The Ministry of Industries and Innovation has submitted the report to Alþingi, Iceland’s parliament. There, it will soon be discussed and subsequently forwarded to relevant committees. What happens after that depends on the parliamentarians’ view of the matter.

In recent years, Great Britain has shown interest in purchasing electricity from Iceland. Iceland’s previous government decided to explore the idea’s viability.

Britain needs to increase the ratio of renewable energy sources and is also looking to increase its power generating options.
