Pylons -Πυλώνες

Welcome to the 4th issue of Pylons, which this time arrives on time, six months after issue no. 3. As already announced, the special theme of this issue is Electromobility, a technology essential for the Green Energy Transition facing, however, problems and difficulties either already obvious, or expected to appear during the next stage of its generalized expansion.

The Greek Power System towards the Green Transition

Due to its geographical position and shape, Greece has a verified high wind and solar potential (especially at the eastern part of the country), and the western part has a significant hydro potential (mainly at the west) that is already being exploited. The utilization of intermittent RES (wind and solar) was accelerated during last 20-25 years so that Greece has already achieved large RES penetration. Nevertheless, new and more ambitious targets have been set towards further decarbonization, bringing new challenges for the Greek power system.
