IENE Participated in the "3rd European Forum on Clean Energy for Islands"Following an invitation from Greece’s Regulatory Authority for Energy (RAE), IENE through its researcher Alexandros Perellis participated actively in “3rd European Forum on Clean Energy for Islands”, held on 3 – 4 October, at Rodos Palace Hotel in Rhodes with a presentation on “Islands energy needs and how to guarantee project success”.

Following an invitation from Greece’s Regulatory Authority for Energy (RAE), IENE through its researcher Alexandros Perellis participated actively in "3rd European Forum on Clean Energy for Islands”, held on 3 – 4 October, at Rodos Palace Hotel in Rhodes with a presentation on "Islands energy needs and how to guarantee project success”. The forum was jointly organized by the Regulatory Authority for Energy of Greece and the Commission De Regulaton De L’energie of France.

In his presentation, Mr. Perellis highlighted the problem of high dependence on oil for Greek non-interconnected islands and therefore the very expensive electricity generation costs and large CO2 emissions of the autonomous island systems. He then presented the case of Kastellorizo island, which was examined in a most recent study undertaken by IENE, entitled, "Energy Transition of the Island of Kastellorizo”. The above study presents the preliminary design of a large-scale stand-alone microgrid system powered by Solar PV, wind turbines and li-ion battery-based electricity storage systems aiming to substitute the current oil-based energy system. The design is tailor made for both the RES potential of the area and the annual energy needs of the island of Kastellorizo, as forecasted for 2025. The presentation included the RES and storage system design methodology and performance assessment, while system optimization techniques, technical recommendations and topology suggestions for the installation of the system were also presented. The presentation followed with the economic assessment of the investment, which was estimated to be very attractive, reducing significantly the full annual local electricity system’s costs and concluded with a summary of the main points of the study.

The Forum hosted numerous prominent professionals from Greece, France, Spain and Portugal, who presented their work, associated with Island projects, in four workshops. More specifically, the Forum’s content spanned from regulatory aspects, infrastructure development and innovation to island energy needs and financing of energy transition in European Islands.
