Welcome to IEA Wind Member Country Activities for Greece 2011
During 2011, total installed wind power increased from 1,210 MW in 2010 to 1,640 MW. The Greek government acknowledges the importance of renewable energy sources and sets new national policy for their development. In June 2010, a new law L3851/2010 entitled “Accelerating the Development of Renewable Energy Sources to deal with climate change and other regulations addressing issues under the authority of the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change” came into force. The main goal of the law was to simplify and accelerate licensing procedures. Regarding R&D, the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climatic Change continues to support and promote all RE activities in the country.
