  1. MIT-PortugalGreen IslandProject Paulo Ferrao Stephen R. Connors David Marks

  2. Example: São Miguel and Flores • São Miguel and Flores • Two very different islands: population, economy, energy demand, current power system, renewable resources • Long-Term Transform- action of ALL Energy Supplies and Demands

  3. What do Energy Clients want ?

  4. New Air Conditioners,Ponta Delgada 2020 2030 2040 What are the Long-Term Paths? • What is there in the market ? • What, when, where and how (& how much)? • How to achieve “substantial and sustained reductions” in fuels, emissions, costs? Electricity Mix - Azores (EDA)

  5. Balancing Supply & Demand • Opportunity for ESD: • Technological • Social • Economic Renewable energy

  6. Transforming Energy Systems • Recommendations for Energy Importing Regionsto simultaneously meet Climate Changeand Energy Security goals… • Aggressive End-Use Efficiency • Requires a detailed understanding of energy use patterns, to deploy “energy efficiency.” • Diversify Domestically • Requires a detailed understanding of the size, temporal and spatial variability of energy sources and sinks. • Modernize Energy Networks • Requires a detailed understanding of the above and network thresholds and important infrastructure “nodes and modes” including energy storage. …but we need new models to design these complex Systems

  7. Aggregate Planning Models Aggregate Economic- Policy Models Detailed Technology Models New Challenges for ESD • Looking at Energy Supply and Demand in Time and Space Sustainable Energy Systems for Implementation

  8. Partnering for Green Islands A Diverse Project Looking for Partners • UnderstandingtheIslands’EnergyNeedsandSupplies • Understandingenergyinspaceandtime • Developing a fullunderstanding of local resources • Developing New Ideas for FutureIslands’ EconomicandEnergyNeedsandOptions • Future electricitysupplies, inlcudingenergystorage • Exploringnewtransportationoptions,includingelectricity • Lookingatways to reduceenergy use, includinginnovationsinbuildingsandconstruction • Partnering to Realize this New EnergyEconomy for theAzores • Developnewinnovativedemonstrationandpilotprojectsthatputtheseplansintopractice
