A series of ambitious plans by the Greek government on energy storage begs the question: Is Greece’s ambition to become Europe’s battery? Converging environmental and financial circumstances might offer an answer.

Early last summer, the government announced an ambitious plan to issue a bid for 700 MW of battery storage capacity this Autumn. The plan is part of an energy storage policy framework aimed at boosting the country’s currently underdeveloped energy storage sector.

According to Alexandra Sdoukou, secretary general for energy and mineral resources at the Ministry of the Environment and Energy, a dedicated team was set up to work on an energy storage framework this past Summer.
