Oil-rich nations shifting from fossil fuels to renewables

Oil-rich nations shifting from fossil fuels to renewables

The government of Norway recently decided to allocate $14 billion USD ($120bn Norwegian Kronor) from its $1 trillion oil fund in order to finance investments into renewable energy projects. As Europe's largest producer of petroleum and one of the world's largest suppliers of oil, Norway's decision is a clear sign that even oil-rich nations are shifting away from fossil fuels in the global battle against climate change.
