Although Greece has established the Greek Atomic Energy Commission a decision has been made not to implement a nuclear power program to generate electricity.
Wind power in Greece was due to expand by 352% by 2020 to meet the European target of 20% coverage of energy needs from renewable sources. Previously, there were 1,028 wind turbines installed throughout Greece and the number was set to reach 2,587 wind turbines before the end of 2020.
Bulgaria has 700 MW of wind power installed today, covering 4% of its electricity demand. Last year, wind power overtook coal as the second-largest power capacity in the EU, providing now more than 10.4% of the EU’s electricity demand. Wind power is not only abundant but also competitive in Bulgaria today.
Greece developed 1 GW of solar in 2020 and has linked Crete to the mainland grid. Statistics published by Greece’s leading solar association show the country constructed 913 MW of new photovoltaic systems last year.
