Rural sustainable development through integration of renewable energy technologies in poor European regions

Objective

The ultimate goal of the present project is to study the implementation of innovative low cost Renewable Energy and Energy Saving Technologies at selected poor regions of the participating countries. Locally available Energy Resources will be used, with a final goal the regional sustainable socio-economic development. Pathways will be invented for maximising Renewable Energy penetration in the region. Ideally, 100 % renewable energy penetration will be pursued for. Through the project, specific Integrated R enewable Energy Systems (1RES) will be proposed for sustainable development of each Region. By the term 1RES it is meant "o« energy system with an optimal energetic autonomy including food production and if any excesses, energy exports. Energy production a nd consumption at the region has to be sustainable and eventually based mainly on renewable energy sources. It includes a combination of different possibilities for non-polluting energy production, such as modern wind and solar electricity production, as w ell as the production of energy from biomass and any other renewable sources ". Each partner team (in each of the participating countries) will select a pilot rural region and perform the following tasks: 1. Study the today Energy situation in the region ? Study the sources of energy. ? Consumption by sector. Space and time distribution of the consumption. 2. Study the local Energy Potential. Space and time distribution. 3. Define development scenarios of the region. 4. Develop a prototype model (expert sys tem) for introducing in the regions the 1RES s. 5. Propose specific IRESs and development policy to be applied in the region through the developed model (expert system). 6. Socio-Economie and Environmental considerations. 7. Dissemination activities The re sults of the studies for each region will supply the local governments the plans for region sustainable development. The overall project results will provide #
