Urban Insight is based on a series of insight reports written by Sweco experts. It is a long-term initiative with a different theme each year.
The theme for 2019 is Urban Energy, describing various facets of sustainable urban development about energy usage, renewable energy and energy efficiency – with future challenges and opportunities in the new energy landscape. We explore how citizens view and use energy in urban areas and how local circumstances can be improved to create more liveable, sustainable and mobile cities and communities.
The report “Race to Electrification – Norway in Pole Position” analyses the measures required to achieve 100 per cent electrification. The report identifies several possible measures for electrifying the transport, building and industry sectors and summarises the costs and benefits of electrification, using the ongoing electrification in Norway for illustrative purposes.
