WHY SOLAR POWER FOR THE ARCTIC?
In addition to energy self-sufficiency & the fight against climate change, there are numerous reasons to invest in Arctic solar power. Here are a few:
Thanks to the construction of wind power, western Lapland has excellent electrical grids and good infrastructure.
Northern Finland & Sweden have a sharply growing demand for green electricity & hydrogen due to carbon neutrality targets for industry and tourism.
Lapland has ample space, reasonable land rent prices, and the approval of the local population for the solar parks.
The construction of the power plants in the north is ecological. There is little need to cut down forests or decommission farmland.
Western Lapland benefits from the nightless summer nights & the Foehn effect caused by the Scandinavian mountains, creating a unique microclimate.
The new double-sided solar cells enable the utilization of radiation reflected from snow and make operations even more profitable.
