The territory of the Republic of Seychelles covers 455 km² with 91.650 inhabitants. 8% of the annual electricity requirement comes from renewable sources, with the production of 6 MW of wind energy through 8 750 kW turbines; the rest, from conventional generation (imported diesel).
Until 2014, the energy model of the Seychelles, a small developing island state, was entirely dependent on diesel imports. The government has therefore established a target for the integration of renewable sources to the extent of 15% within the 2030. Thanks to a concession from the United Arab Emirates, construction of the Port Victoria Wind Farm, wind farm that constitutes the first block of the upcoming renewable energy revolution of the Seychelles. Among the benefits achieved since its implementation, the alleviation of the economic impact of diesel imports and the non-emission of 5845 tCO2 / year. The Port Victoria Wind Farm serves as an example of the feasibility of the wind resource in small island states, especially in the Indian Ocean.
