New Greek Television mentions in an article on 21 September 2020 that there are currently 11,000 applications for RES investments outstanding in Greece. These are for 76 GW in installed capacity, which is over ten times the power capacity Greece needs to meet its 2030 RES target.
Greece’s government has the ambition to move away from traditional energy sources completely in the next eight years, utilising only renewable forms of energy such as wind, solar and hydroelectric power.
