Reliable Supply

Reliable supply

Landsvirkjun was founded 50 years ago and operates 16 power stations all over Iceland. The Company’s oldest hydropower stations have been in operation for almost 80 years. The Icelandic energy sector has amassed extensive knowledge and experience in harnessing the country’s main energy sources, hydropower and geothermal energy.

Iceland does not depend on fossil fuels for power production. The fuel-less nature of Iceland’s power avoids the vulnerabilities of fuel delivery. Both hydropower and geothermal energy are continuously available.

Iceland's transmission grid has been built around power-intensive industries that require a high level of power transmission. Iceland’s power delivery record is among the world’s best, and the country has consistently ranked in the top ten by the World Economic Forum for quality of electricity supply.
