The Svartsengi Power Station (Svartsengi (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈsvar̥sˌɛi̯ɲcɪ]); "black meadow" in Icelandic) is a geothermal power station located about 4 km north of Grindavík, Iceland, near the Keflavík International Airport on the Reykjanes Peninsula. As of December 2007, it produces 76.5 MW of energy, and about 475 litres/second of 90 °C (194 °F) hot water (ca. 80 MWt). Surplus mineral-rich water from the plant fills up the Blue Lagoon, a popular bathing resort.

Carbon Recycling International's first renewable methanol plant is located next to Svartsengi.
