Island communities require in-detail mapping of resources available for exploitation for energy purposes since infrastructure and connections to the mainland present, in most cases, a weak point of the island energy supply. As the present energy supply on Croatian islands relies mostly on fossil fuels and electricity from the mainland, it is becoming obvious that exploitation of renewable energy sources is the only solution that leads towards self-sufficiency and sustainable development. In order to design self-sufficient and sustainable island, three major technological changes are needed: integration of renewable energy sources alongside with energy savings and efficient improvements in the energy production. Analysis conducted for the island of Hvar will result in creation of several scenarios which will clearly point out the favorable solutions for improvement of both security of energy supply and covering the majority of energy demand with renewable energy sources and storage technologies. Also, it must be noted that, when talking about implementation of renewable technologies on island of Hvar, an optimal mix of technologies must be applied in order to avoid excess costs and to achieve minimal impact on environment in terms of visual pollution.
