Ai Stratis to become Greece’s first ‘green’ island


The small Greek island of Ai Stratis, which has only 200 inhabitants and is located in the northern part of the Aegean, is expected to become the first island in Greece to be considered completely ‘Green’. 

The island will be powered exclusively by electric and thermal energy from renewables and this small project will be used as a guide for larger projects in the future. 

As part of this transition, the plan calls for the small Public Power Corporation (PPC) power plant on the island to stop operating in order to have full energy autonomy. 

The Environment and Energy Ministry granted a unified licence to the island to install a hybrid power plant for the production of electricity using wind and solar, along with the use of accumulators for the storage of electricity. 

The licence also foresees the installation of a station for the production of thermal energy as well as a network for the distribution and supply of the thermal energy.
