Greece seeks to export solar power by 2015

Greece is seeking to export power generated by solar panels before 2015, Manager Magazin reported, citing Energy Minister George Papaconstantinou.

In the coming weeks, the country will adopt legislation to simplify permitting and aims to connect its first 300-megawatt plant by the end of 2013 as part of the Helios solar-energy project, the German magazine said, citing Papaconstantinou. [Bloomberg]
