CE4EUIslands forum 2023 - Lessons learnt from the technical assistance to the islands


Publication Date

The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat (3E) has provided techno-economic support to 40 islands, focusing on stakeholder engagement and connecting stakeholders. They have compiled pre-feasibility studies on clean energy technologies for different islands. Three technical examples include renewable desalination with wind and solar energy on Chios, assessing the feasibility of floating offshore wind and solar PV for island self-consumption and electrification of ferry transport on Halki, and electrifying a fishing fleet with solar and wind on Arousa. Assistance needs to translate into actual projects.
