NVE said this on the conference "Norges Energidager", where they presented a European report which compares 21 European central grid companies. NVE concludes, based on the report, that there is no basis for reducing Statnett's cost norm for the 2014 revenue cap. This means that the revenue cap will continue to equal the cost base.

The report places Statnett among the most cost efficient central grid companies in Europe, and also shows that Statnett's operational and maintenance cost has increased compared to the period 2007-2011.
