Αnnual new year celebration of the Hellenic Wind Energy Association (HWEA), 2019

On 26.01.2019, during the annual new year celebration of the Hellenic Wind Energy Association (HWEA), its president Mr. Panagiotis Ladakakos ascertained that in 2018 the first auctions took place for applying the new Feed in Premium instead of the former Feed in Tariff System. According to the statistics of HWEA, in 2018 were connected to the grid 103 new wind generators of total capacity of 191,6 MW. This corresponds to an annual increase of 7,2% in 2018 in comparison to the end of 2017. In the same period old wind generators of a total capacity of 15,43 MW were uninstalled, which are already replaced by new wind generators (repowering). That means that the total wind power at the end of 2018, actually in commercial or test operation, was 2.828,5 MW. (MStR Law, member of HWEA, responsible Dirk Reinhardt)
