Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Greece’s wind-powered electricity capacity in Greece rose more the 23 percent last year, the Hellenic Wind Energy Association said.

France’s EDF SA was the biggest producer of wind energy in Greece last year, accounting for 272.03 megawatts or almost 17 percent of total production, according to the statement. Spain’s Iberdrola Renovables SA was the second-largest producer with 250.68 megawatts and Greece’s Terna Energy SA was third with 241.52 megawatts.

Vestas Wind Systems A/S accounted for 49 percent of wind turbines installed in Greece in 2011, Enercon GmbH for 22 percent, Siemens AG for 12 percent, Gamesa Corp Technologica SA for 10 percent and Nordex SE for 5 percent, the association said.
