Already new electric car sales account for 17% of all car sales and 24% of the population drive an electric or hybrid vehicle. To help accommodate the project increase in electricity consumption they are to tipple their wind turbine production. They already have 99% of their electricity produced by hydro and may be a net exporter of green electricity to countries like the United Kingdom. When the North Sea oil and gas reserves dry up they will have another valuable energy export.
Speaking about the possible 2025 ban on non-electric cars, Elon Musk, chief executive of US electric car company Tesla Motors, lauded the announcement.
“Just heard that Norway will ban new sales of fuel cars in 2025,” he wrote. “What an amazingly awesome country. You guys rock!!”.
