Greek power utility Public Power Corporation has launched Europe’s second hybrid renewable energy park, combining wind and hydraulic energy with energy storage, and Grid Master Control System solutions, on the Aegean island of Ikaria. The 6.9 MW project has been implemented by PPC Renewables, a subsidiary of the majority state-owned PPC. The first European hybrid renewable energy system had been built on El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands.

PPC Renewables has invested EUR 50 million in the project, which will secure 50% of the island’s energy needs and decrease CO2 emissions by 13,800 tonnes a year. The island has so far produced electricity in an oil-fired station.

The wind-hydro system includes a 2.7 MW wind farm, two hydropower plants with an installed capacity of 4.1 MW, a 3 MW pumping station, two water tanks, and one water reservoir.

Estimated power generation of the system is around 9.8 GW/h
