Final investments in 2014 covering manufacturing, mining and quarrying and electricity supply amounted to NOK 44.0 billion measured in current value; 6 per cent higher than the corresponding figure for 2013. High investment figures within electricity supply, together with a solid increase in manufacturing investments, explain this growth.
New estimates for 2015 indicate that total investments are expected to be 8 per cent higher than the corresponding figure for 2014. A further growth in transmission and distribution of electricity together with a positive outlook for export-related manufacturing explains this rise.
