BMI View: Despite favourable climatic conditions for the development of renewable energy, the Greek non-hydro renewables industry will remain at a virtual standstill over the coming decade. The growth will be stalled by an unstable regulatory environment, poor project financing conditions and the country's persisting economic and political challenges.

Latest Updates and Structural Trends

  • This quarter we have kept our pessimistic forecast for Greece's non-hydro renewables industry. Over the coming decade, we expect the industry to average 0.3% and 0.4% annual growth rates in terms of non-hydro renewables capacity and generation respectively.

  • In order to rein in persisting Renewable Energy Sources (RES) deficits, in April 2016 the Greek Environment and Energy Ministry has proposed essential changes to the RES special account system, which would include a revamp of its revenue-raising mechanisms. The draft proposals are currently being coordinated with the European Commission (EC) and could reach the Greek parliament in early summer 2016.

  • The Environment and Energy Ministry plans to stage two pilot tenders for an installation of PV facilities with a total capacity of 50MW. According to, the tenders are expected to be launched in June 2016.

  • In February 2016 Mihalis Veriopoulos, who is in charge of Energy and Mineral Resources division at the Greek Environment and Energy Ministry, revealed government plans to add 2.5GW of new renewables capacity by 2020.
