Views from the inside – geothermal energy pioneers in Iceland


  • PUBLISHED: February 12, 2018

During a visit to Iceland, Miki Plichta from Slovakia interviewed remarkable pioneers working with geothermal energy power in the island.

The author of the interviews, the Slovakian Miki Plichta, believes that the energy beneath our feet needs to gain a stronger branding, so he undertook this trip to Iceland hoping to make the meaningful impact in the industrial community, especially in his country. As a matter of fact, the general public in Slovakia knows too little about geothermal power and its use, and the perception of geothermal energy applications is limited to the extent of hot springs and wellness resorts. With this testimony from Iceland, Plichta wanted to tell a different story.

Currently, Slovakia – known as long-time supportive of its mining industry – is considering a coal phase-out, and geothermal energy could help such transition; of its coal regions has been considered by EC Commissioner Sefcovic as a pillar for the initiative Coal Regions in Transition.

You can freely access 4 interviews and meet unquestionable pioneers in this area. Namely, the guide from Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Station, chef of Kjot & Kunst restaurant, owner of Fridheimar Farm, and founder of Secret Lagoon. Discourses include the showcase of 3,000 km hot water piping system, instant boiling pot, and tasting of all year tomatoes cultivation.
