How can the Faroe Islands power system become 100% renewable?

On behalf of the Faroese power company SEV, the project undertook a number of analyses of the Faroese electricity system. The project outlined economic paths for reaching a power system supplied by renewables alone. Though the Faroe Islands have abundant energy resources e.g. hydropower, wind power and tidal power, the challenge was how to balance such a relatively small electrical system. The analyses were carried out with the Balmorel model.


The project ran from July to October 2017.
