The Greek solar market has returned to growth via a series of tenders, as individual actors increasingly embrace PV technology to reduce costs and reach their sustainability standards.

And a recent wave of official announcements regarding the development of solar PV projects in the country’s mining regions has also started to dominate headlines.

The goal is to install a massive 2 GW solar project in Ptolemaida (Kozani), northern Greece, and another 1 GW photovoltaic park on the Peloponnese Peninsula, southern Greece.

Construction is set to start by as early as next year.
