Abstract Located on Iceland’s southwestern coast, Vetnibörg is a thriving metropolis established to revitalize Iceland’s economy following its financial collapse in 2008. Today, with 240,000 citizens, Vetnibörg boasts the world’s first hydrogen economy, supported by sustainable design principles that reduce the use of non-renewable resources and create a healthy environment for its citizens. Vetnibörg’s multifaceted energy infrastructure harnesses renewable, carbon neutral energy. Enhanced Geothermal Systems offer forty times the energy capacity of traditional geothermal systems. Deep injection wells created by super-pressurized hydro-fractures force water into minute pores in hot basement rocks, causing subsurface crevices to expand. Production wells channel superheated steam from these crevices to turbines, generating clean, abundant energy.

Published June 12, 2015 Wow, can you believe our bar guide is five years old already? That means, in just 15 years, it will be old enough to go drinking downtown. And it’ll definitely know all the best places when it does. Over the last few weeks, we sent our team (who previously could have been described as “fresh-faced and intrepid”, but are now more “grey-faced and shaking”) to grab a beer, people-watch, and take in the atmosphere of Reykjavík’s many downtown bars, and report back accordingly.
