Hydropower – the source of Hydro百姓彩票手机下载,百姓彩票正式版下载 ,百姓彩票投注
Hydro may be best known as the world’s only fully integrated aluminium company, but our name betrays our history as pioneers in hydropower production. It all started in 1906 when we built a hydroelectric power plant at Svelgfoss, close to Notodden in Norway, to provide energy for our first potassium nitrate plant.

In 1963, we opened our first aluminium production plant based on hydropower on Karm?y, an island off the Norwegian west coast. This also marked the beginning of Hydro’s journey to become the world’s leading company in sustainable aluminium production.
Today, we operate more than 20 hydropower facilities throughout Norway, providing around 10TWh of clean and renewable energy annually for our aluminium production.

Because it takes a lot of energy to produce aluminium, it is very important to use energy sources that leave a small carbon footprint. An aluminium plant that base its electricity on coal, as is common in several regions of the world, has five times higher CO2 emissions than one that base it on electricity from renewable sources. Therefore, our core strategy is to grow our operations in regions of the world where we can use power with zero emissions, such as hydropower, windpower, solar power and more.

True to our tradition of pioneering cleaner energy and more efficient production methods for primary aluminium, Hydro Karm?y is now the keystone in our biggest effort ever to modernize and streamline production methods in order to reduce our energy consumption. Based on HAL4e-technology from our research center in ?rdal, Norway, Hydro Karm?y will cut energy consumption by 15% compared to the world average and also sprout other innovations that will fortify our position as the world’s leading sustainable aluminium producer.
