With these Observatories, De Gaulle Fleurance shares its expertise and feeds the public debate on issues as important as ecological and societal transitions.

The development of RES-PPAs legal framework in Greece is still under development although certain number of corporate PPAs have been signed during the last two years.
Greece has adopted the National Recovery and Resilience Plan 2.0 approved by Ecofin by virtue of its Executive Decision no. 10152/06.07.2021 and in accordance with
EU Regulation 2021/241. The Recovery and Resilience Fund which was founded in Greece by virtue of Law 4822/2021, aims at both the lending as well as the funding of
projects among which Renewable Energy Sources (RES) projects and PPAs operating on the basis of the loan agreement and the funding agreement concluded between
Greece and the European Commission.

The Fund has already provided funding for PPAs, e.g. the investment with respect to the construction of five photovoltaic projects of a capacity of 200 MW in West Macedonia by RWE and PPC through their common company METON ENERGY
which in turn has signed PPAs of 10 or 15 years with third parties.
