Increasing the CO2 tax towards 2030. Impacts on the Norwegian economy and CO2 emissions

In this report we study the effects of the increased CO2 tax under non-ETS (specifically, reaching NOK 2 000 per tonne of CO2 in 2030). We apply the SNOW-NO model (Statistics Norway’s World model – Norway), which is a numerical general equilibrium model where Norway is modelled as a small, open economy, while the rest of the world is reduced to imports and exports.

Spatial trade-offs in national land-based wind power production in times of biodiversity and climate crises

Energy generated from land-based wind power is expected to play a crucial role in the decarbonisation of the economy.

The road to a low emission society: Costs of interacting climate regulations

Transportation is one of the main contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Climate regulations on transportation are often a mix of sector-specific regulations and economy-wide measures (such as emission pricing).

Fire hazard in Norwegian coastal heathlands

Unmanaged and overgrown coastal heathlands pose a great fire hazard. This is due to the combination of old, dead heather and the growth of spruce and juniper, which are highly flammable and burn explosively.
