Consultation for non-interconnected island RES capacities

Studies conducted by distribution network operator DEDDIE/HEDNO on RES station and hybrid unit capacities for non-interconnected islands have just been forwarded for consultation by RAE, the Regulatory Authority for Energy.

These studies are necessary for the development of a new RES support framework for hybrid units on islands, now being prepared by the government.

Auctions to be held will cover separate regions, while capacities offered will be based on new RES penetration levels.

Maintenance of current capacity figures has been recommended for Samos (7 MW), Lesvos (16 MW) and Chios (10 MW). Elsewhere, new capacity levels have been proposed for Santorini (4.6 MW), Serifos (240 kW) and Patmos (748 kW).
