Iceland Powers Europe Through Underwater Cable

Iceland Powers Europe Through Underwater Cable

Iceland has plans to construct the world's longest underwater electric cable in order to enable the country to sell its geothermal energy to the rest of Europe.

The proposed cable could deliver up to 5 billion kilowatt-hours to the mainland, enough to power 1.25 million homes. The cable, which would extend as far as 1,180 miles from Landsvirkjun, could be connected to the larger cities in Britain, Norway, Holland and Germany.

The proposed cable comes on the heels of the discovery of a near surface seam of magma in Iceland which could potentially be tapped and harnessed for use.
