organisation profile

Iceland GeoSurvey is a self-financing, state-owned, non-profit institution. It receives no direct funding from the government and operates on a project and contract basis like a private company.

Iceland GeoSurvey was established 2003, when the GeoScience Division of Orkustofnun, the National Energy Authority of Iceland, was spun off as a separate entity. It is based on seven decades of continuous experience in the field of geothermal and hydropower research and development. During this period Iceland GeoSurvey have provided consulting, training, and scientific services to the Icelandic power industry and the Icelandic government, and to numerous foreign companies and governments all over the world. Although our focus is on geothermal exploration, development, and utilization, our experience covers many other geoscience-related fields as well, including groundwater studies, marine geology, and environmental monitoring.

Iceland GeoSurvey is committed to:

  • being in the forefront of geoscientific research, development, and service
  • finding ways to enhance and augment geothermal resources
  • enhancing the environment and contributing to the debate on environmental issues
  • actively promoting geothermal development by increasing public and political awareness and understanding
  • training scientists throughout the world in geothermal science and development
  • participating in international geothermal development projects
