ABSTRACT
The article reports that El Hierro, the smallest in the Canary Islands, will be the world's first island to be completely energy self-sufficient, from renewable resources. All the island's energy will come from wind, water, and solar power by 2010, with a wind farm producing the power needed to pump desalinated water to a reservoir which will drive a turbine to generate electricity. El Hierro also plans to promote energy-efficient alternative transportation, including an extensive pedestrian system and biogas-fuelled busses and cars, in order to conserve power.
