Project Details

We are excited to announce another important milestone for Wattcrop Hellas!

The company has successfully submitted 25 solar projects totaling 636MW for production license during the Greek Regulatory Authority’s (RAE) June 2022 cycle.

The projects are all located in the region of Macedonia in Northern Greece. This submission also includes Wattcrop’s first floating solar project with a total capacity of 50MW. If all these projects were realised, they would result in significant reduction of CO2 emissions. The CO2 savings would be approximately 766.500 tons per year, while the total electricity generated would be sufficient to power more than 100.000 homes.

Earlier in June, Wattcrop also submitted a 200MW, 800MWh behind-the-meter Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) to RAE, doubling its current storage portfolio. With the latest regulations for storage projects coming together, the team expects that storage will play a significant role in balancing a renewables-dominated Greek power system in the future.

About Greece

Greece is a small country with specific geographical and seasonal characteristics. When it comes to electricity the country is a net importer. The total annual electricity consumption is about 52TWh which is not a significant amount. Despite that, the country has some unique advantages for renewables. It is well suited both for wind and solar installations and plans new national / international inter-connectors that can significantly increase the potential to become a key net exporter of green power within the EU.

About Us

We at Wattcrop are aiming to take a role in the centre stage and help towards realizing the Green Energy Transition with respect to the environment and in harmony with the local communities.
