The tendering and licencing procedure for the exploitation of hydropower in Greenland for the production of electricity for industry or a commercial project is presented in “Invitation to Dialogue”.
Greenland’s approach and understanding of sustainability are rooted in the triple bottom line approach. To be truly sustainable, we need to implement policies that balance the social, environmental and economic dimensions of sustainability.
The tendering and licencing procedure was announced at the World Hydrogen Summit in Rotterdam on 10 May 2022 by the Minister of Agriculture, Self-Sufficiency, Energy and Environment Kalistat Lund in a keynote speech. Read the speech here
Initial Market dialogue: September – November 2022
