Electrification is one of the most effective tools to address climate change and achieve a more sustainable society. Currently electrification is happening all over the world, but the pace of development in Norway can serve as an inspiration for the rest of the world. Almost all of Norway’s power generation, around 98 per cent, comes from renewable hydroelectric power.
The country is in pole position to become the first fully electrical country in the world. The Urban Insight report, “Race to electrification: Norway in a pole position”, analyses the measures required for countries to achieve 100 per cent electrification and identifies actions that are necessary for electrifying the transport, buildings and industry sectors.
