El Hierro island goes 100% renewable

El Hierro, one of the Canary Islands, is now satisfying 100 % of its energy needs with renewable energy, becoming the first isolated region on the planet to achieve this according to Energy Live News. E4tech made its own contribution to this amazing result between 2004 and 2007 when we, as part of the European Commission’s FP5-funded 100%RES-EL HIERRO project, identified relevant biomass conversion chains and local biomass resources. E4tech is very pleased to see El Hierro has reached its objective of becoming 100% RES (Renewable Energy Supported)!
