Developing self-sustainable energy systems on islands — islanders leading the change

In its Clean Energy for All Europeans package, the Commission announced an initiative for a clean energy transition for EU islands. Islands’ environments create specific challenges which require tailor-made solutions, using innovations and energy transition technologies. These include, inter alia, renewables integration, micro-grids, energy efficiency, energy storage and batteries and e-mobility.

This session aims to:
1. provide an update on the Commission’s initiative for a clean energy transition for islands;
2. inform the audience about projects for decarbonisation on islands;
3. discuss how islanders’ engagement and support contribute to the Commission’s plans for a clean energy transition for EU islands;
4. present the key factors that could interest business in financially supporting projects.
