Clean energy for EU islands





How does the Isle of Wight valorise the potential of its seaweeds (energy, cosmetics, agri-food)?

Seaweeds are often a major issue for islands.

Indeed, a number of beaches regularly suffer from deep drifts of seaweed in harbours and along the shore, invading the shores and causing smell nuisances.

This is a specific topic ICE project has been working on with the Isle of Wight, for two years now, in order to characterise these cast seaweeds and see how we could evaluate its potential as a valuable ressource.

Clean energy for EU islands forum 2022

Join this year’s #CE4EUIslands Forum – the 2-day event takes place on Rhodes, Greece. “From clean energy vision to clean energy action” is the motto of the Clean energy forum 2022. Be part of the knowledge hub on the EU clean energy transition on islands and meet the #CE4EUislands community.

Get insights into practical steps towards the decarbonisation of EU islands and learn more about ongoing and completed clean energy projects on islands.

Island Finance Forum 2022 Investment for Sustainable Development

The Island Finance Forum brings together senior financiers, development partners and regulators to share and exchange expertise on sustainable and inclusive financial structures in island communities. The Forum aims to highlight the unique financial challenges faced by global island communities and the solutions for sustainable economic recovery and inclusive growth in a post-pandemic world. The Island Finance Forum will:

Learn more about the Islands secretariat Technical Assistance: Relevant examples from Round 1 and announcement of Round 2

Join this webinar to learn how the Clean energy for EU islands secretariat provides technical support to help island communities advance in their energy transition. The webinar will start with inspiring, concrete results from the first round of technical assistance, for example: road transport electrification in Greek islands, funding and financing seminars tailored to energy projects, stakeholder inclusion, and modelling of energy systems to analyse how storage and wind and solar may affect the island’s electricity grid.


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.

Webinar: Policy and regulation for the island's energy transition

Take part in our sneak preview webinar where we would like to present the publicly available Regulatory Inventory on policy and regulations specifically developed for EU islands. The Clean energy for EU islands Regulatory Inventory will be a publicly accessible online database that includes the national legislation, regulation, and policy framework for the support of clean energy technologies, projects, and initiatives. It will be accessible through the EU island secretariat’s website.

GKinetic Energy Ltd

GKinetic are leading developers of innovative, patented turbines that work with nature to generate 100% clean, predictable energy from free-flowing water. We offer a clean, sustainable alternative to diesel generators and unlike competing hydrokinetic devices, our turbine works at average, lower flow speeds. GKinetic’s technology is ideally suited to island applications. The device is floating and can be moored like a boat. Due to its innovative design, it does not require blocking flows or major civil works. It can be deployed in sites as shallow as 1.8m.
