The Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat

Supporting islands in their clean energy transition

The Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat was created by the European Commission to facilitate the clean energy transition on EU islands from the bottom up. It is built on the vision that in order to assure the best environment for change and to benefit all members of the island communities, balanced collaboration between public and private stakeholders is essential. For this reason, the Secretariat is using the quadruple helix approach, helping citizens, local authorities, local businesses and academic institutions work together to advance the clean energy transition on their islands.

Climate Alliance coordinates the consortium that currently constitutes the EU Islands Secretariat. The other consortium partners are 3E and, with technical support from the University of the Balearic Islands, the Technical Educational Institute of Crete and the Aeroe Energy and Environment Office.

Project funding period: June 2018 – June 2020
via the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy
