Operating wind power capacity in Greece grew by 7.9 percent in the second half of 2013, amounting to 1,864.6 megawatts (MW), according to market data released this week by the Hellenic Scientific Association of Wind Energy (ELETAEN).

The new wind power capacity installed within that period comes to 71.15 MW, according to the same data. The figure is double compared to the first six months of 2013 and seven times more than the same period in 2012.

Environment, Energy and Climate Change Minister Yiannis Maniatis on Wednesday issued a ministerial decree defining the environmental terms and conditions for the construction and operation of seven large wind farms with an installed total capacity of 465 megawatts in Mt.Vermio, between the regions of Imathia and Kozani, Northern Greece. As ANA-MPA reports, the wind farms will contribute 558 million euros to the country's real economy and produce 1,075 gigawatts of 'green' electricity on an annual basis, corresponding to 2% of national demand. Another 16 wind farms with a total capacity of 422.7 megawatts will be constructed on the mainland and the islands, contributing 507 million euros to the real economy.
