Nowadays the electrical energy production is based on fossil fuels in the greatest part of smaller islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Despite the availability, the renewable energy sources are practically unused, as landscape constraints. So, the paper presents the case of study of Ustica, a small island located at north of Sicily, in the middle of Mediterranean Sea. Starting with the analysis of the electrical energy consumption of public buildings, the paper suggests an energetic scenario, based on solar and sea wave. In particular, in order to use this new resource, the paper presents an innovative wave energy converter. Finally, the energetic and economic evaluations encourage the realization of the project.

Abstract

Nowadays the electrical energy production is based on fossil fuels in the greatest part of smaller islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Despite the availability, the renewable energy sources are practically unused, as landscape constraints. So, the paper presents the case of study of Ustica, a small island located at north of Sicily, in the middle of Mediterranean Sea. Starting with the analysis of the electrical energy consumption of public buildings, the paper suggests an energetic scenario, based on solar and sea wave. In particular, in order to use this new resource, the paper presents an innovative wave energy converter. Finally, the energetic and economic evaluations encourage the realization of the project.
