Leading islands and remote communities, from the deserts of Australia to the isles of the United Kingdom, have already transitioned from 100% oil-based electricity systems to ones with significant renewable penetration.
This casebook profiles ten islands and remote communities actively embracing this transition in order to provide examples for other communities looking to make the switch away from oil to efficiency and renewables. Among the ten locations, the casebook identifies several similar drivers of change, including electricity costs, environmental considerations, and abundant local resources. The ten locations also experienced similar challenges, including maintaining grid stability, installing new systems in remote locations, and handling administrative and bureaucratic requirements. The casebook also includes additional information about each of the locations, and their transitions over time to incorporating higher amounts of energy efficiency, renewable energy, and energy storage.
The ten cases presented in the casebook provide useful insights and lessons learned for energy communities aiming to establish or manage micro grids.
A guide that presents different options in which municipalities may be able to adapt their public procurement processes to better support energy communities.
A guide that identifies and shortlists practical examples of digital solutions for energy communities in different scopes of application.
