Enel Green Power (EGP), a renewable energy developer, has announced it has installed and brought online a total of 57MW of PV capacity in Greece.

The company revealed that it had constructed 13 new PV plants with a total capacity of 42MW. The plants, which are now operational, represent the final Greek projects under EGP’s 2012-2016 business plan.

Four of the plants are located in Macedonia, namely the Florina Yatsovo plant (1.5MW with an annual output of 2 million kWh), the Helios plant (6MW with an annual output of over 8 million kWh), the Axiochori plant (6.25MW with an annual output around 8 million kWh) and the Vavdos plant (1.37MW with an annual output of around 2 million kWh).

An additional four plants are located in the region of Thrace, namely the Advira-Pezoula plant (2.8MW with an annual output of 3.6 million kWh), the Karidia plant (3.3MW with an annual output of 4 million kWh), the Pezouliotika plant (3.5 MW with an annual output of around 4.5 million kWh) and the Herodasos plant (4MW with an annual output of about 5 million kWh).

Two of the plants are located in southern Greece, namely the Farsala III plant (0.92MW with an annual output of 1 million kWh) and the Ekta plant (2MW with an annual output of around 2.5 million kWh).

Two plants are located in Thessaly — the Gephyria I and Gephyria II plants which have a combined capacity of 3.54MW and a total annual output of 5 million kWh — while the final plant is located in Elide, called Stroussi. The Stroussi plant has a capacity of 6.43MW and generates more than 9 million kWh of electricity a year.

The remaining 15MW is composed of six new PV plants developed and brought online by ESSE, a joint venture between EGP and Sharp which was established for the development of photovoltaic power in the Mediterranean region.

The six PV plants fall under three projects called Zitza in Eprius, Kalenta in Thrace and Kryoni in western Macedonia. The Zitza project consists of a 2MW plant and generates more than 2.5 million kWh of electricity every year. The Kalenta project consists of four PV plants — Iasmos, Polysitos I, Polysitos II and Sounio — which have a combined capacity of 9.8MW and a total annual output of 13 million kWh. The Kryoneri project has a capacity of 3.5MW and an annual output of around 5 million kWh.

In total, the 19 operational PV facilities will generate an estimated total of 76 million kWh of electricity every year. 


Earlier today, Greek grid operator, Hellenic Transmission, announced the country installed 1.126GW of solar PV capacity, while rooftop capacity was 298MW in December 2012.

The solar tracker market continues to mature at breakneck speed, with designs and component selections becoming ever-more complex in the pursuit of better project economics. But a more simplistic design could deliver a triple benefit of lower Capex, EPC and Opex costs. This webinar will set out the ideal single axis tracker design for utility-scale solar farms. The design leapfrogs from decades of experience, with a comprehensive understanding and attention to the three cost structures of Capex, EPC and Opx. Sun and Steel Solar has prototyped a single axis tracker designed to deliver up to US$0.03/W in real savings compared to existing single axis trackers on the market. That’s US$30 million for every gigawatt deployed.
