The total installed wind power capacity in Greece at the end of 2021 reached 4456 MW (an 8% increase compared to the end of 2020).
The total new capacity installed in Greece in 2021 was 338 MW lower than the all-time record of 2019 (752 MW) but still higher than the 10-year average (284 MW). A total of 128 new wind turbines with an average nameplate capacity of 2.67MW were installed.
Aside from natural gas, wind energy remains the biggest domestic energy source for the Greek Electricity system, providing 18.9% of total demand. During the year, variable RES penetration to the electricity system reached values as high as 92% of total demand (1-hour average), without any negative side effects on the operation and stability of the system.
