Project Overview 

GIFT is an innovative project that aims to decarbonise the energy mix of European islands. European islands have to abide by the law of their countries that push toward a greener energy mix to comply with the European and international agreements. GIFT is willing to develop innovative systems to allow islands to integrate vast amount of renewables.

Through the development of multiple innovative solutions, such as a virtual power system, 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. 

GIFT will increase the penetration rate of renewable energy sources into the islands’ grid, reducing their needs for diesel generation and thus decreasing the greenhouse gases emissions directly related to it.

During 4 years, the partners will develop and demonstrate the solutions in two lighthouse islands, in Hinnøya, Norway’s largest island and the small island of Procida in Italy and study the replicability of the solution in a Greek and Italian islands at the minimum, respectively Evia and Favignana.

European islands embark on clean energy transition

Islands face some specific challenges in decarbonising their energy systems and economies but also opportunities. They are often highly dependent on imported fossil fuels which are consequently costly, but they also have abundant wind and solar resources and can take...
