André Pacheco (AP) is an Environmental Engineer doctorate in physical oceanography (PhD finished 01/2011). He specialized on collection and processing of coastal oceanographic data, focusing on hydrodynamics, sediment transport, and bathymetric change on time scales of hours to years. He worked on several projects, both with National and European institutions, being responsible for organizing and perform high-frequency measurement of the current-wave interaction. Today his focus is on marine renewable energies. He aims to understand (1) what are the best methods to evaluate the power extraction potential from a local site; (2) what are device-environment interactions and their influence on energy extraction efficiency; and (3) what factors limit the reliability/survivability of the devices. Five years ago, AP created a research multidisciplinary team on marine renewable energy (MORE) at CIMA/University of Algarve. The team started it activity at the end of 2014 and AP successful accomplished the following benchmarks: (i) installed and tested the first tidal energy device at Portuguese waters under SCORE Project - Sustainability of using Ria Formosa Currents On Renewable Energy production (FCT - PTDC/AAG-TEC/1710/2014, AP is the Coordinator); (ii) won the OceanERA funding for supporting the environmental testing of a new tidal prototype (WATTAGE - Workability Aspects of Tidal Turbine Arrays on producing Green Energy, OceanERA JointCall 2014, AP is Coordinator); (iii) contributed to the writing and successful won of Monitor - Multi-model investigation of tidal energy converter reliability (funded by the Interreg AtlanticArea Program, AP is workpackage leader); (iv) assessed Oceanflow Energy on it successful application of FLOWSPAA - Floating Offshore Wind Support Platform for Afloat Assembly, funded by H2020-SMEINST-1-2015 to the Horizon 2020 SME Instrument Phase 1 (AP is research’ adviser); (v) got funding from H2020-Marie SkLodowska-Curie Actions -Individual Fellowship - 2016 (OpTiCA - Optimisation of Tidal Energy Converter Arrays, AP is Co-Principal supervisor); and (vi) was invited to collaborate with H2020 Marinerg-I to showcase Ria Formosa as a potential test site for this pan-European Research Infrastructure for Offshore Renewable Energy. Until now, AP published 27 papers in peer review journals and his works were presented on the most rated international conferences on coastal processes and marine energy. He also supervised the completion of a PhD thesis and two MSc thesis, and is currently co-supervisor of two MSc Thesis on marine energy under the Master MACS - Marine and Coastal Systems, University of Algarve, where he lectured the Marine Modelling Systems course in 2016-2017. During the last 3 years, AP accumulated the function of being CIMA’ vice-director. He is also a European Commission evaluator of the Marie Currie Individual fellowships, RIA H2020 Earth Observation and Twinning calls, as well as of the Marinet2 H2020 Program.

This island has had a fishing community since the end of the 19th century. The community is currently working as a team with the University of the Algarve, with the aim of initiating an energy transition process that includes generating eletricity from the sun, improving energy efficiency, fight energy poverty and optimize the coexistence with the threatened species and habitats.

2022/01/20 PORTUGAL EM DIRETO RTP1 - THE FIRST PORTUGUESE NEIGHBORHOOD IS IN CULATRA - This is how Ilha da Culatra is referred to in the report broadcast on January 20, 2022, on the Portugal em Direto program on RTP. The process of energy transition and gradual self-sufficiency of the island is one of the most important objectives of the Culatra2030 initiative, benefiting everyone without exception - residents, companies and entities that fight daily to defend the interests of the island's resources. RTP
2020/12/21 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - SMART STORY - This is how Culatra Island is seen in the eyes of the European Union's Smart Specialisation Strategy. The Culatra 2030 - Sustainable Energy Community initiative is a demonstration project on the island of Culatra in Algarve, Portugal, covering multiple aspects of green transition. It implements the ambitions of the Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3) in Algarve, using a novel Entrepreneurial Discovery Process (EDP) to create a real-life laboratory for green transition.
