Forerunner project of ISLANDER, ended in December 2018. It has deployed and demonstrated local energy storage technologies and developed smart technologies to exploit the synergies between energy storage, the smart grid and the citizens.
The EU-funded project INSULAE aims at helping European islands achieve full decarbonisation by moving towards RES-based energy systems. One of INSULAE main objectives is to develop an Investment Planning Tool that will be tested and validated by participating islands.
The GIFT project is developing multiple innovative solutions, such as a virtual power systems and energy management systems for harbours, factories, homes, better prediction of supply and demand and visualisation of those data through a GIS platform, and innovative storage systems allowing synergy between electrical, heating and transportation networks.
The aim of H2Watt is to promote technological development and knowledge transfer in the field of hydrogen economy in the North Sea region. A specific objective that applies to the island of Borkum is to generate green hydrogen for road, rail and maritime mobility.
The Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat was created to facilitate the clean energy transition on EU islands from the bottom up. The Secretariat is using the quadruple helix approach, helping citizens, local authorities, local businesses and academic institutions work together to advance the clean energy transition on their island.
BRIDGE is a European Commission initiative which unites Horizon 2020 Smart Grid, Energy Storage, Islands, and Digitalisation Projects to create a structured view of cross-cutting issues which are encountered in the demonstration projects and may constitute an obstacle to innovation.
REACT project seeks to achieve island energy independency by joining renewable energy sources and storage, a demand response platform and promote user engagement in a local energy community.
COMPILE project aims to activate and use local energy systems in order to support the fast growth of energy production from renewable energy sources (RES) in constrained networks and foster the transition from centralised system to flexible networks of active users.
