Incentives for decentralised energy systems: proposals for the development of effective incentives in Greece

Α. Μ. Παπαδόπουλος, Π. Ε. Γεωργιάδης, Δημήτριος Ψωινός


The introduction of a new legislative framework for power generation by private investors provides a
good opportunity for a more efficient policy in the renewable energy sources' sector and the decentralised
energy production. However, as the example of the recently introduced Greek legislation shows, it is
necessary to establish a system of incentives, beneficiary both for the national economy and the private
investor, if renewable energy sources are to achieve the ambitious goal set by the E.U. for a 5% participation
in the primary energy production.
The results presented in the present paper are drawn from a research project, that has dealt with the
most wides read energy systems in Greece, which are to satisfactory extent representative for the Mediterterranean
area, and led to the proposal of more efficient incentives.
