The award is part of the path that Marvivo has been following since 2008 with the creation of three international idea competitions to promote innovative projects.
It ended with the prize of the islands. Bornholm in Denmark, Tilos in Greece, Aran in Ireland, Kanna in Scotland, Samso in Denmark and Palawan in the Philippines, 2021 edition International Prize “Sun, Wind and Sea: Renewable Energy in the Small Islands and Marine Protected Areas in the Ecological Transition” marevivo, sponsored by the Ministry of Ecological Transition and ANCIM . with the support of– National Association of Municipalities of the Minor Islands and Salina EU Pilot Island 2019.
The award is part of the EU’s “Salina Isola Pilot 2019” initiative for the energy transition, a program through which the European Secretariat “Clean Energy for the EU Islands” promotes the energy transition in smaller islands by 2030, a comprehensive package is part of. Clean energy for all European citizens” and is it a side event of? all4climate italy 2021 who collects all Program dedicated to the fight against climate change Which will happen in Italy this year.
Rewards are part of the project’s path “Sun, Wind and Sea for the Italian Small Islands: Renewable Energy and the Landscape”. marevivo Running since 2008 with the organization of three international idea competitions To promote and reward innovative energy generation projects from renewable sources and other sustainable technologies for small islands and marine protected areas.
The goal is to select exemplary projects that represent an exemplary best practice and that can encourage a programmatic approach, involving and sensitizing island communities in energy plan options. One of the main features is that Recognize the strategic role of island regions towards sustainability May pass more easily if you share other successful experiences.
Another element in support of a circular economy is the new instrument. green plasma Company IRIS srl which produces clean electricity by using waste as a source with a view to develop a circular economy.

NS Award A For the best sustainable energy system in which a strong integration of renewable energy sources with respect to the ecosystem is achieved and the socio-economic development of the region goes equally to the island Bornholm in Denmark and Tilos Island in Greece.
NS Award B For the best sustainable energy system with a special focus on respect for the environment and landscape, the island Samso in Danimarka.
NS ANCIM Awards (National Association of Municipalities of the Minor Islands) was awarded to Aran in Ireland As the best energy system that emphasizes the vital role of resident communities in the formulation of local sustainable development plans with the participation of resident communities.

a special award This has been attributed to the very small local communities of the islands. Kanna in Scotland and Palawan in the Philippines.
“Marevivo has been dealing with the energy transition since 2008 as the ocean with its water warming and acidification is the first victim of climate change, it represents the great regulator of our planet’s climate and if we do not intervene quickly Will not now be able to fulfill his role. – dice Rosalba Giugnik, President of marevivo – There is no doubt that the road map before us is to develop an increasingly broad network of clean and renewable energy generation as quickly as possible, involving communities of men and women who know that this is the only potential is the future. The Marevivo project continues in this direction and supports the Salina Isola Pilota 2019 route by enhancing islands that have already managed to transform and that can represent energy integration solutions to be emulated. – continues Rosalba Giugni – In addition, the economy comforts us, the ninth report of Irena (International Renewable Energy Agency) tells us that it is now cheaper to produce energy from renewable sources than fossil fuels, which, in addition to pollution, have costs to deal with. Raw material and power plant management problem that renewable energy sources do not have“
“In selection work for the award “Sol Vento e Mare” – watches Livio de Santoli, Chairman of the Selection Committee, Vice Rector of the University of Rome “La Sapienza” – It emerged as a clear fact that the geographical location and size of the islands were not the deciding elements in the planning and implementation process of the projects, but rather the willingness and sensitivity to play a fundamental role in the long-term investment for the common good and the participation of local communities. It is essential that the fundamental concept of sustainability, i.e. integrated transdisciplinary one, in the context of the future of energy, should consider energy, environment, economy and society by comparing the topics affected by change.“
“vAlorizing the islands taking into account their territorial characteristics is also a strategic objective of the Italian government’s action. We recall the investments and actions initiated in this sense within the National Recovery and Resilience Plan – he comments Laura D’April, Head of the Department of Ecological Transition and Green Investment in the Ministry of Ecological Transition – In fact, a specific program has been envisaged that aims to promote the sustainability of the islands as all-round green islands, complementing and complementing aspects related to energy, waste management, water service and mobility.“
