Sustainable island energy systems: a case study of Tilos Island, Greece

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


TILOS is a European project on the Greek island of Tilos that demonstrates the potential of local small-scale battery storage systems to integrate with renewable energy technologies, smart metering, and demand side measures. The successful implementation of the project has demonstrated the potential to decarbonize a small island. During the first year of operation, renewable energy accounted for over 50% of consumption. Success reflects the design and operation of the energy system and active participation of stakeholders, especially local residents, in what we consider to be a community energy project.
