IPTO Says Greece is Ready to Launch Offshore Wind Parks

Greece’s Independent Power Transmission Operator (IPTO) has secured the required electrical capacity of 2GW to facilitate the launch of the offshore wind parks in the country, local daily Kathimerini reported.

Offshore wind parks are critical to achieving a central goal of Greece’s energy policy which is to transform the country from the fossil fuel importer it has been historically into a clean energy exporter, Kathimerini quoted IPTO’s CEO Manousos Manousakis as saying.

IPTO’s mission is to supply Greece with power in a reliable, efficient, and environmentally-friendly manner, while promoting the development of free competition in the country’s electricity market.
