Investors seeking electricity production licenses – via renewable energy and combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) technologies – submitted applications representing a total of 1.1 GW in photovoltaic and wind energy installations to RAE, the Regulatory Authority for Energy, in September.

Applications for solar energy production led the way, totaling 876 MW, while wind energy applications reached 245 MW.

The greatest interest was expressed by investors eyeing development in northern Greece’s Kozani region, who submitted electricity production license applications for a total of 240 MW (solar). Evros, in the northeast, followed with 123.7 MW for PV production and 42 MW for wind energy production.

The applications were submitted by a large field of major domestic RES market players including Notios Ageras Energiaki, ABO Wind Hellas, Eoliko Parko Aetos, Elpedison, Egnatia Group (Mytilineos), PPC Renewables, Kiefer, Smart Energy Solutions, Ecosolar, Tsirifi Eolika Parka, Notias, and Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.
