Islands Energy Transition Experience in H2020 Projects

A series of webinars focused on the clean energy transition on islands will be held in course of September, grouping sister projects that are being funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, in four separate events.




The projects involved are:

  • GIFT - Geographical island flexibility, GA n°824410
  • IANOS - Integrated solutions for decarbonisation and smartification of islands, GA n°957810
  • INSULAE - Maximizing the impact of innovative energy approaches in the EU islands, GA n°824433
  • ISLANDER - Accelerating the decarbonisation of islands’ energy systems, GA n°957669
  • MAESHA - Demonstration of smart and flexible solutions for a decarbonised energy future in Mayotte and other European islands, GA n°957843
  • REACT - Renewable energy for self-sustainable island communities, GA n°824395
  • ROBINSON - Smart integration of local energy sources and innovative storage for flexible, secure and cost-efficient energy supply on industrialized islands, GA n°957752
  • SMILE - Smart island energy system, GA n°731249


The events aim to present the point of view of the principal H2020 funded projects in the framework of clean energy transition on islands, thus consolidating their collaborative approaches, meditating towards new perspectives and exploring the potential for synergies. Hence, this workshop will involve projects with more than 160 partners from all over Europe and approximately 80 million of Euros of funding.
