The launch of the website of the project ‘IntegrAted SolutioNs for the DecarbOnization and Smartification of Islands’ — ‘IANOS’ will be later this month.


There are more than 2,700 island 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. However, most EU geographical islands are still characterised by specific energy-related challenges. The IANOS project contributes to solving these challenges.

IANOS selected the island of Ameland (Netherlands) and Terceira (Portugal) that will serve as “Pilot Islands” because they both represent common EU scenarios. After the initial phase, IANOS will implement the solutions on three “fellow Islands” to validate the replicability potential of the results of the test-island. The islands selected are; Lampedusa (Italy), Bora Bora (French Polynesia) and Nisyros (Greece).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement 957810.
