Energy Security First and Foremost
"The discourse on public access to energy security and the energy transition is meaningless if energy supply is not secured. The large users are not the ones who are pressing the most, as demand is increasing in all sectors of electricity consumption."

Responsible utilisation of resources
We have set ourselves an ambitious Climate and Environmental Policy.
We respect the Icelandic natural environment and place emphasis on minimising the environmental impact of our operations. We will become carbon neutral in 2025. Then, emissions from the Company’s operations will equal carbon sequestration.
Now is the time to act. We will do our part in the fight against climate change.
Our Power Stations
We operate fifteen hydropower stations, three geothermal power stations and two wind turbines for research purposes in five operating areas in Iceland.
In operating power stations, emphasis is placed on a holistic vision, where prudence, reliability and harmony of the operations with environment and society are the guiding principles.
