Iceland Plans to Export Geothermal Energy


iceland-geo
Iceland sits on one of the world's greatest geothermal hot spots and a recent discovery of underground lava has increased the amount of geothermal energy the county could be harnessing.  Iceland already gets 81 percent of order cheap viagra its electricity from the renewable resource and expects to be fully powered by renewable energy by 2050.  With most of its energy needs met, it wants to share with the generic viagra companies rest of Europe.

Iceland's biggest utility company, Landsvirkjun, has announced a plan to build the world's longest undersea cable at 1,180 miles long to carry up to five billion kWh of electricity a year to we use it cialis for daily use European countries -- enough to power 1.25 million homes.  That much energy would be worth several hundred million dollars.

Such a cable will not be cheap to build, but in the long run, Iceland would have a really nice source of revenue and Europe would have an abundant source of clean energy.

Submarine power cables run about $10 million per mile. That's about $12 billion just for the cable. Industrial electricity prices are around 14 cents per kWh, so wholesale sales of 5 billion kWh come in somewhere under $700 million. It would take 17 years just to pay for the cable.

My bad, I meant to say 70% of electricity comes from hydro and 66% of primary energy comes from geothermal.

can't we all just get along?

@ accounting magic, I'm sure they could come up with some agreement with the cable company, piggyback a cable project, or just make it themselves avoiding resale costs. there is always negotiation and economies of scale. It's in multiple stakeholder's best interest.

You Can't Keep A Good Country Down...

Bravo to Iceland. Even after allowing 5 of its banks to fail and having to practically give away hotel rooms for several months after their economy's meltdown, they deserve this good fortune. By making their electricity available to others, they will rebuild their economy on a truly sustainable foundation.
