The first tender in Greece for battery energy storage will offer capacity amounting to 400 MW. The tender was already delayed, and it should be launched by June 15.
Around 200 million euros should be allocated from the Recovery and Resilience Facility for the first battery storage tender.
It is planned that the bids at the tender will be accepted by early July, with the winning bids expected to be announced in August.
In 2022, Greece received approval from the European Commission to allocate around 340 million euros for the construction and operation of up to 900 MW of grid-connected energy storage systems. It was then announced that developers would be awarded contracts by the end of 2023 and would be required to bring the proposed facilities online by the end of 2025.
