The city of Oslo has unveiled a grant scheme
allowing private companies in the Norwegian capital to develop projects that promote climate-friendly travel between home and work.
The city says the Climate and Energy Fund can provide grants up to 50% of the total cost of the measure with a maximum amount of NOK 250,000 (£23,000) per company per year.
It is available for travel between home and the workplace and business trips to and from the workplace during the working day.
The grant will only be available for projects involving the implementation of bicycle parking places if it can be documented that the measure will contribute to a reduction in fossil fuel car traffic.
Each project must include a description of the measure and its expected effect as well as information on the estimated budget and any current offers from suppliers.
