The El Hierro project was a successful multi-level governance project aiming to transform the El Hierro Island into the first energy-isolated territory in the world able to power itself entirely from renewable energy sources. In order to reach this objective, both national and local authorities and a private company (Endesa) built a large wind - hydro power plant, with a very innovative system of energy
accumulation in water basins at the top of the mountains.
Thanks to this innovative system, the public-private company created to manage the system, Gorona del Viento El Hierro S.A., can tackle the problems related to the intermittency of renewable energy production.
