White Paper - A glance at Greek solar


19 June 2019 by Marco Dorothal

This report focuses on the 3 key most important aspects of Greece's photovoltaic (PV) market: the country's solar situation, PV auctions, and the current obstacles & opportunities.


 

 

 

The first part of the report focuses on Greece's PV capacity and the current announced projects, followed by an auction analysis, and ends with an overview of the country's market challenges and the opportunities present for the future of Greek solar.

Greece’s solar PV market has experienced quite some developments over the six months since Solarplaza organized the first edition of ‘The Solar Future Greece’, back in November 2018. Since then, the country has organized two solar auctions in which it issued a total of 546.12 MW of PV capacity across 193 small and large-scale projects. The largest project that was issued capacity, the 204 MW Kozani solar project, is set to come online within the next two years and will be Southeast Europe’s largest solar PV plant to date. This, together with the ever-decreasing prices for PV equipment, have led Greece to once again become one of the most promising solar energy markets in Europe.

This report is part of the preparation for the second edition of The Solar Future Greece conference, the largest networking & inspirational platform in Greece for market leaders in solar energy, which will be hosted by Solarplaza on 21 November 2019, in Athens. The goal of this one-day conference is to bring together a diverse group of (inter)national developers, investors and other stakeholders to explore the opportunities in the growing Greek photovoltaics (PV) market.
