High performance for photovoltaics in 2020
The second best performance of all time was recorded in 2020 by the photovoltaic market, according to data from the Association of Companies in the industry (SEF).
780 systems with a total capacity of 913 MW were installed.
Specifically, last year, 780 systems with a total capacity of 913 megawatts were installed, raising the total installed capacity of photovoltaics in the country to 3,742 megawatts. Historically, performance was highest only in 2013, when 1043 megawatt power plants were installed.
According to the same data:
-In 2020, the market for self-generating systems almost doubled compared to the previous year, nevertheless remaining at levels significantly lower than the country's potential. More specifically, 17 MW of new systems with energy offset or virtual energy offset were installed, raising the total capacity of this category to 51 MW, with commercial systems covering more than 90% of this power and home systems lagging far behind.
-In 2020 the photovoltaic market maintained (in the midst of a pandemic) 42,200 full-time equivalent positions (direct, indirect and consequential).
-The energy efficiency of photovoltaics in Greece was set last year at 1485 kilowatt hours per installed kilowatt.
