Iceland Saturates Its 1,300 Kilometer Route 1 With Network Of 20 ABB DC Fast Chargers
Iceland is a nation of fire and ice, with extreme weather and extreme natural beauty in every direction. It is this natural beauty and the drastic intersections between fire and ice that have allowed the local utility to tap into the fire just under the crust for geothermal power generation. This natural energy source is the big driver that has allowed Iceland to source 80% of its power from renewable energy sources — hydroelectric as well as geothermal power. That renewable energy leadership up till now provides a lucrative opportunity for the island nation to fully decarbonize its transportation with its existing resources.
