Amazing renewable energy in #Norway #hydropower

A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

In Norway, 98 percent of the electricity production come from renewable energy sources. Hydropower is the source of most of the production.

Hydropower has been the basis for Norwegian industry and the development of a welfare society since we started utilizing the energy in rivers and waterfalls to produce energy in the late 1800s. Since then, the Norwegian hydropower has become an increasingly important part of the Norwegian society. The usage of electricity has increased in line with the modernisation and economic growth in Norway.
