Methodology

The proposed research project is organized in discrete Work Packages (WP), as follows:

Determination of the current status and future trends concerning energy and water demand of the small and medium size non-interconnected Aegean islands
Comprehensive study of the local RES potential and energy-based environmental impacts
State-of-the-art RES-based hybrid solutions for the satisfaction of energy and water demand in the small and medium size non-interconnected Aegean islands
Development of an integrated planning tool for the satisfaction of energy and water needs in island regions using RES-based hybrid configurations
Upgrade of a small scale pilot station for the experimental simulation of RES-based hybrid and desalination systems
Application of the integrated planning tool to representative island case studies
Synthesis and configuration of an integrated plan for the satisfaction of energy and water demand in small and medium size Aegean island regions
Project management and dissemination
