Off-Grid Islands

The off-grid islands offer a different perspective and are well-placed to demonstrate the opportunities of low-carbon technologies. There are already several excellent decarbonising focused projects completed or underway within these communities and all the off-grid islands were part of the Clean Energy for EU Islands Initiative. 

These ‘Off-Grid’ communities include the Isles of Eigg, Canna, Muck, Rum (known as the Small Isles), and Fair Isle and Foula, both off the coast of Shetland. 

CNI will be offering these communities support in the following areas:

Current Progress

At this moment initial conversations are taking place between CES and representatives from the Off-Grid communities. We look forward to sharing more details on their involvement with the project in the near future.
