Photovoltaic energy covered 7% of electricity energy demand in Greece in 2015, ranking the country second globally in photovoltaic energy production for the third successive year, the Federation of Photovoltaic Companies announced in a report.

Yet, changes in the institutional framework (price cuts in energy purchases from the system) and the introduction of capital controls led to a significant reduction of new installations during 2015, falling to 10.3 MW, from 912 MW in 2012, 1,043 MW in 2013 and 17 MW in 2014.

Power capacity of photovoltaic units in Greece surpassed 2,600 MW in 2015,  half  of which was derived from low-power units (up to 100 kW), mainly photovoltaic units installed on rooftops.
