Technology_145

Entry: Renewable
Focus: Nordic Energy Solutions


The official showcase for Nordic renewable energy strongholds. The Nordic countries generate 63 percent of their electricity from renewable sources. No other region in the world can match this. We do have a lot of rain, mountains, forests and wind to work with, but crucially we have the technology to exploit these resources and a political framework that encourages innovation and the use of clean energy sources.
