Abstract:Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and pioneer Green Hydrogen technologies present great potential in the Greek Islands when it comes to eliminating the dependence on fossil fuels. The main target of this Master Thesis Project was to examine the feasibility of setting up a Sustainable Energy Planning in the Greek Islands, which focuses on Green Hydrogen development. Based on the current conditions within the Greek islands, an analysis on the potential extensive integration of RES and the utilization of Green Hydrogen as an ideal sustainable energy carrier for the future economy of the Greek islands was conducted. The capacity of the Greek islands to support this kind of technologies was further elaborated, by highlighting the remarkable solar and wind energy dynamic of the islands in general, and specifically for the island of Crete, that was selected as the case study unit. Finally, the potential challenges that might occur along the way were further explained and relative recommendations were provided. The findings indicate that the Greek Islands present great RES potential. This privilege can be further “exploited”, and combined with the development of green hydrogen production and storage technologies can help the Greek Islands follow the energy transition.
