Samorka – Icelandic Energy and Utilities
Samorka is a federation of the Icelandic electricity industry, district heatings, waterworks and sewage utilities in Iceland. The federation was founded in 1995 when the Federation of Icelandic Electric-works and the Federation of Icelandic District Heatings and Waterworks merged. All district heating services and electric-works, most waterworks and a number of sewage utilities in the country are members of this federation. Samorka operates in the four fields mentioned above.
Among the purposes and tasks of the federation are forwarding the mutual interests of its members, guarding their interests in mutual projects, fostering research and gathering information for its members as well as for public authorities, hosting seminars and conferences and acting on behalf of the members in mutual projects.
Currently, Samorka has three full-time employees, with one former employee still assisting with certain tasks.
