How can islands be powerful drivers of Europe’s clean energy transition? Find out by joining the Clean energy for EU islands secretariat and the EU Island facility -NESOI with the participation of local authorities and EU decision-makers.
Based on the NESOI survey conducted last year, the NESOI partners produced a report outlining the critical technologies for energy transition on islands.
Every week the EU Island Facility NESOI will be sharing short summaries of the selected projects from the first open call.
So far six project briefs have been published, see the links below:
On 20-21 May 2021, the first forum of Phase II of the Clean energy for EU islands secretariat presented practical steps towards the decarbonisation of EU islands and showcased ongoing and completed clean energy projects on islands.
The event was a great success with around 270 participants and more than 50 speakers. Kadri Simson, European Commissioner for Energy, held an intriguing opening speech on the first day.
The EU Islands Facility NESOI, with the objective of facilitating the energy transition in islands, has confirmed support for 28 innovative clean energy projects which, combined, are expected to avoid around 300 kilotonnes of CO2 per year and generate close to 1 billion euros in investments.
Alessandra Montanelli from Sinloc presented NESOI at the webinar Climate change adaptation on European islands on the 29th of April.
