The EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA) has given the go-ahead for a Norwegian support scheme that aims to contribute to investments in infrastructure for alternative fuels.

The scheme aims to help companies that want to make it easier to refuel their own low- and zero-emission vehicles and machines.

Reducing emissions in the transport sector is a crucial part of Norway’s strategy to cut greenhouse gas emissions and meet its obligations under the Paris Agreement, the ESA pointed out in a press release.

The Authority also noted that Norway supports the EU’s green environment plan, which requires a 90% reduction in transport emissions to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

The ESA monitors compliance with European Economic Area (EEA) rules in Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway, enabling them to participate in the European Internal Market.
