Which are the peak hours Greece considers to reduce electricity from Dec 1

From December 1, Greece will have to put into effect the decisions of the Energy Ministers’ Meeting held on Friday, September 30, which provide, among other things, the goal of a mandatory 5% reduction in electricity consumption during peak hours, but also a voluntary reduction by 10% of the total consumption.

Regarding Greece, it is recalled that at the government meeting on national savings measures held last week with the participation of the Ministry of the Environment and Energy, electricity distribution network and regulator, the peak hours during which Greece must focused in order to reduce consumption were discussed.

According to the information, obtained by cnngreece,  the hours they have reached are from 09:00 to 10:00 for the morning hours and from 18:00 to 22:00 for the evening hours.

In total, that is, Greece should seek ways to reduce electricity consumption by 5 hours per day, if this hour is officially determined.

However, so far it is not know how Greece will reduce electricity consumption. With rolling power outages? Turn street lights off?

At the EU Energy Ministers meeting, it was decided that each country will be free to choose the appropriate measures with which the two goals will be achieved, from the beginning of December 2022 until March 31, 2023.

    If they do use rolling power cuts it’s not difficult to circumvent them. I have bought two deep discharge batteries, each 12V at 200 Ah, and two 12 V DC to 230 V AC inverters, each with a built in battery charger and automatic switching. As long as there is mains supply present it goes directly to the appliances and the battery is kept fully charged. When a power cut occurs the appliances are automatically switched to the inverter output and get power from the battery. I haven’t had a long enough power cut yet to fully test them but I estimate they should be good for 8 to 10 hours of power outage. One is providing power to the oil fired central heating boiler so I can keep warm and the other powers both my computer system and my TV system so I have entertainment. They are effectively like a UPS but with hours of support instead of a few minutes.
