Green Energy for Islands

Posts in category Uncategorized


Green ENERGy for ISlands (GENERGIS) studied and reported paths towards the renewable energy autonomy of Skyros island in Greece.

The goals of the project were to:

(1) address the energy autonomy of the island, including energy storage systems,
(2) involve the people of the community in the decision-making process,
(3) perform detailed technical calculations through simulations, as well as exhaustive economic and environmental analyses,
(4) propose a concrete energy plan for achieving 100% sustainable living,
(5) create the first guide on sustainable development based on social, environmental and economic data.

GENERGIS was supported by the Programme FP7 of the European Union with a duration of 24 months (Start: May 2013, Finalization: April 2015).
The project was conducted by the post-doctoral researcher Fontina Petrakopoulou with the support of Prof. Maria Loizidou of the National Technical University of Greece (NTUA).
