EY Report: Greece Sets Record in Renewable Energy Sources Index

October 19, 2021

ATHENS — Greece ranked 24th among the top 40 global markets in renewable energy sources, a record-high performance for the country, Ernst & Young said in a report. EY made particular mention of the latest renewables tender held in May offering contracts with a total power of 350MW for solar projects up to 20MW and an average charge of 37.6 euros/MWh.

Pricing ranged from 32.97 to 51.2 euros/MWh. EY said the tender included 126 renewable projects with a total power of 1.1GW, a result of last year’s reform in the licensing procedure and the implementation of a rapid digital process for tenders.

Following the restructuring of the licensing procedure, the regulatory watchdog has received applications of a total power of 85GW, raising the total power of possible investments to more than 100GW, significantly more than the 19GW the country needs to achieve a target for participating in the mixture of electricity power by 61 pct until 2030.


ATHENS (TNH Staff/ANA) - Public prosecutor Ioannis Sevis, who is handling the investigation into the finances of the child welfare charity “Kivotos tou Kosmou” (Ark of the World), has instructed the Financial Police to carry out an in-depth audit of the charity’s financial affairs, as well as to investigate 11 individuals highly placed in the organisation or linked to the founder, Father Antonios Papanikolaou, and his wife.
