Conference - Clean Energy in European Islands - 2018


Start time: Tuesday 08:00 (24 April)
End time: Tuesday 18:00 (24 April)


Objectives and Scope of the Conference

European islands are a very special and interesting part of Europe with their own identity, culture, landscape and development; however also with increased infrastructure requirements due to their remote character and distance from the mainland.

There is a continuously growing interest and focus of the EU and national governments to investigate and identify the most efficient and effective methods, tools and technologies in order to make the transition towards Clean Energy in the European islands. The transition to clean energy will result in reduced energy costs using the latest technologies, better energy security for islands, improved air quality, lower greenhouse gas emissions, less impact on islands' natural environment as well as in the creation of new jobs and business opportunities, boosting islands' economic self-sufficiency.

In this context and taking into account that Greece is an EU country with a very high number of populated islands, Piraeus University of Applied Science organises the (first) CLEAN ENERGY IN EUROPEAN ISLANDS Conference (April 24, 2018) that intends to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and expand the discussion on the clean energy projects implementation in European islands to a wider audience including researchers, practitioners, politicians and – mainly – European island stakeholders for the optimal transition in clean energy for the benefit of the island communities.

The event will be held in Athens, Greece in the premises of Piraeus University of Applied Science (PUAS), on April 24, 2018. The event is organised by the Soft Energy Applications and Environmental Protection Laboratory of PUAS ( along with SAPIENZA, CRES, UNIZAG and CEA, all partners of PRISMI –INTEREG Project (

All Conference delegates are invited to attend the Experts’ Workshop that will be held in PUAS on April 23, 2018 related to the Clean Energy prospect in the Greek Islands. There is no fee incurred for the attendance of both events.
