|Abstract||In this paper, the situation of the energy system of Lesvos island is presented, and two scenarios are developed which represent a wider implementation of Distributed Generation (DG), using the HOMER energy simulation model. The first case deals with the further penetration of wind energy till the upper allowed limit in an autonomous grid. The second case adds to the former the installment of a geothermal plant of 7MW size. The results extracted from the energy model are being considered in reference to the cost of electricity production and the power safety issues. A further energy and economical evaluation of the cases takes place, dealing with the further exploitation of the wind and geothermal potential of the island.|
