Samso Energy Academy is involved in several different EU energy projects. Here is a short review of our current projects. To learn more see EU Projects
BioMob is an EU project working with using biomass – such as straw, woodchips and waste – for energy use. The project partners are enterprizes, scientists and regional authorities in four different countries Bulgaria, Hungary, Ireland and Denmark.
Cradle to Cradle
Cradle to Cradle Islands (C2CI) is about lifecycle energy projects on islands. The leading vision is islands as innovation centres that implement sustainable and Cradle to Cradle solutions. The main goal is to develop innovative solution in the field of energy, water and materials, using Cradle to Cradle principles as a guide.
Enabling energy plans in Energy Cities and municipalities
The project includes the creation and updating of the municipal energy and climate balances and assistance to municipalities to draw up action plans on energy and climate issues.
The project aims to enhance the integration and the cooperation among three European insular regions Crete, Canary Islands and Samso by establishing a mutual learning process and collaborative relationships. The consortium, formed of 10 partners, targets the development of an inter-regional strategy for innovative measures.
The project is committed to developing Island Sustainable Energy Action Plans and a pipeline of bankable projects. The aim is to exceed the EU sustainability target 20-20-20. Meaning a 20% reduction of CO2 emissions and a 20% reduction in energy consumption by the year 2020.
The goal of the project is to support better information provision by tackling the main barriers that still exist today for taking up energy efficient behavior among consumers. Households will be approached and supported in choosing the most energy efficient products and learn about savings in the energy consumptions. The projects focus on four insular regions: Samsø, Iceland, Tenerife and Ios.
