Oslo is a pioneer in green transport solutions. Road transport accounts for the major part of the GHG emissions in the region. Political ambitions, the use of national and regional incentives and companies providing innovative solutions has made Norway and the Oslo region world leading on green transport. We have designed a couple of tours that will give you insight in the status for green transport and how the challenges in the Oslo region are solved.
Oslo is world-leading on electric mobility with a market share of battery electric passenger vehicles of 30% in 2017!
Oslo region is leading the way on hydrogen for transport, with several refuelling stations, Fuel Cell Electric vehicles and hydrogen buses.
Biogas is the perfect example of circular economy. Municipal waste from Oslo becomes fuel for public transport in the region. Learn how and why!
Green transport tours
Tour 1: The Norwegian Electric Vehicle Success
Norway is the country with the highest per capita share of EVs in the world. This success is primarily due to a range of incentives that eliminated the price advantage of diesel and gasoline cars in Norway. But, it is also due to Norwegians being willing to try new technology, and companies providing charging infrastructure, digital solutions and vehicles. On this tour you will learn about:
