There are more than 2,700 islands all over Europe and each island plays an important role in the transition away from fossil fuels towards a cleaner energy. Each island has its own conditions, depending on its geographic location, (political) regulations, and infrastructure and each island has its own specific energy-related challenges. The IANOS project contributes to solving these challenges.
IANOS selected the islands of Ameland (Netherlands) and Terceira (Portugal) to serve as “Pilot Islands” because they both represent common EU challenges. After the initial phase, IANOS will implement the solutions on three “fellow Islands” to validate the replicability potential of the results of the test islands. The fellow islands selected are: Lampedusa (Italy), Bora Bora (French Polynesia) and Nisyros (Greece).
We would like to keep you informed about our IntegrAted SolutioNs for DecarbOnisation and Smartification of Islands.

IANOS focuses on maximum provision and utilisation of flexibility and self-sufficiency through the use of distributed renewable energy and storage technologies. IANOS streamlines the decision-making process towards tailor-made solutions taking into account the specific conditions of islands through the Island Energy Planning and Transition Suite and artificial intelligence based virtual power plant. In this way, IANOS will demonstrate a rich portfolio of solutions towards full decarbonisation, increasing the share of renewable energy sources in the energy mix and exploiting the resources of islands, including geothermal, wind, tidal and solar energy.
