PV interconnected capacity edges up to 2,092.56 MW in November

The rising trend of the total capacity of renewable energy source (RES) production to the country’s interconnected grid continued in November, latest data provided by LAGIE, the Electricity Market Operator, has shown.

The total capacity of wind-energy production increased to 1,772.07 MW in November from 1,768.07 a month earlier. Capacity increases were also registered in photovoltaic systems interconnected with the grid, as well as roof-mounted systems.

Contracted capacity of interconnected photovoltaic systems remained steady at 3,083 MW, while installed capacity rose to 2,092.56 MW in November from 2,092.07 MW in October.

The capacity of roof-mounted interconnected systems rose to 350.79 MW in November from 350.68 MW in October. The capacity of roof-mounted photovoltaic systems on the non-interconnected islands remained unchanged at 24.35 MW.

Capacity remained unchanged for small hydropower units (223.53 MW), biomass-biogas units (51.18 MW), and combined heat and power (CHP) production (100.07 MW).
