Introduction : (from the site of global wind energy council )

The global wind power industry installed 7,976 megawatts (MW) in 2004, an increase in total installed generating capacity of 20%, according to figures released today by the Global Wind Energy Council - GWEC.

Global wind power capacity has grown to 47,317MW. The countries with the highest total installed wind power capacity are Germany (16,629 MW), Spain (8,263 MW), the United States (6,740 MW), Denmark (3,117 MW) and India (3,000 MW).

Brussels, March 4th 2005 --- The global wind power industry installed 7,976 megawatts (MW) in 2004, an increase in total installed generating capacity of 20%, according to figures released today by the Global Wind Energy Council - GWEC (1). Global wind power capacity has grown to 47,317MW.
The countries with the highest total installed wind power capacity are Germany (16,629 MW), Spain (8,263 MW), the United States (6,740 MW), Denmark (3,117 MW) and India (3,000 MW). A number of countries, including Italy, the Netherlands, Japan, and the UK, are above or near the 1,000-MW mark.
Europe continued to dominate the global market in 2004, accounting for 72.4% of new installations (5,774 MW). Asia had a 15.9% of installation share (1,269 MW), followed by North America (6.4%; 512 MW) and the Pacific Region (4.1%; 325 MW). Latin America + the Caribbean (49 MW) and Africa (47 MW) had a 0.6% market share respectively (Annex 3).

Europe is the global leader in wind energy, but we are witnessing the globalisation of the wind energy markets. In Europe, the market has experienced average annual growth rates of 22% over the past six years; however, the further rapid progress that the industry is capable of delivering is constrained by barriers such as grid access and administrative hurdles”, said EWEA President Arthouros Zervos. “Renewed political initiatives by the G8 could boost wind power; the industry is well positioned and ready for a more rapid roll out given the right political signals".

Growth in the US market was predictably slow because of the long delay in extending the federal production tax credit (PTC) for wind energy, which had expired in December 2003 and was extended in October 2004. Proposed projects are now back on the fast track and AWEA expects that over 2,000 MW will be installed nationwide during 2005. Uncertainty continues to loom over the US market however since the PTC will expire again in December 2005 unless Congress moves quickly to extend the incentive. The US wind energy industry is calling for a long-term extension so that it can plan for steadier, stronger growth over the coming years.

"Wind energy technology has bolted out of the starting gate in the U.S. and is delivering clean, safe, inexhaustible power to customers nationwide, but its deployment remains hobbled by the intermittency and uncertainty of the federal incentive for wind and other renewable energy sources," said AWEA Executive Director Randall Swisher. "For wind energy to contribute a substantially larger share to the nation’s electricity, companies need a stable planning horizon, comparable at least to that available for conventional technologies."

"The new policy for the promotion of Renewable Energy Sources, adopted by the Hellenic Ministry for Development, recognises the importance to the national economy of promoting RES applications, as a means to secure energy supply, exploit an environmentally friendly local energy source, and at the same time achieve the Kyoto GHG reduction targets and fight global warming.
We, at the Ministry, strongly believe that the time has come for Greece to realise its full potential and become the new developing European wind energy market."

Από που αντλείς στοιχεία ? ^^
Οι πηγές είναι αρκετές , ξεκινώντας από το Κέντρο Ανανεώσημων Πηγών Ενέργειας , διεθνείς και ευρωπαϊκούς οργανισμούς (βλέπε wind energy council) , ερευνητικά ιδρύματα (π.χ. Πανεπιστήμιο Πατρών που έχω και άμεση πρόσβαση ) , ιστοσελίδες εταιριών σχετικές με την ενέργεια (π.χ.

Aeolic Energy: A New Wind Blowing
(from - ελληνικό κέντρο επενδύσεων )

Investors in Renewable Energy Sources (RES) are finding that Greece is at the center of tremendous opportunity, especially in the aeolic, or wind, sector. And as analysts predict that oil prices may remain at current levels for the long-term, the financial viability of RES is increasingly seen as positive.

