Norway Is Planning An Entire Sustainable City

Oslo Airport wants to set a new standard in sustainable aviation. Last year, it launched a new green terminal that was certificated as the the world’s first. Now, it wants to build an entirely new, sustainable city around the airport. The original goal was to cut back 50 percent of the airport’s energy use. The terminal was built from natural wood and stone from forests that were sustainable. Windows were placed to maximize daylight use and to give travelers a glimpse of the area surrounding them. Now, travelers visiting Oslo Airport will be able to experience the development of a sustainable city. Aiming to produce more energy than it consumes, the city will stretch out to nearly 1,000 acres. It will essentially be a prototype of a future city run on renewable power and driverless public transportation.

Norway, New Zealand, Washington State more than a few grids are now at 70%-80% "renewables." It's a fact. Everything's possible if you are determined.

Norway is the best in renewables. Fact: They use more energy per capita than any country in the world!

Generally, I agree with you. But do not forget - Norway's economy is based on oil, oil and oil.  Fact is renewables can never "work" like oil.

I didn't know Norway maybe having the best managed hydropower systems in the world, which accounts for  - 99 percent of the total power generated in the country. That’s absolutely incredible
