How can the Faroe Islands power system become 100% supplied by renewables?

Balmorel: Power system model | July 2017 - January 2018

On behalf of the Faroese power company SEV, the project undertook a number of analyses of the Faroese electricity system. The project outlined economic paths for reaching a power system supplied by renewables alone.

Though the Faroe Islands have abundant energy resources such as hydropower, wind power and tidal power, the challenge was how to balance such a relatively small electrical system. The analyses were carried out with the Balmorel model.

The project ran from July to January 2018.