Jose Donoso, European Business Director at Spain's Gamesa Energea, says "We believe that the Greek market is a highly promising and attractive one. We are fully convinced that Greece is offering us powerful reasons to keep a solid investment policy in the country. Besides, the investment incentives in the wind sector are further encouraging our company to maintain our commitment to a long-term industrial strategy in Greece.

One of the reasons that companies such as Gamesa Energea is so bullish on the Greek market is that the current government is bullish on RES. Dr. Ioannis Tsipouridis, President of the Hellenic Wind Energy Association, says "The national climate is also favourable as the new Deputy Minister in charge of renewables (Mr. Salagoudis) believes that RES, apart from its contribution to combating climate change, is an opportune field, ideal to foreign and local investment." Dr. Tsipouridis notes that almost all RES stations that have been granted a permit since 1994 were licensed during the past 12 months.

Investors are looking to Greece with good cause. A recent Ernst and Young Investment Attractiveness Index for aeolic parks ranks Greece sixth globally.

Dr. Tsipouridis estimates that on top of the 465 MW now operating in Greece, another 2,500 to 3,000 MW will be installed by 2010,
citing the favorable international climate toward RES, the EU RES electricity production directive, the Kyoto Protocol, emissions trading mechanisms, and Greece's political will as strong factors.

Gamesa, for instance, has had an active presence in the Greek market since 2001. Today it has a portfolio of more than 800 MW with wind potential under research in all sites, production licenses obtained for 238 MW, installation licenses obtained for 42,5 MW, and one wind farm under construction in Thessalia (17 MW).

Other foreign companies to enter Greek market recently include IBERDROLA of Spain, EDF Energies Nouvelles of France, and CESA Eolica Corporation of Spain. Japan's Eurus Energy Europe, Germany's WRE, and other foreign companies are pursuing a variety of wind projects in Greece. Many Greek firms are also very active in wind energy.

Dr. Nick Vassilakos, Vice President of the European Renewable Energies Association (EREF) and Senior Adviser to GAREP (Greek Association of RES Electricity Producers) notes that more information about wind energy and other Renewable Energy Sources can be found from the association.

As Renewable Energy Sources take their place in the national and international energy makeup, sectors such as wind energy promise to deliver highly attractive returns. Investors in the Greek market are positioned to be leaders for decades to come.

Greenpeace: Solar power breaks through cost barrier on Crete

Athens/Amsterdam, 12.6.1997 - Solar power today enters a new era
with the Greek Governments' decision to begin the construction
of the world's largest solar photovoltaic (PV) power station on
the island of Crete. The solar power station is part of a two
year campaign by Greenpeace to transform Crete into a solar
powered island.

The Greek Energy Minister Vasso Papandreou today agreed to fund
the first 5 Megawatt tranche of a proposed 50 Megawatt PV power
station on Crete with the U.S. company ENRON SOLAR. The European
Union (EU) and the Greek government will fund 55% of the capital
costs. Total investment is 17.75 million US dollars. Enron
Solar's plan submitted to the Greek Government proposes building
9 Megawatts a year subsequently to reach 50 Megawatts by 2003.
The current largest PV power station is 3.3 Megawatts in Italy.

Following the Greek Governments' announcement, Thilo Bode
Executive Director said "This smashes conventional assumptions
on solar power in terms of scale and costs. The solar age is no
longer a future dream but a reality today".

At 50 Megawatts, the Crete solar power station would be fifteen
times larger than any other solar PV installation in the
world, be more than four times cheaper than the average costs
of PV, and provide electricity for nearly 100,000 people, an
eighth of Crete's population. The given costs of electricity
given by Enron Solar for the first 5 Megawatts of the 50
Megawatt proposal is below 8.5 cents/kWh, cheaper than a third
of Crete's fossil fuel electricity.

A Greenpeace report released today "Plugging into the sun -
kickstarting the solar age in Crete" demonstrates that the 50
Megawatt solar power station on Crete could catalyse a global
breakthrough in commercial markets "If the world builds the
equivalent of eight of these solar power stations, we can
create a $27 billion dollar market for solar PV and create
several 100.000 jobs".

