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.
