ROBINSON project launched to decarbonise islands

The Horizon 2020 project ROBINSON has been launched to help the decarbonisation of islands in a variety of ways, such as through the use of hydrogen-related technologies.

Formed of 18 partners, the consortium will work together to develop and deploy an integrated, smart and cost-efficient energy system coupling thermal and electrical networks, which will optimise the utilisation of local renewable energy sources.

The system will be demonstrated on the island of Eigerøy (Norway) and lab-scale level replication studies will be conducted for the island of Crete (Greece) and the Western Isles (Scotland).

Further replicability in other European islands and remote areas will be guaranteed by the modularity of the Energy Management System (EMS) that will be developed throughout the project.
