The industry cluster's advice to politicians: - Increase investment in renewable energy exports!

The climate crisis and the world's need to take it seriously represents a huge business opportunity in an area where Norway has considerable expertise, namely climate-friendly energy technologies.

"We have to build less and renovate more - more energy-efficiently. We have to use existing buildings more efficiently - to do that we need smarter - existing - buildings!"

Harald A. Nitavskis, Head of Department Digital Property Management, NMBU
