In Norway's largest cities there have been demonstrations against tolls. Demonstrators believe such environmental policies are unjust. UiO's new research centre will find solutions to how energy measures can be both environmentally friendly and socially just. Photo: John M / Wikipedia CC BY-SA 3.0
The centre, named INCLUDE (from ‘INCLUsive Decarbonization and Energy transition’), was presented at a conference in Oslo 21 May, and is one of two new FMEs (Research Centres for Environmentally friendly Energy) established by the Research Council of Norway.
INCLUDE will be led by Professor Tanja Winther, Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM), UiO.
