Iceland Goes Oil Free

Category: Environment

iceland_small.jpeReykjavik: Iceland's geothermal riches have made it a leader in alternative energy for years, but now, by tapping deeper into that free energy source, Iceland aims to be completely oil free by 2050.

And many busses are already running on hydrogen power.
