El Hierro

The concept of local economic development turned into a new reality when the present and the former mayors of the island El Hierro put the wind-hydro-fly wheel technology in motion generating water as an engine for growth with renewable energies only. The local engineering team headed by Juan Manuel Quintero designed a system that is tailored to the opportunities and requirements of the island. It is not only a model for the rest of the world, it is a concrete example how "the impossible turned possible." The impossible is not so much overcoming the engineering and financial challenges. The impossible is that the local population controls 60% of the new water and energy company in partnership with ENDESA, the large energy company. And ... it only has just begun. The islanders are ready for the next challenge: stop using fuel for mobility, securing more cash circulates in the economy. The first electric cars arrived and there is a plan to replace all 6,000 fossil fuel engines with electric and compressed air vehicles. The most important desire is that young people return to the island and can imagine their career where their parents were born. Located three hours from Madrid and only one hour from the African coast, the future is for those who are unreasonable and yet make it happen against all odds.