"This is the type of energy investment which Governments must
now implement if we are to have any chance of avoiding dangerous
climate change and if countries are to meet their own greenhouse
gas reduction commitments" Bode said.

Negotiations for legally binding greenhouse gas reductions will
be finalised in December at a meeting of the Climate Change
Convention in Kyoto, Japan. Greenpeace is calling for a minimum
20% cut in carbon dioxide levels by 2005 on 1990 levels, and to
begin negotiations for a fossil fuel phaseout, and in
particular, a halt to new oil exploration.

Following the Government's announcement the Energy Minster will
hold a press conference to discuss other solar issues with
Greenpeace on its ship MV Sirius which is on a solar tour of
the Mediterranean. -ends-

note to editors:
The full report with a global overview of current trends and
costs in solar photovoltaic plus video footage and stills are
available from Greenpeace International

Has any body got any idea about what has happened with this project?

I would not be surprised if it has been cancelled because as you have read in the article above, the money grabbers of Enron were to play an important role in this development. I believe that you know that Enron is bankrupt energy giant which was involved a few years ago in the most prolific accounting scandal in the world - ever. The likes of George W. Bush and Dick Chenney had important ties with that filthy company.

Greek leader to make Turkey visit

Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis has accepted an invitation to visit Turkey, underlining closer ties.

It will be the first official visit by a serving Greek head of government for more than 40 years.

It was confirmed as Mr Karamanlis and Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan met at the common border to launch the construction of a joint gas pipeline.

The project is designed to transport Caspian and Central Asian natural gas to Europe and be operational next year.

The pipeline will stretch for 300km (186 miles) between the two countries, most of it on Turkish soil.

The project is estimated to cost less than $18m.

Both leaders stressed its historic significance.

It is symbolic of what both countries see as an end to years of deep mutual distrust, says the BBC's Jonny Dymond in Istanbul.

Former foes

Less than 10 years ago, the two countries came close to war.

Each nation was born under the occupation of the other. Forced population exchanges between the two left a legacy of bitterness, our correspondent says.

There are still disputes over air space and territorial waters.

Many in Greece would also like to see the Orthodox Church, which is based in Istanbul, freed from some of the restrictions of the Turkish state.

But last year, Mr Erdogan paid an official visit to Athens for the first time in 16 years.

The last Greek prime minister to visit Turkey in an official capacity was Constantinos Karamanlis, the uncle of the present premier, in 1959, reports the AFP news agency.
Turkish, Greek PM inaugurate construction of key gas pipeline

3 July 2005

IPSALA BORDER CROSSING, Turkey - The Turkish and Greek prime ministers met on Sunday on a bridge across the river that divides their countries to launch a joint construction project to connect rich natural gas fields in the Caspian and Central Asia to energy-hungry markets in Europe.

The project is also a sign that relations between the two bitter historical rivals is warming.

The 300-kilometer (186-mile) pipeline from Bursa in Turkey to Komotini in Greece is expected to be operational in 2006, and will later be extended to Italy as part of an extensive pipeline initiative known as the Southern Europe Gas Ring Project.

The Greek-Turkish pipeline is expected to carry 11.5 billion cubic meters (405 billion cubic feet) of gas per year once connections are made to other planned pipelines, and as demand for Caspian gas - an alternative energy source to the politically volatile Middle East - expands in coming years.

The pipeline should also help diversify resources at a time when oil and gas prices are soaring.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Costas Caramanlis of Greece met at the middle of a bridge over the Meric River - which is called the Evros River in Greece and serves as a border between the two countries - to formally launch construction for the pipeline.

A Greek boy and a Turkish boy exchanged flags.

“This pipeline is connecting two countries and two people together,” Caramanlis said. “But most important of all, it is the first and key link in the Southern Europe Gas Ring Project.”

