New Branch Office: Energiequelle Drives Forward Activities in The Greek Wind And Solar Market

Athens, Greece - The renewable energy project developer and operations manager Energiequelle is continuing its international expansion with the opening of an office in Athens. The company has been active in Greece for several years and has now decided to establish a Greek branch.

Polydoros Pagonis, who was appointed Country Manager on November 1, has been instrumental in driving forward the preparations for the opening of the site in recent months and, according to Energiequelle, has already built up a valuable local network. He has many years of experience in the renewable energy sector and on the Greek market.

"I am delighted to be able to support Energiequelle's international growth by entering the Greek market. The country offers very good conditions for the development of renewable energies and will play an important role in the energy transition in Europe in the future," says Pagonis about the prospects for the Greek RE market.

After the crisis over a decade ago, Greece is now one of the fastest growing economies in Europe. Greece has set itself the goal of phasing out coal by 2028, reducing total greenhouse gas emissions by 55 percent by 2030 and achieving net zero by 2050.

After Germany, France, Finland, Poland and South Africa, Greece is the sixth country in which Energiequelle is represented with branches. "We have constantly analysed and examined potential in recent years and have entered three more country markets since 2020 in order to further strengthen our international business. I am convinced that we will be able to achieve our first project successes in the new countries in the near future," says Gregor Weber, Head of Project Management at Energiequelle.
