SPEF, the Hellenic Association of Photovoltaic Energy Producers, plans to discuss a wide agenda of issues at its annual general meeting, scheduled to take place this Sunday in Trikala, mid-northern Greece.
Besides assessing the PV sector’s overall performance in 2017, a year highlighted by many crucial sector developments prompted by the RES special account deficit, including a drastic reduction of late payments for producers, the weekend meeting is also expected to feature a presentation and analysis of the Target Model. Sector terms forwarded for public consultation by LAGIE, the Electricity Market Operator, and IPTO, the power grid operator, as well as transitional mid-term conditions set by RAE, the Regulatory Authority for Energy, have been included on the agenda.
A general description offered by local authorities of Target Model, a process entailing the electricity wholesale market’s harmonisation with EU law, has raised many queries. Its details will be examined during Sunday’s SPEF meeting.
Matters crucial for further RES sector growth in Greece, including intraday corrections of producer positions in the market and the feed-in premium model, will also be examined.
The SPEF meeting, to take place at the Ananti City Resort hotel in Trikala (Sunday, 11am, free entrance) will be open to all RES producers.
