Title: Renewable energy characterization of madeira island
Authors: Cristóvão Barreto , Morgado Dias , Sandy Abreu
Abstract: Energy presents itself in the XXI century as a necessity of ever-growing value. European community reports acknowledge the adverse economic effects of a fossil-fuel based economy, directing investment towards renewable energies. While Portugal has exceeded European goals in renewable energy penetration, Madeira’s development potential still has both a large growth margin and the added incentive of combating insularity by decreasing exterior energy importation. As such, this paper establishes a situation point of Madeira’s electrical energy production and renewable energy potential, serving as a solid base from which to assess future policies and investment.
