China and Iceland: an unlikely renewable energy partnership?
Asian country’s Premier, Wen Jiabao, recently finished a tour of the Arctic state to hash out an agreement to share intellectual resources on renewable energy development.

Wen, a trained geologist, is hoping that his country can learn skills in marine and polar science by pairing energy companies from the two nations on collaborative projects.
