Since 2025 in Norway, the ban on the sale of any vehicles operating on fossil fuel energy will begin to operate. This is only one of the 24 items of the electrification program for the whole of Norway, developed by the inter-departmental body “Energi Norge”. The Norwegian fleet of electric vehicles today amounts to 110,000 cars – so that people will be more actively transplanted to them, drivers will be exempted from taxes and make all electric stations free of charge.
Today, 96% of electricity in Norway comes from hydroelectric power stations, so hydropower will become the leading direction of the state’s development in the next decade. Workers and engineers from the oil and gas sector will work here, which will be systematically reduced.
Norway, like many other powers whose wealth is based on natural resources trading, is tasked with responding to climate change and reducing profitability from the sale of oil and gas. At the same time, the country already covers its own energy needs entirely at the expense of the HPP. Now Norway is left to put an end to and reorganize the latest processes in the country to completely abandon fossil fuels .
If you do not wait for changes, and organize them ahead of time, you can avoid problems with job cuts. More than a hundred companies are already included in the Energi Nor plan – there is a chance that by 2050 Norway will truly become the first country in the world completely independent of oil and gas.
