After a decade of impressive growth, the Greek non-hydro renewables industry came to a standstill in 2014, largely on account of regulatory changes introduced under the New Deal in mid-2014 as well as persisting economic and political challenges. While several recent project announcements highlight potential of the industry, we believe Greece's non-hydro renewables expansion will remain anaemic over the coming decade.

Measures to address power regulator LAGIE's deficit (which funds renewable energy) include the New Deal, introduced in April 2014. The measures substantially reduced feed-in tariffs, most steeply for solar photovoltaic (PV) plants; increased the renewables levy charged to all consumers (residential, commercial and industrial); and capped annual installations of new renewables capacity. This is the largest shake-up and restructuring of the Greek renewables sector to date.

In light of these regulatory changes and the more challenging conditions for renewable energy developers, we expect to see a marked slowdown in investment in the non-hydro renewables industry. Consequently, we forecast non-hydropower renewables capacity and generation growth to be anaemic between 2015 and 2024, expanding by 3.7% and 11.5%, respectively.

Key Trends And Developments

  • Greek utility Terna Energy has estimated the total investment for its 73.2 megawatt (MW) wind plant on St George Island in Greece at EUR150mn (USD177mn). Terna entered the project's final stage and set an objective to complete the facility by end-2015.

  • As of January 1 2015, the Greek Energy Regulatory Authority has implemented a renewables levy increase for residential, commercial and industrial consumers. The actual increase varied according to the type of consumer, but the annual average burden per household jumped from approximately EUR20 to EUR23.

  • A New Deal for the Greek renewables sector has been agreed with the troika of lenders to Greece. The measures increase levies to consumers and revenues...

BMI Industry View

Summary of BMI's key industry forecasts, views and trend analysis covering the renewables market in Greece, regulatory changes, major investments and projects and significant multinational and national company developments.

Industry SWOT Analysis

Analysis of the major Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats within the renewables sector and within the broader political, economic and business environment.

BMI Industry Forecasts

Historic data series (2010-2012) and forecasts to end-2018 for electricity generation (TWh) and electricity generating capacity (MW) for each individual renewables sector present in the country.

These in turn are broken down into:

Electricity Generation: Overall capacity (TWh), growth % change year-on-year, KWh per capita, % of Total Non-Hydropower renewables generation, % of total electricity generation.

Electricity Capacity: Overall capacity (MW), growth % change year-on-year, % of non-hydroelectric renewables capacity and % of total capacity.

These forecasts are in turn supported by explicit assumptions, in conjunction with analysis of the key risks to the main forecast.

Business Environment Rankings

BMI's Renewables Business Environment Rankings provide fully comparable Risk-Reward Rankings aimed at investors in the regional renewables market.

The rankings methodology makes sophisticated use of various industry, economic and demographic data point.
