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

Ea Energy Analyses is developing a series of analyzes of the Faroese electricity system for the Faroese power company SEV. The goal is to outline economic paths to reaching a power system supplied by renewables alone. Though the Faroe Islands have abundant energy resources within e.g. hydropower, wind power and tidal power, the challenge is how to balance such a relatively small electrical system. The analyzes are carried out with the Balmorel model.


The project is carried out from July to October 2017.
