Project details



Renewable Energy for self-sustAinable island CommuniTies

Start date: 01.01.2019

Duration: 54 months

Coordinator: VEOLIA

Budget: 8.97 M€


REACT will demonstrate the potential of large-scale deployment of RES and storage assets on geographical islands to bring economic benefits, contribute to the decarbonisation of local energy systems, reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and improve air quality.

To do so, REACT will deliver a scalable and adaptable cloud-based ICT platform for RES and storage enabled infrastructures, supporting a holistic cooperative energy management strategy at the community level. REACT will combine an optimal control of community owned energy assets, both conventional and renewable, with cooperative demand response (DR) actions, both explicit and implicit, to maximally exploit the flexibility of energy demand.

List of achievements

Pilots & Follower Islands
Project activities are being deployed and validated at three pilot islands with different climates, energy infrastructures, grid requirements, and market contexts.
Large-scale replication plans to measure the project’s socio-economic benefits are being developed for five follower islands.
