The electric car policy works

Gunnar S. Eskeland and Asgeir Tomasgard: The electric car policy does not defeat its own end. It reduces emissions, and not in Norway exclusively. But it should be less expensive than it is now.

The emission reductions from electric cars are expensive. So are many other possible measures in Norway, too. And we agree with many that when the electric car support policy works, it should almost be a matter of course: It is powerful, Gunnar S. Eskeland and Asgeir Tomasgard write.

Their chronicle Elbilpolitikken virker (in Norwegian) was published in Dagens Næringsliv on 3 September, 2020.
