    • 50$/fat - hva har Norge da råd til? 

      Holmøy, Erling; Heide, Kim Massey (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2006)
      Mye tyder på at forventningene om den langsiktige realprisen på olje kan ha doblet seg til rundt 50$/fat i løpet av de siste par år. I så fall har Norge fått nesten halvannen ekstra petroleumsformue sammenlignet med hva ...

      Holtsmark, Bjart (Discussion papers;778, Working paper, 2014-04)
      Traditionally, wood fuels, like other bioenergy sources, have been considered carbon neutral because the amount of CO2 released can be offset by CO2 sequestration due to the regrowth of the biomass. Thus, until recently, ...
