The focus on the reduction of emissions and the transition away from fossil fuels has been growing, especially in recent years. This is of the utmost importance on islands where the impacts of climate change are most threatening and where the main source of energy has been found to come from the burning of fossil fuels. Thus, the feasibility of implementing a distributed renewable energy system has been investigated for a set of islands off the coast of the UK. Three systems and their technical and economic feasibility were analysed using a software designed in Excel with one system having net zero emissions.
