Greece has begun the new year with approvals for 240 MW of wind and solar projects. Terna Energy has received the go-ahead to build two solar parks with a combined capacity of 37.6 MW, while Energy Vorsana UAE has been given permission for a 81-MW wind project in the region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace. Additionally, North Solar 1 has been authorised to install a 96-MW PV complex in Thessaly region. Two smaller-scale wind projects, a 21-MW scheme in Boeotia region and a 6-MW wind farm in Epirus region have also been approved.

What Impact Will the 240 MW Wind and Solar Projects in Greece Have?

  • Greece is making great strides in renewable energy, with the recent approvals of two solar parks and two wind projects.
  • The two solar parks will have a combined capacity of 37.6 MW, while the wind projects will have a combined capacity of 87 MW.
  • With the new projects, the total amount of renewable energy capacity in Greece is expected to increase significantly.
  • This increase in renewable energy capacity will help Greece to transition away from fossil fuels and reduce its carbon footprint.
  • The new projects will also provide much-needed jobs and economic opportunities for the local communities.
  • The projects will also help Greece to become more energy independent, as it will no longer have to rely on imported energy sources.
