IPTO has secured the required electrical capacity of 2 GW to facilitate the launch of the “nationally important new market of offshore wind parks in Greece,” noted Independent Power Transmission Operator (IPTO) Chairman & CEO Manousos Manousakis on Thursday.

Manousakis was addressing a workshop titled ‘Offshore Wind in Greece – Prospects & Challenges for the supply chain & a sustainable growth’, held by the Hellenic Wind Energy Association (HWEA).

Offshore wind parks are critical to achieving a central goal of Greece’s energy policy, he said, which is to transform the country from the fossil fuel importer it has been historically into a clean energy exporter.

The long-term planning for developing 12 GW renewable energy projects in coming decades reveals the need for export-oriented, cross-border interconnections launched by IPTO, he added. This way, green energy surpluses produced by offshore wind parks can be transported to central European markets, he added.

Included in this framework are projects such as the second Greece-Bulgaria electrical interconnection that was recently completed, Manousakis underlined, the second Greece-Italy interconnection, the Greece (Crete)-Cyprus-Israel interconnection, but also the Green Aegean Interconnector project that will connect Greece to south Germany.
