Wind Power

Wind Power is the conversion of wind energy into electricity, using wind turbines.
Wind Power is a solar power derivative, as its power originates from the sun. Wind power depends upon wind velocity and density. Its utilization possibilities depend on the particular wind characteristics of each area, such as, wind direction, velocity and density, as well as peak values and turbulence. Areas whose mean annual velocity exceeds 10 m/s are generally considered as high wind potential areas. The sites selected for wind farm installation must present mean annual velocity in excess of 6 m/s. The above values are only indicative and may change due to technological improvements as well as particular market conditions. Given that the largest part of RES power production in Greece originates from wind power, it is worth noting that this power option is technologically mature financially competitive and friendly to the environment. It is an inexhaustible source of energy, which contributes to the prevention of greenhouse gas emissions that damage the world climate. Operation of a typical 10 MW wind farm can provide the annual equivalent electric power for 7.250 households, saving the equivalent of 2.580 tons of fuel oil. In Greece, a typical 750 kW wind generator will produce 2.25 millions kWh on average, preventing the emission of 2.250 tons of carbon dioxide. It other terms it contributes to the environment the annual equivalent of 3.000 acres of forest or 150.000 trees.

Hydro Electric Power

Hydroelectric power is electricity generated the hydrological cycle, through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water, also dependent upon solar power.
Hydroelectric plants are powered by the hydrological cycle, also dependent upon solar power. Small hydroelectric projects not linked to large water basins to regulate water flow (and their operation as a consequence) require a minimum secure water flow with limited seasonal variations. PPC Renewables operates 15 Small Hydroelectric Power Plants (SHP), and has under construction 2 more. At the same time 7 more projects were awarded with a production permit.

Solar Power

Solar Power is the generation of electricity from sunlight.
Sun is an inexhaustible source of power, which can be, directly or indirectly, altered in electric power. The photovoltaic systems may turn the solar power into electric, due to the photovolotaic phenomenon. In a country with long periods of sunshine, such as Greece, the solar power is an inexhaustible energy source. The solar thermal systems utilize solar power turning it firstly into thermal and then into electric power. The high solar potential in Greece renders the utilization of the above technologies particularly productive. PPC Renewables utilizes the sun power in order to produce electric power via the two P/V Parks. These Parks are located on the islands of Kithnos and Sifnos and they are in operation. In fact, the PP in Kithnos was created in 1983 and it was the first Park of this kind in Europe. The total installed capacity of the PPC Renewables Photovoltaic Parks is 700kw. PPC Renewables is about to develop solar power projects of great importance. The contribution of the PP to the environment will be invaluable, since 70,000 MWh will be produced annually and the emission of 70,000 tones of c02, 680 tones of so2 and 131 tones of NOx will be avoided. Furthermore, the Park may be considered as the first step of Megalopolis to be nominated as the RES power centre in Greece. Moreover, PPCR plans to develop P/V parks in Ptolemaida (200 MW), in Stratos SHPP (9,7 MW). In cooperation with ETVA VIPE the development of plants of total capacity 34,7 MW in various industrial areas is planned. Finally, the company is about to install small P/V plants on roofs of buildings.

Geothermal Power

Geothermal power comes from the heat emitted by the Earth’s core and, on the timescale of humanity at least, can be considered inexhaustible.
Geothermal power, or else the heat emitted by the earth’s core, is utilized since 1904 in order to produce “green” power. The key for the production of the power lies on the geothermal fluids, such as, underground sea or other kind of water tanks. These fluids are heated in high temperatures, often exceeded the 350 C, because of their contact with the already heated, from the lava, which is in the Earth’s core, rocks. The geothermal fluids extraction, supported by the current advanced technological methods, allows not only the electric power production, but also their use for the sea water desalination, the heating and the refrigeration of the buildings, the greenhouse heating, the fish farming etc. Today, the total capacity of the installed geothermoelectric units surpasses the 9,000 MW, rendering the Geothermy a reliable, available and environmentally friendly alternative source of energy. The development of Geothermy depends upon specific factors, such as, the depth, the geothermal reservoir characteristics, the composition and the feeding of the geothermal fluid etc. The production of energy from Geothermy is one of the priorities of PPC’s business plan. A great experience has been inherited from PPC as the later conducted Geothermy source research in 1973 and this experience has been an invaluable guide for development in the sector.

Hybrid Systems

Combining different renewable sources, utilizing the power storage.
Hybrid systems of power generation are based on the combination of wind and hydroelectric power. The innovative combination of these two natural resources, for which PPCR invested heavily in scientific and feasibility studies, consists a credible solution to the major issue of storage and controlled grid of the generated power . The Ikaria Hybrid Power Plant is currently under construction by PPCR, the first of its kind in Europe. The project comprises the Stravokountoura Wind Farm, , Proespera and Kato Proespera SHPP's

Bio Energy

Παράγεται από τη μετατροπή της χημικής ενέργειας που περιέχεται στα οργανικά κατάλοιπα.
Η ενέργεια που παράγεται από υλικά οργανικής προέλευσης, όπως υπολείμματα γεωργικών καλλιεργειών και δασικών εργασιών, παραπροϊόντα γεωργικών βιομηχανιών, ζωικά απόβλητα, το οργανικό τμήμα των αστικών απορριμμάτων και τις ενεργειακές καλλιέργειες. Η βιομάζα στην Ελλάδα χαρακτηρίζεται από πολυμορφία πρώτων υλών, με τοπικό χαρακτήρα συγκέντρωσης, και μπορεί να έχει πολλαπλές χρήσεις ανάλογα με το είδος και τις δυνατότητες τελικής αξιοποίησης της (παραγωγή θερμικής κι ηλεκτρικής ενέργειας, υγρών βιοκαυσίμων, κ.ά). Το είδος κι η προέλευση των διαφόρων πρώτων υλών βιομάζας συνδυάζεται με μεγάλο αριθμό αγροτικών δραστηριοτήτων (συγκομιδή υπολειμμάτων καλλιεργειών όπως το άχυρο σιτηρών, τα στελέχη του βαμβακιού, υλοτομίες δασικών συμπλεγμάτων, διάθεση αποβλήτων ζωοτροφικών μονάδων, κ.ά.) καθώς και με την εισαγωγή νέων ενεργειακών καλλιεργειών στο γεωργικό σύστημα. Λόγω της άμεσης σύνδεσής της με την αγροτική παραγωγή μπορεί να αποτελέσει πηγή συμπληρωματικού εισοδήματος και δημιουργίας θέσεων εργασίας για την τοπική κοινωνία στα πλαίσια ολοκληρωμένου κι αειφόρου εθνικού και περιφερειακού σχεδιασμού. Η παραγωγή ενέργειας από βιομάζα αποτελεί έναν από τους βασικούς άξονες ανάπτυξης Ανανεώσιμων Πηγών Ενέργειας στη χώρα μας κι εντάσσεται στις προτεραιότητες του επιχειρησιακού σχεδίου της ΔΕΗ Ανανεώσιμες Α.Ε.
