The Greek Minister of Environment and Energy recently announced a 700 MW tender for energy storage, to be issued in the autumn with a procurement of €200 million (US$235 million) in subsidies. In addition, through its Recovery and Resilience Plan, majority-funded by the EU, Greece plans on investing more than €450 million for the installation of 1,380 MW of energy storage (including pumped hydro storage) by 2030.

Greece seems to be bound to represent a key storage market in the next 10 years.

Clean Horizon CEO Michael Salomon talks us through some of the facts and figures, explaining the drivers and present and forthcoming market opportunities.

We were honoured to also welcome as speakers Konstantinos Petsinis, Director of Branch Market Design & Monitoring at Greece’s Transmission System Operator, IPTO, and Dr. George Loizos, Head of Electricity Networks and New Technologies at the national Regulatory Authority for Energy.
