Islands Research
The Islands Research Lab (islandslaboratory.com) studies innovative solutions for energy generation and demand on islands, resource nexus, integration of renewable technologies, IoT technology and smart grids, together with adequate business models, regulations and policies. It provides an understanding and awareness about current experiences and future sustainable solutions for islands nations worldwide. Researchers from different disciplines, such as energy, environment, computer science, mathematics, economics, social science, anthropology, architecture merge their powers to deliver cutting edge research regarding the technology, the data, the business models needed for islands The Islands Lab (islandslaboratory.com) is concerned with: • Energy trends and climate change impacts • Planning, design and operation of low carbon energy system • Low carbon technologies and infrastructure • Interconnected islands and interconnections between islands and mainland effects • Resource use (water-energy-land-food-materials) • Energy from waste • Business models and services • Economic, social and environmental impacts • Big data • Policy and regulations • Sustainable Development Goals Our areas of research include a diverse use of modelling techniques, consisting of energy system dynamics models, agent based modelling, game theory, optimization and simulation based models, integrative complex systems modelling approaches and data collection methods to better capture the complex system of interactions, operation simultaneously at several levels to provide policy insights into the effects and likely impacts of policy measures and the assessment and monitoring of SDGs progress. Our activities and methodological approaches aim synergies with the low carbon and smart cities vision. We work closely with companies, public sectors, islanders to transfer our research outcomes to the real world. Since 2013 we have analysed more than 136 islands nations worldwide including Anglesey, Ap Lei Chau, Azores Archipelago, Balearic Islands, Bermuda, Belle-Ile-En-Mer, Bornholm, Cook Islands, Corsica, Cape Verde, Curacao Island, Fayal, Gotland, Gozo, Gran Canaria, Guam, Fiji, Guadalupe, Galapagos Islands, Guland, Hainan, Hawaii, Hayling Island, Holy Island Isle of Wight, Jamaica, Island of Kos, Isle of Anglesey, Isle of Sheppey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Kiribati Islands, Lesbos Island, Lantau Island, Lolland, Mallorca, Madagascar, Madeira Archipelago, Martinique, Northern Mariana Islands, Nauru, New Caledonia, La Reunion, Orkney, Penghu, Penang, Rugen, Sardinia, Solomon Islands, Samoa, Samothrace, Taipa, Tahiti, Tasmania, Tenerife, Texel, Tokelau, Tsing Yi, Tuvalu, Zakynthos, Zhongshan, Xiamen, Walney Island and so on. Create a global directory of analysis for islands for energy and resource use, giving their geographical, economic, environmental and social characteristics.
