    Greece to consult on offshore wind framework in June - report

    May 20, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      May 20 (Renewables Now) - Greece’s new legislative framework for offshore wind development is almost completed and is due to be open for public consultation in June, Energypress reported on Friday.

      According to the news portal, the Energy Ministry is putting the final touches to the framework’s final version. Unnamed sources have said that the regulations call for awarding capacity in specific offshore wind areas through a single tender, rather than a two-phased process that was proposed originally. The change would then result in a streamlined and time-saving procedure.

      Supposedly, concessions for offshore development sites will be awarded to proponents offering the lowest cost. Before the competition, interested candidates will be allowed to carry out wind measurements at selected locations, which are planned to take between one and two years.

      The potentially suitable areas for bottom-fixed parks are considered to be near Northern Evia and off Alexandroupolis, while waters off the Cyclades islands, Dodecanese, Crete and Karpathos are seen to be offering conditions for the deployment of floating with technologies.

      Greece aims at having 7 GW of installed wind power capacity by 2030, of which 2 GW from offshore turbines. At end-2020, it had 7 GW of wind turbines in operation, all of which onshore, data by WindEurope shows.
