Britain could be powered by Icelandic

10 posts in this topic

Britain could become powered by Icelandic volcanoes as the government looks abroad for a solution to its green energy problem.

Charles Hendry, the energy minister, will visit the country next month to discuss a possible deal to harvest low-carbon energy from the natural geothermal energy of Iceland's volcanoes.

The arrangement would involve laying the longest high-voltage cable in the world across hundreds of miles of ocean floor between Britain and Iceland.

Mr Hendry told the Guardian the government was in "active discussions" over the project and that Iceland appeared "very keen" on the proposal.

Or they could just charge you through the nose.

Interesting idea. Britain gets a new source of energy and Iceland gets a boost to their economy.

They owe us after they stole all of our savings! We should get reduced rates. I really hope this idea gets off the ground.

Works for us. Can't see why it wouldn't work for Britain. Then again, they have more power needs.

New Zealand has got 4 million people. Britain has got 63 million people and it's rising fast, on course to overtake Germany as Western Europe's most populous nation. It's time that Britain stopped messing and started building more nuclear power stations. All this faffing about trying to find poxy, useless "green" energy sources means the country's power is going to go down in about 15 years' time.

When Mount Saint Helens erupted it was the equivalent of a 350 Megaton nuclear bomb, and how many stations do you need to get 350 Megaton? heck loads. It does not matter what the population is.
