Wind turbines in Greece set a national record on September 6 in electricity output, at 61.4 GWh.

Greece’s Independent Power Transmission Operator – IPTO said wind power generation reached 61.4 GWh on September 6, the most so far, translating to 48% of the domestic electricity demand. Data from the Balkan state’s transmission system operator, which also uses the Greek acronym ADMIE, revealed that two more records were achieved.

The share of 48% and the 45% that was registered one day later were by far the highest in the European Union, according to WindEurope, Greek media reported. The phenomenon was attributed to weak winds in other countries including those with a much higher share of wind power.

Renewables covered 59% overall of the daily demand on September 6 in Greece. One tenth came from solar power and other sources contributed 1%.

ADMIE said its interconnection projects and grid upgrades are helping “accelerate the shutdown of the most polluting power plants.”
