SPEEDING UP RENEWABLES IN EUROPEAN & ATLANTIC ISLANDS
Decarbonization is key to limit the worst effects of climate change, which hits islands harder, but it’s not only an environmental matter. It is about financials and security. In most cases, islands have to import diesel to run their power generators, incurring very high costs and exposing to supply risk.Renewables are already much cheaper compared to diesel and they can produce power directly on the island. Thus, not only renewables allow islands to save huge financial resources, but can also help them achieve energy security while decarbonizing and create significant synergies among sectors. However, deploying the most efficient technologies in the various sectors of the islands’ economy requires appropriate regulatory frameworks that enable their use. Today, regulations for energy supply on islands are obsolete and biased in favour of fossil fuels.
In this workshop, the Italian “Minor Islands” Decree will be presented in details alongside other policies to promote renewables on islands from energy authorities of Greece and Spain to explore their potential for replication in all European islands and beyond.
