    Greece’s Crete island to host 120 MW of hybrid renewables - report

    May 22, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      May 22 (Renewables Now) - The Greek island of Crete is set to become home to 120 MW of hybrid renewable power stations under a winder plan that aims to strengthen the energy security of the country's island areas, Energypress reports.

      The projects in question, details about which were not available, are due to be approved by the country’s Energy Ministry. Unnamed sources have said that a positive decision could have been awarded already.

      The projects included in the 120-MW bundle will supposedly receive tariffs that will be set through administrative procedures rather than through tenders. According to the insiders, four schemes in the portfolio, of 84.5 MW in total, lead the race for securing tariffs as they have reached an advanced stage in the licensing process.

      In May last year, Greece adopted its first national climate protection law that set interim targets as part of a 2050 net-zero strategy and clears the path towards exiting lignite power generation by 2028. The country also has in place a support framework, which has been endorsed by the European Commission (EC), for the deployment of renewable energy capacity with energy storage on its islands, including small non-interconnected ones.
