This thesis investigates what are the characteristics of resilience within the energy sector, as well as what are the "best” known practices being used to increase awareness of the employees. By looking at the existing literature and finding differences between how the energy sector in Norway vs other nations approaches resilience. There is a difference in Norway's more decentralized power grid, where many smaller power stations supply energy, compared to other nation with single large power station. This influences how they will approach resilience. The study uses a qualitative research approach, with semi-structured interviews to gather data from several organizations within the energy sector of Norway. The results are then analyzed, and compared to existing research, to achieve a theoretical understanding of the result. The study identifies what are the characteristics that can be used to define resilience within the energy sector. And defines how these characteristics can be used to achieve resilience within an organization. Furniture more this study analyzes what constitutes “Best-practices” and if they truly are “best,” before investigating how such practices are used to increase awareness of resilience to the employee of the energy sector.
