Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
norway's electricity is all hydro no?

Yes, but I'd thought that plentiful gas available for heating, the wooden (thus weakly heat-isolated) homes and (I thought) less mass transit outside Oslo than Finland has in the Southern region, together mean more consumption.

The Norwegian are all hydro and all electric heating. The high emissions come from burning gas at all the offshore platforms to generate heat and power. That increases their emissions like 50 % IIRC.

So they are considering linking the platforms with the grid.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
