The last paragraph of the article sums it up very nicely:

"While tiny Iceland is unlikely to become a global renewable energy powerhouse, the world could learn from the resourcefulness of this remote northern island. Banking on sustainable power could both shore up its sagging economy and help build a bridge to a fossil-fuel-free future."

I'd be very careful with harvesting geo thermal energy.

right you are Susanne - we could definitely learn a lot about Iceland's priorities and the way it stimulated its economy after devastation! - of course - while it's still called Iceland and not Greenland II
