The 637.78 MW capacity has been proposed to be built in the form of 8 projects. Ceiling tariffs for the tender are capped at €64.72 ($72.87) per MWh with minimum bid for solar power projects being 20 MW and 50 MW for wind projects.

As per the auction schedule, April 15, 2019 is when the electronic auction is supposed to take place.

In the first renewable energy auction in Greece, the country awarded more than 277 MW of capacity with solar bagging 106 MW (see First Greek RE Auction Awards 106 MW PV).
