Greece Adds Solar Project
Greece is adding solar energy through “Delfini,” a 100 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) project, one of the country's first solar projects to utilize a private power purchase agreement that does not benefit from government subsidies on electricity costs.
The Delfini solar project will add cheaper, clean energy to Greece’s grid. Project construction has begun and is expected to reach completion by third quarter 2023.
Cero Generation, an European solar energy developer, chose Ameresco Energy Hellas S.A., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ameresco Inc. and Sunel Group, an international developer and EPC contractor for energy projects, to work on the solar project.
Ameresco SUNEL Energy S.A., the joint company already established in Greece, will undertake the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of the 100-MW solar PV park in Prosotsani Drama, Greece.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Ameresco and Sunel Group on this landmark project. Against the backdrop of an ongoing energy crisis, we're helping to deliver cheaper, cleaner power across the country and supporting the government's ambitious transition goals. This project is an important step in the expansion of Cero's Greek portfolio and one of many market-leading projects in our pipeline,” said Marta Martinez Queimadelos, CEO of Cero Generation in a statement.
