It's been named the best energy island project as well as the citizens' choice, winning two EU Sustainable Energy Awards. The prizes recognise outstanding innovation in energy efficiency and renewables.
The project's goal is to set Tilos (Greece) to be the first island in the Mediterranean powered solely by renewable energy. It plans to install a wind turbine and solar panels around the island and develop a battery to store the excess of the energy produced. If successful, Tilos could not only become energy self-sufficient, but also sell power to its neighbours.
