Project News

We are opening a new section on our website that will host all brochures with detailed information about the projects of NESOI. They have been created after hours of consultations and interviews with the beneficiaries that have also led to the identification of potetial areas for coaching.

This section will be constantly updated, so do not forget to visit it regularly! Here:

Andrea Martinez, our project coordinator and partner from Sinloc, moderated the Roundtable dedicated to "Environmental Dimension: Energy Transition and Climate Change" at the Island Commission of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions of Europe. This organisation covers 19 island authorities in the Mediterranean and Baltic seas and Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans, which means an estimated population of 15 million inhabitants.

The Covenant of Mayors is a European initiative that was launched in 2008 by the European Commission with the aim of gathering local governments to implement actions that lead to the achievement of the EU climate and energy targets. At the present, this initiative brings together more than 9000 local and regional governements accross 57 countries, which allows a multi-level model of cooperation.

The Second call for proposals closed last 28 January 2022 with 49 submitted applications that involved 54 European islands in 14 countries. The participating consortia are very varied, there is a good representation of public and private members and mixed, which will make the evaluation process very enriching. Some of the specific domains of action are: Hydrogen, electric boats, geothermal energy and constribution to the energy transition agenda of the islands.

NESOI team is proud to present a new round of project briefs from the first call for proposals!

Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Croatia, Greece, Italy and The Netherlands are the countries showcased in this group, where interesting projects related to energy transition are being developed.

BATEEIRO is a project in Illa de Arousa (Spain) that aims to decarbonise the fishing sector, which is the main economic activity of the island by fostering the electrification of the fishing boats.
