    Red tape slows down pace of Greece’s wind deployments in 2022

    January 27, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      January 27 (Renewables Now) - Greece put on stream 230 MW of wind farms in the past year, lifting its cumulative installed wind turbine capacity to 4,681 MW, shows data by the Hellenic Scientific Association of Wind Energy (ELETAEN).

      According to statistics released on Wednesday, a total of 68 turbine generators started feeding electricity into the grid in 2022 as compared to 128 machines with a combined capacity of 338.2 MW in 2021. The new deployments came from projects that required an overall investment of over EUR 230 million (USD 250.8m), an increase of 5.2% as compared to investments made in 2021.

      The industry association explained that the year-on-year drop in capacity additions is a result of bureaucracy issues and administrative hurdles.

      The bulk of wind turbines currently operating in Greece, or 1,872 MW, are located in Central Greece, followed by Peloponnese with 639 MW, and Eastern Macedonia and Thrace with 534 MW. Greek renewable power producer Terna Energy is the largest owner in terms of installed capacity, with 713.6 MW of plants in operation.

      Greece is expected to have 6 GW of wind farms in operation within the next three years. More than 840 MW of capacity was under construction at end-2022, while a further 450 MW is undergoing certification.
