Greece: 4th National Report Regarding the Penetration Level of Renewable Energy Sources up to the Year 2010
Directive 2001/77/EC on the promotion of electricity produced from renewable energy sources in the internal electricity market (OJ L283/27.10.2001) in its annex sets an indicative target for Greece to cover a part of its gross national electricity consumption by 2010 from renewable energy sources (RES) equal to 20.1 percent, with the contribution of large-scale hydro¬¬electric plants included. This target is compatible with the international com¬mit¬ments of the country resulting from the Kyoto protocol signed in December 1997 within the context of the Rio UN framework agreement on climate change. The Kyoto protocol anticipates that Greece, by 2008-2012, will reduce the rate of increase of CO2 and other gases that aggravate the greenhouse effect by 25 percent in relation to the base year 1990.
According to the most recent estimates, the gross consumption of electric power in 2010, amounts to 71.9 TWh , i.e. close to the previous level of 72 TWh of the 2nd National Report and notably increased in comparison with the 68 TWh of the 3rd National Report. Subsequently, production of electric power from RES in the order of 14.45 TWh (including large-scale hydro-electric plants) is the goal for 2010.
In order to be set up a realistic scenario of required RES installed capacity to meet the above target, the following assumptions have been made:
• The share of various RES types will not vary significantly in the next three years. This assumption is considered as pragmatic given that rapid technological evolution that would lead to significant changes in the economic viability of the various technologies is not expected.
• The average power production per installed capacity unit (load factor, or equivalent operation hours) will be lower due to the necessary development of projects in areas of inferior RES potential.
