Abstract

The development of renewable energy technologies in an optimum way combined with energy efficiency technologies is investigated in the Greek island Ios. The energy consumption of the building and the transport sectors in the medium term have been estimated for a baseline and a sustainable future scenario. The transformation of the oil based transport to electricity powered one has been performed. Investigation on potential renewable energy systems based on solar and wind technologies and possible ways of their arrangement has been carried out. It is concluded that a viable combination of distributed and centralized RES systems with appropriate storage facilities constitutes the optimum solution. Ios island could then act as an exemplar of sustainable development for similar initiatives in other islands of the Mediterranean.
