There is great potential for cooperation between Norway and Chile in the hydropower sector. Norwegian companies have seen extensive opportunities in the fast growing Chilean market. Both the topography and human interaction appear to make Norway and Chile a good match.
Sub-Sahara Africa (Mozambique and Zambia)
During the last few years, Norwegian companies in the hydropower sector have been looking towards Mozambique and its neighbouring country Zambia. Both countries have substantial hydropower potential and relatively stable political systems.
