Energy prices on islands are typically higher than on the mainlands. This is why the decarbonisation of energy systems in islands makes sense.
INSULAE project aims to help islands find locally produced, sustainable and low-cost sources of energy. They will develop interventions linked to seven replicable use cases at three Lighthouse Islands (in Croatia, Denmark and Portugal). The goal is to demonstrate their capability to evolve RES-based systems up to 70 % cheaper than diesel. To assist Europe’s policymakers, the project will design an investment planning tool to be displayed at four Follower Islands in Germany, Greece, Spain and the Netherlands Antilles for the improvement of related action plans.
