Photovoltaics (PV) is the conversion of light into electricity using semiconducting materials that exhibit the photovoltaic effect. A photovoltaic system employs solar modules, each comprising a number of solar cells, which generate electrical power. PV installations may be ground-mounted, rooftop mounted, wall mounted or floating. The mount may be fixed, or use a solar tracker to follow the sun across the sky. Solar PV has specific advantages as an energy source: once installed, its operation generates no pollution and no greenhouse gas emissions, it shows simple scalability in respect of power needs and silicon has large availability in the Earth’s crust.
VΕΝ Energy owns, operates, constructs and/ or evaluates photovoltaic plants in several regions in Greece.
Wind power or wind energy is the use of air flow through wind turbines to provide the mechanical power to turn electric generators. Wind power is a sustainable and renewable alternative to burning fossil fuels and has a much smaller impact on the environment. Wind farms consist of many individual wind turbines, which are connected to the electric power transmission network.
VΕΝ Energy already owns and operates wind farms in several regions in Greece while is developing wind farms in South-Eastern and Central Europe.
Hydropower plants capture the energy of falling water to generate electricity. A turbine converts the kinetic energy of falling water into mechanical energy. Then a generator converts the mechanical energy from the turbine into electrical energy.
VΕΝ Energy is developing a number of small run of river hydroelectric projects in various regions of Greece.
A battery energy storage solution offers new application flexibility and unlocks new business value across the energy value chain, from conventional power generation, transmission and distribution, and renewable power to industrial and commercial sectors. Energy storage supports diverse applications including firming renewable production, stabilizing the electrical grid, controlling energy flow, optimizing asset operation and creating new revenue.
VΕΝ Energy through its solid collaboration with leading energy storage system manufacturers has the experience and capacity to implement solar PV and energy storage projects from inception, to final development and construction.
