Additional RES capacity installed at just 9 MW in November

A mere nine megawatts of renewable energy sources (RES) capacity were added to the grid in November by the development of new projects, according to a statement released by LAGIE, the Electricity Market Operator.

Wind-park development added eight of the additional nine MW registered, while the other one MW was provided by the photovoltaic sector, bringing the country’s installed RES capacity total to 4,995 MW.

Divided up as sub-sectors, wind park facilities now offer a total capacity of 1,910 MW, photovoltaics provide 2,215 MW, roof-mounted photovoltaic capacity is at 374 MW, biomass facilities at 47 MW, small-scale hydropower facilities at 220 MW, and combined heat and power (CHP) at 229 MW.

So far this year, local RES units have produced 8,279 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity.
