Methodology for Determining Baseline

The baseline is composed of relevant budgetary allocations for the fiscal years of 2013-2015, as defined by the Norwegian definition of clean energy RD&D, of the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.

Other Ministries may also have relevant budgetary allocations. These are not included in the MI baseline, nor will they be counted in as part of the target funding amount in 2020. The state budget is decided by the Norwegian parliament annually.

Country-Definition of Clean Energy R&D Investment
