SolarEnergyWorks takes 503 MWp of Greek solar projects to the next stage Two ambitious projects are now being developed in the central of Greece in the Thessaly region. Together with a total capacity of more than 500 MWp.
The fact that the energy transition requires a European approach was reason for the Dutch and Utrecht based project developer SolarEnergyWorks in 2019 to look for opportunities beyond the national borders within its European network. This resulted in the start of a collaboration with two Greek companies: AFA Group and MGD Energy. Together with Christos Syrikelas (AFA Group) and Panagiotis Mourtopallas (MGD Energy), a joint venture was set up.
An environmental permit has now been granted for the largest project of 303 MWp, a permit is also expected in the short term for the second project, a project of 200 MWp. The allocation of grid capacity is also expected this year. Both projects will be connected to the Greek grid by late 2025.
Tom van Dorp, CEO SolarEnergyWorks :
“Combining local knowledge with international project development expertise and network is the key to the success of our collaboration”
“The Greek market offers an interesting diversification opportunity for SolarEnergyWorks and with an irradiance almost twice that of the Northern Netherlands and more space, this is a perfect location for solar energy!”
With more than 500 MWp of planned capacity, we are realizing energy for 250.000 Greek households with two projects, more than all households in the city of Utrecht consume in a year!
