Greenland's Green Energy Opportunities

Greenland is the world’s largest energy island. It holds vast untapped renewable energy resources, including hydropower, wind energy, solar power, and in the future energy from waves and tides when the technology is developed.

The hydropower potential in the Tasersiaq area alone exceeds 7,000 GWh annually. When combined with other large-scale hydropower resources in West Greenland, the estimated power potential reaches 20,000 GWh.

These resources surpass Greenland's total energy demand, which means that Greenland has the opportunity to become a significant green energy exporter in the future.

Our Core Business Areas

NunaGreen Construction

Our team at NunaGreen brings genuine expertise in planning and constructing large-scale hydropower plants in the Arctic region. We have the responsibility of building hydropower plants in Greenland for our domestic energy use, which encompasses financial responsibilities, government permits, construction management, and business development. In close collaboration with the public utility company Nukissiorfiit, we will empower the national community and economy by nearly doubling Greenland’s green energy production.

NunaGreen Development

To develop commercial projects and diversify Greenland’s economy, we build business cases for off-take industries. We enable energy investments and deploy Greenland’s hydropower potential by financing projects through long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with off-takers including P2X production. NunaGreen acts as either the sole developer or as partners in joint ventures with external stakeholders, focusing on circular energy flows from new greenfield developments.

Our Ambitions

At NunaGreen, we produce green energy for Greenland’s domestic use so that we can power the country with sustainable and affordable energy. As the partner and producer of P2X products in Greenland, we pave the way for the establishment of 100% green hybrid energy plants across the country.

Green Energy for Green Minerals

In the global green transition, there is a particularly increasing focus on developing green value chains for the mineral sector. At NunaGreen, we seek to secure this value chain in our country so that we can provide affordable and reliable green energy to companies operating in this sector. In the future, we can do this with our hybrid energy plants that combine local green energy sources with back-up capacity from e-fuels.

In the future, this will make Greenland a strong partner for the mineral sector, not least for the rare earth minerals that are essential in the global green transition.

Our Current Projects

NunaGreen is the builder and owner of two new hydropower plants in Greenland, expected to be commissioned by 2029.

By the end of 2024, NunaGreen expects to tender for the construction project regarding the expansion of the existing hydroelectric power plant at Buksefjorden near Nuuk.

The project includes the addition of a new power station by the lake Kangerluarsunnguup Tasia with new turbines with a total of some 76,9 MW in connection with a 16 km long transfer tunnel. The tunnel will connect two mountain lakes Kangerluarsunnguup Tasia and Isortuarsuup Tasia and provide water for the new power station. The new power station will be connected to the existing power station with an approximately 37 km long transmission line with new substations.

76,9 MW Extension of the Buksefjorden Hydropower Plant

Construction of the 22 MW Hydropower Plant and Transmission Lines near Qasigiannguit

In 2026, we will begin the construction of a new 22 MW hydropower plant and transmission lines in the Disko Bay area, south of Qasigiannguit.

The project includes constructing three turbine generators as well as connecting two natural mountain lakes in the area by a transfer tunnel of over 6 km in length. From the hydropower plant, a transmission line will run to a substation near Qasigiannguit, and another line will connect to a substation in Aasiaat. No dam will be built as a part of this project and a thorough environmental assessment of the Naternaq Ramsar site that the second transmission line runs through will be conducted to ensure minimal impact.

The hydropower plant will have a capacity of 22 MW and will provide electricity and heat to the households of Qasigiannguit and the nearby town of Aasiaat. The project is expected to be finalised by the end of 2029.
