Geothermal and Hydropower Production in Icelandby Duane J. Rosa, Univ of Iceland, Canyon, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Water Management in the '90s: A Time for Innovation
Abstract: This paper will first consider the technical aspects of both hydropower and geothermal power production in Iceland. Then the economic consequences of the alternative utilization of these energy sources will be evaluated. The first alternative to be considered will be the direct export of power by HVDC submarine cable to other countries such as Scotland or United Kingdom. Iceland could as a second alternative, concentrate its efforts on bringing in energy intensive industries into the country.
