Learning outcomes

    Ensuring access to a clean, reliable and cost effective energy system is one of the foremost challenges of the coming decades. Making the transition from traditional, fossil fuel dominated energy systems to modern, renewable systems will require substantial rethinking of how we deliver energy products to consumers. From storage to smart-grid technology, the implementation of these new systems stands on the cutting edge of energy research and is of critical importance in the development of sustainable energy systems. With its small, modern and isolated grid powered almost entirely by renewables, Iceland is an ideal location to study these emerging technologies.
