Hydropower Is The Lifeblood Of Iceland

Powered by RedCircle

Iceland, Like Canada, has two colossal energy draws in homes and businesses, heat and electricity. Iceland has made the best possible use of its abundant geothermal energy by replacing fossil fuels for heat. Geothermal power, however, doesn’t supply the lion’s share of electricity in Iceland, Hydropower does. Hydropower started early in Iceland and has provided the majority of energy in Iceland since the early energy transition. In this episode, we’re going to go through the process that Iceland took to get to the energy sector success they have today. We’re also going to go through the general technologies that are most relevant to this sector, similar to what we did for the geothermal episode. There was a lot of research for this one, which is all linked below if you want to check them out!
