Wind energy is a practically inexhaustible source of energy. The exploitation of its high potential in Greece, coupled with the rapid development of technologies embedded in modern efficient wind turbines, is of paramount importance for sustainable development, saving energy resources, environmental protection and addressing climate change.
Initially, an application is submitted to Regulatory Authority For Energy with notification to the Ministry of Environment & Energy for granting an electricity generation license. Regulatory Authority For Energy takes into account the technical characteristics and environmental parameters of the project, possible national security issues, wind measurements, and the possibility of connecting the wind park to the electricity grid (after consultation with Independent Power Transmission Operator ) .
Once the production license has been obtained, all the permits provided for by the applicable legislation will have to be obtained, and more important the installation permit. Subsequently, the necessary planning permits for the construction of the base stations of the wind turbines, as well as for the construction of the other accompanying infrastructure projects (e.g control building, substation) should be issued in order to start the construction of the project, as well and the installation protocol by the competent Forestry Office if the installation is in forests or wooded areas.
