There was 2.15 GW either in commercial use or being tested, up by 8.7% from 2014, Energy Press portal reported.

Wind power capacity on noninterconnected islands was 322.6 MW. EDF EN Hellas added 43.8 MW, the EREN Group connected 42 MW, Ell. Tech Anemos or Ellaktor added 36.1 MW, Protergia increased the capacity by 27 MW, and Terna Energy added 10 MW.

Total capacity of renewable energy sources in the interconnected grid rose in November, according to data revealed by Lagie, the electricity market operator. Wind energy production increased by only 4 MW to 1.77 GW in the month alone.

In November, the contracted capacity of interconnected photovoltaic systems remained steady at 3.08 GW, while the size of installed systems advanced insignificantly to 2.09 GW. The level remained unchanged for small hydropower units (223.53 MW), biomass-biogas units (51.18 MW), and combined heat and power (CHP) production (100.07 MW), the report said.
