Responsible and sustainable for more than century
The United Nations defines renewable energy as energy derived from natural sources that are replenished at a higher rate than they are consumed. Sunlight and wind, are such sources that are constantly being replenished.
Renewable energy sources are plentiful all around us. Generating renewable energy creates far lower emissions than burning fossil fuels, like coal, oil and gas. Iceland is the rock of renewable energy, located up in the north between the two continents; America and Europe.
Iceland is rich of natural resources and have been fortunate to manage it in a responsible and sustainable way, which is one of the key factor of prosperity and wellbeing in Iceland.
