Increasing renewable energy sources in island energy supply : case study Porto

  title={Increasing renewable energy sources in island energy supply : case study Porto},
  author={Santo and Neven Dui{\'c} and Maria da Graça Carvalho},
While the energy supply of most islands depends mainly on expensive oil derivatives’ importation, the others are linked by usually a weak electricity grid connection to the mainland. Due to high energy costs the islands are proving to be excellent test beds for the introduction of new technologies, and some islands are trying to become so-called renewable islands, to satisfy their energy demand mainly or entirely from indigenous and renewable sources, thus increasing the security of supply, and… CONTINUE READING
