Clean energy for EU islands

Battery storage

Infinite Renewables Ltd.

Infinite was formed in 2010 as a specialist renewable energy developer to create merchant wind power schemes for commercial clients. Since then, we have delivered multiple commercial wind turbines and large-scale Solar  schemes across the UK and are now pioneering multi-technology renewable and Energy Centres to provide more secure, reliable and cost-effective energy directly to business communities.


LocalRES is an EU-funded project that will deploy innovative local energy systems to put renewable energy into the hands of communities and people. The project will boost structural changes in the current energy system at different levels: generation, market, distribution and consumers.


FLASC is developing a Hydro-Pneumatic Energy Storage (HPES) system tailored for offshore applications. The objective is to bridge the gap between intermittent renewable energy production and a fluctuating consumer demand. This allows, for example, large offshore wind farms to improve the quality of the power that they provide to consumer grids, and also to supply reliable power to island grids and remote offshore locations, such as oil & gas infrastructure.

Tune in! Battery energy storage enabling sustainable islands

Listen to the ALBATTS Interview with Duarte Conde Silva, Plant Manager at Graciolica. 

What are the challenges of installing a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in Azores, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean? Why is it needed in the context of a grid application in an island? Which functionalities are required? What are the most important job roles, skills and competences?

Tune in on 17 November 2021 - 13:00h / 13:45 (CET) and register here Project ALBATTS. 

Carbery Housing Association CLG

Carbery Housing Association is a community based social housing developer and provider, approved by the Department of Housing. CHA purchases and leases properties to provide long term housing for rent for families who cannot afford to rent of buy on the open market. We secure local authority support and loan funding to develop these initiatives. We at present have 20 properties which are being rented to families nominated by the local Councils.

Clean Energy for EU Islands Online Forum

Due to the current health and travel situation, this year's edition of the Clean Energy for EU Islands Forum will be held online.

The programme will focus on creating stronger links between the EU institutions and the local actions on the island. Representatives from different institutions will introduce their role in creating the enabling framework for the decarbonisation of EU islands, and island communities will present and discuss their activities with peers and EU representatives. 


AquaBattery is a cleantech startup based in the Netherlands developing sustainable energy storage technologies.Our flagship product is the BlueBattery which can store energy in table saltwater. It is highly scalable, safe, and affordable. We are operating demonstration pilots for the BlueBattery and expect to reach a commercial-stage in two years.Another product that we have developed, which is market-ready, is the TerraBattery ( It is fully integrated energy storage systems which is environmentally friendly (100% recyclable), long-lived (min.
