Necessary legislative adjustments to promote offshore wind energy in Greece

The Hellenic Wind Energy Association HWEA/ELETAEN in partnership with the Norwegian Wind Energy Association NORWEA, has been awarded the execution of a project titled “Necessary legislative adjustments to promote offshore wind energy in Greece”. The project had been approved by the Bilateral Relations Fund Committee for funding through the EEA Financial Mechanism 2014-2021. The project budget was 23.233,23 euros.

The project developed a partnership between Greek and Norwegian actors that concretely collaborated to produce a comparative analysis of regulatory frameworks for offshore wind and based on this, prepared draft input to a legal documentation for offshore wind in Greece, with all the critical adjustments/modifications of Greek legislation to occur, so as to facilitate the development of offshore wind projects in Greece.

Actions implemented included:

  1. Review and evaluation of the international experience in the regulatory framework for development of offshore wind farms.
  2. Investigation of legal issues for marine spatial planning and sea use.
  3. Strategic planning for the development of offshore wind farms in Greece.
  4. Formulation of a comprehensive legislative and regulatory framework for Greece.

In the context of the project, HWEA launched one public consultation trying to involve the interested parties and to incorporate their views into the prepared texts and organized two workshops to disseminate the results of the project. More details and videos can be found:

The project contributed to the process for the issuance of the necessary licences for the implementation of offshore wind projects, by the competent Hellenic Authorities, and thus to the attraction of international offshore wind energy players to invest in Greece.