The pipeline “is important not just the two countries but for also the countries beyond both ends of the pipeline,” said Leo Drollas, chief economist at the Center for Global Energy Studies in London.

Turkey in recent years have been trying to expand its role as an energy conduit, connecting Europe to the oil and gas riches of the Caspian and Central Asia.

In May, the presidents of Georgia, Turkey and Azerbaijan opened a pipeline that will transport up to 1 million barrels a day of Caspian oil and gas through the southern Turkish port of Ceyhan.

The Baku-Ceyhan pipeline as well as the pipeline inaugurated Sunday help broaden supplies and are also significant because they bring Caspian oil and gas to the West without going through Russia, which has been an aim of the United States.

“Turkey is a bridge between Europe and rich (oil and gas) resources in the Caspian region and the southern Mediterranean, when the diversification of oil and gas resources in the European energy market is in question,” Erdogan said.

Both leaders referred to improving relations between their countries.

“This (project) will help strengthen our friendship and put an end to speculation” about Greek-Turkish ties, Erdogan said.

Caramanlis said, “This is a very important development which shows both countries can cooperate like never before.”

NATO allies, Greece and Turkey have been at odds over the war-divided island of Cyprus, as well as over airspace and sea boundaries in the Aegean.

Greek and Turkish diplomats have held regular meetings in an effort to resolve their disputes, and Greece, a member of the European Union since 1981, has become one of the most vocal supporters of Turkey’s own contentious EU bid, believing that relations between the two neighbors can only improve as Turkey becomes more attuned to European norms.
Προμηθέα υπάρχει και το αντίστοιχο thread στο τουρκικό forum , ρίξε μια ματιά και εκεί! :)
Από ότι είδα και ο γεροπλάτανος έχει δημοσιεύσει τα σχετικά , θα του στείλω ένα PM να τα κάνει και εδώ post.
that's what I call great news :eek:kay: I hope continuing close relations reach higher point and advance more with such events.
Skaros, nai to eida phile. Alla den kano post sto forum afto. I have my reasons.

IMO a true peace can be achieved through the convergence of interests between the 2 nations. Economic especially. States are more inclined to logic and moderation when there their interests depend on it.
Prometheus. when are you converting to Fenerbahce?

I will give you 1000s of Gyros. ;)

Prometheus, you are correct. But is this a "true" peace or friendship? All such a business co-operation achieves is what you state: an increase in logic and moderation since the two countries' interests depend on it. However, does such a project change people's attitudes about eachother or the vast cultural differences that exist between them? I think the only way for a true friendship to develop is for tourism to increase between the two countries. That way, people get to see how their neighbors live and a trust slowly builds.
The Greek Association of RES Electricity Producers

As the energy market in Greece moves swiftly toward full deregulation, the private sector is responding with dynamic interest. Dozens of new players are now actively part of what promises to be one of the most growth-oriented sectors during the next decade—energy. Electricity from renewable energy sources will increasingly be part of the national energy balance and investors are eyeing a wide variety of opportunities.

The Greek Association of RES Electricity Producers (GAREP), a private, non-profit organization that was founded in March 1997, has more than 60 Greek and foreign companies as members, which own and operate about 40 wind parks totaling more than 260 MW of installed capacity.

Members are companies that have made RES investments in Greece or have obtained administrative licenses for implementing RES investments in the immediate future.

According to Dr. Nick Vassilakos, Vice President of the European Renewable Energies Association (EREF) and Senior Adviser to GAREP, “The Association, through its 8-year intense activisation in the RES sector in Greece, has accumulated a tremendous amount of technical/financial know-how, practical experience and legal/administrative expertise, and has established strong and effective working relations with the pertinent Ministries and public organizations, at the central, regional, prefectural and local level. All this accumulated knowledge and problem-solving capabilities are constantly being shared among GAREP member companies, both Greek and international, and represent a wealth of top-level information, which is valuable to any foreign company that wishes to invest in the rapidly growing RES sector in Greece and to join the Association.”

