During COP28 Island Innovation plans to create an “Island Voices” space where we will share key insights and developments related to remote, rural and island communities. Island Innovation wants to ensure that your communities are represented and that relevant information is made available to you. Given that 20% of UN member states are part of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), we expect there to be a number of conversations relating to islands.
One challenge of island grids and micro-grids is to maintain the balance between production and consumption. Diesel generators are still frequently used for this task. Due to the unavoidable dependence on fuel price and delivery options, and the environmental impact, alternatives are being sought. Wind and solar power are independent of imported fuels and environmentally friendly, and therefore the logical choice for island and micro-grids.
Στις 24 Μαΐου, η γραμματεία της πρωτοβουλίας "Καθαρή ενέργεια για τα νησιά της ΕΕ" διοργανώνει τη δεύτερη συνάντηση της Ενεργειακής Ακαδημίας με επίκεντρο την Κύπρο.
Μετά την πρώτη μας διαδικτυακή συνάντηση τον περασμένο Ιούνιο, αυτή τη φορά θα συναντηθούμε στη Λευκωσία για να συνεχίσουμε το έργο μας με στόχο την υποστήριξη της μετάβασης του νησιού στην καθαρή ενέργεια.
In this first Green Hysland workshop, like-minded European projects and partners are invited in order to show participants how green hydrogen can increase the penetration of renewable energy in a specific region, demonstrating sector coupling and sectorial integration, and moving towards full decarbonization of the economy.
De 28 a 29 de abril, o secretariado para a energia limpa para as ilhas da UE organiza a Academia de Energia destinada às ilhas portuguesas.

On March 17-18, the Clean energy for EU islands secretariat organises the Energy Academy focusing on Greek islands.
The secretariat team aims to help islanders to select, evaluate, execute, and communicate about energy transition projects through a series of Energy Academy sessions.
The event will be held in Greek without translation.
The event will take place in Crete, Greece. The event is planned as a physical workshop.
This workshop and matchmaking event is jointly organised by the H2020 Smart Islands Energy Systems (SMILE) project partners and the Enterprise Europe Network and supported by the Clean energy for EU islands secretariat.
Energynautics GmbH organises its 5th Hybrid Power Systems Workshop virtually on 18. and 19. May 2021.
The main objective of the 5th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop is to discuss the challenges that arise with the integration of high shares of renewables (wind, solar, hydro) into isolated/island power systems/micro-grids in combination with batteries/flywheels and conventional power generators. Finding viable combinations of conventional and renewable energy is one key solution for the efficient and sustainable running of these types of power systems.
In the context of the Clean energy for EU islands Online Forum, the University of the Balearic islands organised a transition coordination meeting with Spanish islands on 28 October 2020.
In the context of the Clean Energy for EU Islands Online Forum, the transition team of A Illa de Arousa organised a local transition meeting with the island community on 27 October.
