  • 21. Green Industry Innovation Objective: Increased competitiveness of green enterprises, including greening of existing industries, green innovation and green entrepreneurship   Expected outcomes Realisation of business opportunities of greening the European economy Reduced production of waste and reduced emissions to air, water and ground More use of environmentally friendly technologies Increased green job creation and Entrepreneurship   Relevance of support Competiveness of green enterprises and the development and implementation of innovative technologies are instrumental in moving towards a greener economy. Norway and the EU subscribe to the principle of sustainable development and share a common objective of creating competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economies. Climate change prompts the urgency of greening economies by minimising emissions and energy used per percentage of GDP created. Investments in green innovation can strengthen economic growth and inspire environmental and eco-sensitive management and production. “EU 2020” emphasises the need for greener and more innovative economies. Green industry development, innovation and entrepreneurship support the efforts of the EU Energy and Climate Package. Suggested activities Improvements of technology and processes, waste and waste water management, energy efficiency, certification and verifications, strengthening of competences and capacity building Innovative services and smart purchasing, both in public and private sectors Support projects to implement technologies and standards necessary to comply with EU/EEA legislation in the field of environment and energy Development and implementation of strategies for greening of management and production processes Development of public strategies for green industrial development Cross-cutting training and awareness-raising activities Promotion of female and young entrepreneurship

  • Renewable Energy Objective: Increased share of renewable energy in energy use   Expected outcomes A less carbon-dependent economy Increased renewable energy production Increased use of renewable energy in the transport sector Increased feed-in of renewable energy to existing energy infrastructures Developed strategies to improve the use of green investment schemes Improved capacity at national, regional and local level on renewable energy solutions Increased awareness of and education in renewable energy solutions Relevance of support Renewable sources of energy – wind power, solar power (thermal, photovoltaic and concentrated), hydro-electric power, tidal power, aero-thermal, geothermal energy, and biomass – are essential alternatives to fossil fuels. Their use reduces greenhouse gas emissions and diversifies the energy supply. The growth of renewable energy sources also stimulates employment in Europe, the creation of new technologies and increased trade. The introduction of renewable energy will contribute as such to a necessary energy source shift towards a less carbon-dependent economy. Suggested activities Activities to increase the use of bio-based solutions Measures for increased use of renewable energy Measures for increased use of renewable energy in transport (e.g. biofuels) Infrastructure development (e.g. networks) relevant for renewable energy Capacity-building, e.g. in respect of developing plans and policies Co-processing in industry, e.g. by using waste as an energy source
