The pilot Islands

The Smart Islands Energy Systems (SMILE) project will implement three large-scale pilot projects in different regions of Europe with similar topographic characteristics but different policies, challenges, regulations and energy markets. This enables the project to develop and optimize new innovations in different environments, thereby allowing optimal testing and flatten the path towards wide market introduction.
