El Hierro - #Canaries archipelago, Spain- to become world's first #energy self-sufficient #island

With the approval of Plan de Sostenibilidad de El Hierro (El Hierro Sustainability Plan), the island started a complete reorganization of the island’s energy production concept. Most of the energy would come from a hydro-wind power station. A wind farm would produce the energy and a system of two connected water reservoirs would be the power storage battery (or accumulator) and would provide a supplementary source of energy. This wind-water system should produce up to 80% of the island’s energy requirements. The sun, through the solar farms, should provide the rest.
