Greece, DEDDIE to bolster distribution network in order to accommodate new RES capacity

, SEE Energy News

Greek electricity distribution system operator DEDDIE, a subsidiary of Public Power Corporation (PPC), plans to use Recovery and Resilience Facility funding to cover investments for increasing capacity at certain existing low and medium- voltage substations in order to facilitate the entry of new RES units.

It is estimated that the capacity increase at these substations will enable connections to the distribution network for new RES units with a total capacity of 1,755 MW. This represents about 40 % of the total of 4,640 MW of new RES units envisaged by the National Energy and Climate Plan.

DEDDIE plans to invest some 30 million euros in these projects, of which 12 million euros will be provided via EU funding. All projects should be completed by the end of 2025.
