INESC TEC’s Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES) was selected by the Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat (Clean Energy Secretariat) to represent the Atlantic region in the European initiative and promote the energy transition in those islands. The vast experience and knowledge of CPES, namely on the integration of renewable energy sources in islands’ networks, the development of technical operating requirements for production facilities (grid code), the assurance of security in the energy supply of said networks and the energy storage solutions – associated with the development of several projects in the Azores, Madeira and Cape Verde – were decisive aspects to INESC TEC’s selection as a partner of the consortium. The CPES will act as the point of contact between the Clean Energy Secretariat and the Portuguese islands, as well as a consultant for the group, providing technical, regulatory, and legal support to initiatives and projects that seek to promote the integration of renewable energy sources in the regions’ power grids. More specifically, INESC TEC will participate in periodic meetings with relevant stakeholders, workshops, webinars, and meetings of the Advisory Council, working together with several European entities of the energy sector.