As an industry association, GAREP represents its members before domestic and international authorities and organizations in an effort to promote members' interests and develop professional relationships.

GAREP is an active participant in policy recommendations to the government, by encouraging the most suitable legal framework to promote and exploit Renewable Energy Sources. In addition, GAREP makes specific recommendations toward a healthy market environment within the RES sector and is closely involved in applying codes of ethical commercial behavior.

Within GAREP are committees that deal with institutional matters that interest members in their interface with public and private organizations and with public authorities including the Public Power Corporation (PPC), the Center for Renewable Energy Sources (CRES), the Greek Forum for the promotion of Renewable Energy Sources (ELFORES), the Regulatory Authority for Energy (RAE), the Greek Transmission System Operator (GTSO), the Ministry of Development (YPAN) and others.

5-7 % of the needs of the city of Patras will be covered by the production of the new wind energy project on the mount Panachaiko (~1900m highest peak)

Κατά πλειοψηφία εγκρίθηκε από το Νομαρχιακό Συμβούλιο Αχαΐας, η επέκταση του Αιολικού Πάρκου, που κατασκευάζεται σε περιοχή του Παναχαϊκού όρους, με την τοποθέτηση επιπλέον 16 ανεμογεννητριών, πέραν των 41 που είχαν ήδη εγκριθεί.

Σύμφωνα με όσα ακούστηκαν στη συνεδρίαση, η επένδυση αποσκοπεί στην παραγωγή 12 εκατομμυρίων Κιλοβατώρων ετησίως, που αντιστοιχούν στο 5% - 7% των αναγκών της Πάτρας σε ηλεκτρικό ρεύμα, ενώ σημαντικά θα είναι τα ανταποδοτικά οφέλη για τους δήμους της Πάτρας και του Ρίου, αφού θα λαμβάνουν το 2% επί του τζίρου της επιχείρησης.

Ο Καθηγητής του Πανεπιστημίου Πατρών και Νομαρχιακός Σύμβουλος Αττικής, Δημοσθένης Αγορής, υποστήριξε πως το υπό κατασκευή Αιολικό Πάρκο, μόνο οφέλη μπορεί να προσδώσει στην περιοχή, παρά τις ανησυχίες που εξέφρασαν κάτοικοι της περιοχής και εκπρόσωποι περιβαλλοντικών οργανώσεων.

Vestas receives order for 41 units of V52-850 kW wind turbines for Greece

The Vestas Group has received an order for 41 units of V52-850 kW wind turbines for a project located near the town of Patras, on the Peloponnese in Greece.

The order has been placed by EOLIKI Panachaikou S.A., a company whose main investor and shareholder is CESA HELLAS, S.A. a Greek subsidiary of the Spanish company Corporación Eólica CESA, SA, which owns and operates several wind farms in Spain.

The order is for a turnkey project including a 5-year warranty, service and maintenance agreement. Delivery of the wind power plant will begin in July 2005 and commercial operation is scheduled to take place during the first quarter of 2006.

The new Greek government has announced energy as an area of priority, which among others is expected to make the permitting process easier,” says Ditlev Engel, President and CEO of Vestas Wind Systems A/S and continues: “The development in Greece is positive and the Panachaikou project indicates that also foreign investors like CESA S.A. are interested in the Greek market”.

Development minister inaugurates windpower park in the Peloponnese

Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas on Friday inaugurated a windpower park in the prefect of Argolida, in the Peloponnese.

The windpower park is the first integrated such programme in the Peloponnese region and it took around 18 months to be completed. The park includes 12 winpower generators and will have a production capacity of 70 million KW. Energy produced by the park will be distributed to Public Power Corporation's electricity grid in the country.

The Greek minister, in his inauguration speech, said it was a remarkable project for the region that would benefit the country as a whole. "The government is committed to earmark funds from a Fourth Community Support Framework for the development of Greek regions," Sioufas said.

A Development ministry's plan to deregulate the country's electricity, natural gas and bio-fuel markets aims to secure 20 percent of energy needs from alternative energy sources by 2010.
