Position paper - Clean energy for EU Islands
EUGINE welcomes the ‘Clean Energy for EU Islands’ initiative aiming at modernising the energy supply of the more than 2200 inhabited EU islands.
EUGINE shares the European Commission’s view that “islands have the potential to be natural winners and leaders in demonstrating new technologies and innovative solutions to achieving the clean energy transition”.
Engine power plants are the standard solution for supplying islands with stable electricity – specific new features and innovations are available to support islands in the modernisation of their energy system.
proposals aiming at further developing the various types of renewable energies and at meeting the EU targets through a consistent governance. This position paper provides both a critical assessment and possible amendments improving these proposals.
