Orvika Rosnes

Orvika Rosnes is economist (PhD) with over twenty years of experience in energy and climate policy analyses, both as a researcher and as a consultant.

She has worked on issues related to environmental and climate policies, as well as regulation, market structure and investments in power markets, especially in the Nordic and Northern European power markets and Emission Trading System (EU ETS). From the initial focus on power and carbon markets, she has now turned her attention to economy-wide analyses. Recent projects include studies of energy efficiency in households.

Orvika is an expert in model-based scenario analyses. She has experience both in partial equilibrium models and in general equilibrium (CGE) models. Recent work includes development of a new CGE model for Norway. Previous work includes development of computable models for analyses of international climate policies (including the carbon market under the EU Emission Trading System (EU ETS) and the flexible mechanisms under the Kyoto Protocol), and a power sector model for Sub-Saharan Africa. She has also experience with other methods, especially cost-benefit analyses.
