The Oslo Region is a leading region in Europe in zero emission transport, renewable electricity and waste treatment. In line with national priorities, the City of Oslo and the surrounding areas of Eastern Norway is focused on a wide rollout for electric vehicles, hydrogen and biofuels, both for private and public transportation. As the hydroelectric production is largely owned by local authorities, the European electricity, energy and climate politics plays a vital role, and is watched closely. Counties of the Oslo Region also participates in numerous EU-funded Energy, Climate and Transportation projects.
