Alternate Sources

I've mentioned before that my mother-in-law is Icelandic. We visited there as a family years ago and I fell in love with the rugged beauty of the country. Volcanoes, glaciers, natural hot springs, rolling meadows, lava fields, mountains and sea; it is so diverse!

Iceland is home to the youngest island on earth: Surtsey. The island was born from a volcanic eruption, perhaps one of the reasons Iceland's moniker is the Land of Fire and Ice. I was fascinated by the natural resources of the country and how 99% of Iceland is powered by clean energy. A few examples:

Geothermal power

Hydroelectric power

and though I don't recall seeing any wind farms, I can assure you wind is another of Iceland's alternate sources of energy!
