Panel on First Movers Coalition

Norwegian Minister of Trade and Industry Jan Christian Vestre visited Washington, DC, during the week of September 5.

On Thursday, September 8, he delivered remarks and participated in an Embassy panel focused on the First Movers Coalition, a U.S.-led initiative promoting green energy technology. Norway joined the FMC earlier this year.

In addition to the Minister, the Embassy would also like to thank the other panelists: Varun Sivaram (Managing Director and Senior Advisor to the U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate), Robin Millican (Director of Policy and Advocacy at Breakthrough Energy), and Lars Røsæg (Executive Vice President of Corporate Development and Deputy CEO at Yara International). The moderator for the program was Josh Freed (Senior Vice President for the Climate and Energy Program at Third Way).
