Smart Fossil Free Island

 

Currently in course in Porto Santo, in the context of mitigation of carbon emissions and climate change, is the implementation phase of a strategy to reduce the use of fossil fuels, called "Smart Fossil Free Island", catalysed by the Regional Government of Madeira, the Electricity Company of Madeira and AREAM, which aim to replace fossil energy sources with renewable energy. This strategy includes the gradual conversion of electricity production to renewable sources, providing the electrical system with smart grids and energy storage capacity to adjust the availability of intermittent resources to demand, as well as the transition to electric mobility and energy efficiency in buildings, street lighting and other uses. Electric mobility with intelligent charge, preferably at night, also has the advantage of being able to contribute to the increase in capacity of the grid to receive energy from intermittent renewable sources in periods of lower demand.
