    One of the advantages of operating the power intensive industry is the potential access to clean energy, which is increasingly sought for with the demand for less environmental effects from operations. Hydropower energy is an example of clean energy, generated by harnessing waterfalls. Hydropower is commonly used within the power intensive industry for aluminum production. Majority of the hydropower generated in Iceland is applied by the power intensive industry.
