On 6 June 2018, Director General Dominique Ristori announced the creation of the Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat at the European Sustainable Energy Week in Brussels. The announcement was made in the presence of the Members of Parliament of the Islands Commission, who had contributed to the setup of the Secretariat.
The launch of the Secretariat was the result of a process that had started in May 2017, when 14 Member States signed the Political Declaration on Clean Energy for EU Islands. The Declaration represents a political commitment by these countries to advance the transition on Europe’s islands. Only few weeks later, the European Commission launched the Clean Energy for EU Islands Initiative to support and strengthen this commitment. The EU Islands Secretariat will co-ordinate the day-to-day work of the initiative.
