Entire nation aiming at total fossil fuel independence

In Iceland, policy makers are moving the country to complete fossil fuel independence. Eighty percent of the country’s energy is already derived from renewable sources – notably geothermal – the next step is a national charging network for electric cars. Northern Lights Energy, which provides infrastructure and services for electric vehicles in the country, has signed an agreement with the Reva Electric Car Company to jointly develop the EV in Iceland. Mitsubishi is also sampling its i-MiEV electric car in the country. If it manages to transform its transport sector and fishing fleet, Iceland would become the world’s first 100% energy independent country.
