Reunion Island, an insular region with ambitious renewable goals

Reunion Island, like most insular regions, is ruled by a carbon economy which is heavily dependent on oil, imported by sea. But in recent years, the energy transition has become the watchword of these non-interconnected areas. This results into an increasing implementation of renewable energy sources (RES) in these regions. In 2012, this island of the southwest Indian Ocean had a renewable electricity production capacity

Energy transition: France paves the way for COP21

France, host to the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21), took the lead regarding the measures to adopt in order to mitigate climate change and thus prevent and reduce our ecological footprint to spread further. Indeed, the French government set itself ambitious goals. “France must be exemplary”, according to the Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, Ségolène Royal. In order to realize these goals,

Satellite imagery for a successful energy transition

The relationship between satellite images and renewable energy sources (RES) is not necessarily easy to pinpoint. However, the use of satellite imagery is crucial to achieve a successful energy transition! Indeed, the latter enable to map, monitor and forecast the solar irradiance reaching Earth. It is of prime importance to geo-locate the appropriate photovoltaic (PV) implementation areas and to identify in real time a territory’s
