Greece's wind-powered electricity capacity rises 6.6 pct

Installed wind-powered electricity capacity in Greece rose to 1,864.6 megawatts at the end of 2013 from 1,749.4 MW a year earlier, the Hellenic Wind Energy Association said on Thursday.

Installed capacity rose by 71.15 MW in the second half of 2013 compared with an increase of 44.05 MW in the first half and 10.35 MW in the second half of 2012, showing investment recovery amid adverse economic conditions, the Athens-based association said in an e-mailed statement.

Electricite de France SA was the biggest producer of wind energy in Greece in 2013, accounting for 322.8 MW or 17 percent of total production, according to the association.

Terna Energy SA was the second-largest producer with 277.4 MW and Iberdrola Renovables SAs Greek unit, Rokas Renewables, was third with 250.7 MW. Enel Green Power SpA and Ellaktor made up the rest of the top five producers.

Vestas Wind Systems A/S accounted for 49 percent of wind turbines installed in Greece in 2013 and Enercon GmbH for 24 percent.
