The report estimated profits of between ISK 4 billion (USD 32 million, EUR 24 million) and ISK 76 billion (USD 613 million, EUR 470 million), reports.

Iceland has been considering the sale of geothermal energy to the U.K. via high-voltage cables across the ocean floor.

Iceland and the U.K. signed a declaration of intent last year on cooperation between the two states in the field of energy with special emphasis on the utilization of renewable energy resources.
