Clean energy for EU islands

Clean energy vision to clean energy action

The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat, an initiative of the European Commission, is the central platform for the clean energy transition of the more than 2,200 inhabited European islands. Despite having access to renewable sources of energy, such as wind and wave energy, many of them depend on expensive fossil fuel imports for their energy supply.

The Islands secretariat’s website acts as a center to showcase best islands practices. It informs about policy and regulatory issues for Europe’s island communities and provides dedicated advice for capacity building and clean energy transitioning.
