In this report, we present the specification and assessment of Task 8.1: Establishing reference energy simulation models for the three Pilots, which is in the scope of the SMILE project work package (WP) 8. The Smart Island Energy System (SMILE) combines a number of partners to investigate the project pilot islands Samsø in Denmark, Orkney in the United Kingdom and Madeira in Portugal.
The three pilot islands Samsø, Orkney and Madeira are all investigating ways of becoming carbon neutral, though local conditions differ widely. While the Orkney Isles and Samsø are connected to the rest of Denmark and the United Kingdom respectively, Madeira is an isolated stand-alone system. Samsø and the Orkney Isles also both have significant heat demands, while Madeira has a warmer climate. In terms of population, they range from Samsø with 3,700 inhabitants via Orkney with approx. 21,000 inhabitants to Madeira with about 250,000 inhabitants, influencing demands and available resources. All islands present a unconventional energy system shaped by its surroundings; Samsø has been undergoing a decade-long transition after winning an energy island competition, the Orkney Isles are characterised by a large number of wind turbines and offshore testing facilities, and Madeira lies far off the European continent and stands out in European terms with great solar potential. These islands are therefore sites with good potentials for renewable energy production, which is addressed within the SMILE project.
