Oslo has launched a grant scheme to support the installation of charging stations for electric buses (and trucks) in the Norwegian capital. The first round of funding through the “Climate and Energy Fund” saw Oslo bear up to 80 percent of the installation costs.

So far, 28 new fast charging stations for electric trucks and buses in Oslo have received 25 million Norwegian kroner (about 2.3 million euros), which is precisely 80 percent of the cost. The first round of applications ended on December 1, 2022. The deadline for the second round is March 1. Fastcharge and ST1 were winners for the first round of grants and will implement the 28 new fast chargers.
