Big wave of RES group applications continues in 2021

Group applications for small-scale solar energy systems have remained high in 2021, the number of group requests so far submitted to power grid operator IPTO for finalized connection terms reaching 70 for a total of 2,696 units representing a capacity of 2,260 MW, energypress sources have informed.

These figures essentially mean that applications representing approximately 25 percent of the capacity planned to be installed in Greece by 2030 were submitted during the first ten months or so of the current year.

IPTO is currently offering finalized connection terms for successful group RES applications made until December 31, 2020. To date, the operator has offered connection terms for 20 group applications submitted in 2020, representing a capacity of approximately 705 MW.
