Spokesperson Håvard Lundberg told The Foreigner, “the climate fund has been one of our main proposals for the white paper on climate policy.”

The new fund for climate, energy, and using alternative energy forms is aimed at contributing to develop technology to reduce emissions. 

Politicians are to allocate an extra 5 billion kroner next year to give capital of 30 billion kroner. Towards 2020, this will be gradually increased to 50 billion kroner.
