The CLIMIT programme is a collaboration between Gassnova and the Research Council of Norway. The Research Council’s projects are often referred to as CLIMIT R&D, while Gassnova’s part is referred to as CLIMIT Demo.
CLIMIT encompasses the Research Council’s subsidy scheme for research and development (the R&D part) and Gassnova’s support for development and demonstration (the demo part).
