Caption: Capturing geothermal steam from boreholes to power the Svartsengi geothermal power station in Keflavik near Reykjavik in Iceland. The power station produces 76.5 MW of electricity as well as 475 litres per second of hot water for household heating. Iceland's electricity is 100% renewable, made up of about 70% hydro and 30% geothermal.
