Greece preparing for offshore wind farm investments, Environment & Energy minister says

The institutional framework for offshore wind farms and energy storage will be ready by June 2021, Environment & Energy Minister Kostas Skrekas said on Tuesday, at an online conference on “Blue Economy Forum: The Way to Green Recovery”.

He said it would include issues of licensing, installation, and connections to the power network, while guaranteeing predictability for investments.

Offshore wind farms may also be combined with the production of “green” hydrogen, he said, underlying that Greece will be ready to welcome investments for both the offshore wind farms and floating solar panels (photovoltaics) within the coming months.
