Icelandic New Energy celebrated its 20th anniversary by hosting a workshop on the topic: Will Iceland be fossil free by 2040?

As INE’s mission is to eliminate fossil fuel in Icelandic transport, it was fitting that the topic for the company’s anniversary workshop was Will Iceland be fossil free by 2040? Five presentations were given by experts in the field, and a discussion panel followed.
