Pilot Overview

Pantelleria is a small volcanic island 110 km off the coast of Sicily with high potential for variable renewable energy production (VRE). The island’s own electricity grid is mainly powered by diesel generators, but due to its location in one of the windiest areas in Italy, offshore wind energy would be possible. 

Pilot Challanges

However, there are three sites of Community Importance:

  • a special protection area
  • a national park
  • an important bird area

The installation of the implants is restricted and the tourism sector might feel threatened due to landscape impacts.
