Renewable energy I 2/2

 

Renewable energy is a general term for forms of energy which are unlimited and which do not emit CO2.

The list currently includes:

• Hydropower

• Wind power

• Biomass

• Solar energy (photovoltaic and solar thermal)

• Wave and tidal power

• Geothermal energy

Greenland’s strategic development reflects the objective of an ever more environmentally friendly / greener energy that can reduce dependence on foreign fuel. Today there are five hydroelectric plants that supply six cities - Nuuk (Buksefjorden 1993)  Tasiilaq (2005), Ilulissat (2013), Qorlortorsuaq (Qaqortoq, Narsaq 2007) and Sisimiut (2010). Weather conditions in Greenland - where it either blows too little, too rarely or too vigorously – prevents a greater use of wind power by the current technology. Solar cells on the other hand might have a future in Greenland, where summer brings many production hours.
