It is a well known fact that Greenland holds a wealth of untapped natural resources. However, these don’t just include raw materials in the Greenlandic underground, as proclaimed by Energy Minister Kalistat Lund on Tuesday at the World Hydrogen Summit in the Netherlands.

At the conference, he invited interested parties to consider plans for two hydropower plants north of Nuuk in Tasersiaq and Tarsartuup Tasersua. By next year already, the Greenlandic government expects to carry out a tender for the two facilities. With a capacity of 600MW and 200MW, respectively, construction of the projects is slated to start in 2027.
