The Nesjavellir Geothermal Power Plant services the Greater Reykjavík Area's hot water needs. 99 percent
of Iceland's electricity comes from renewable resources

Renewable energy provides over 70% of the nation's primary energy. Over 99% of the country's electricity is produced from hydropower and geothermal energy, and the country expects to be energy-independent by 2050. Iceland's largest geothermal power plant is located in Nesjavellir, while the Kárahnjúkar dam will be the country's largest hydroelectric power plant.

Nonetheless, Icelanders still emit 10.0 tonnes of CO2 equivalent of greenhouse gasses per capita, higher than France or Spain. This is due to the wide use of personal transport. Iceland is one of the few countries that have filling stations dispensing hydrogen fuel for cars powered by fuel cells. It is also one of a few countries currently capable of producing hydrogen in adequate quantities at a reasonable cost, because of Iceland's plentiful geothermal energy.

While in the past there has been minimal oil and gas production in Iceland, on January 22, 2009 Iceland announced its first round of offshore licensing to companies looking to explore for hydrocarbons in the region.
