Nfs Keratea 1

  1. 1. Pilot community: KERATEA GREECE Population: 13,246 inhabitants Area: 129 km2 Address: Athinon Souniou 37 Zip code: 19001 Phone: +30 22990 69240 Fax: +30 22990 67900 Mayor Stavros Iatrou e-mail: info@keratea.gr website: www.keratea.gr Keratea belongs geomorphologically and administratively in the South-East department of Attica, known as Layreotiki. Keratea lies about 41km South-East from Athens and consists of 58 settlements. The municipality occupies ground that is basically mountainous in all its extent. The total length of Keratea's coastlines is 21 Km. The older archaeological discoveries which testify the existence of people in the region of Keratea are dated from the Mycenean era (1600 - 1100 BC). Up until the last few decades, Keratea was mainly an agricultural region, but nowadays it is developing a strong service industry as it belongs to the Greater Athens Metropolitan Area. Its location along new Attica road, its proximity to the new Athens airport and the important harbour of Lavrion, are creating many socioeconomic and employment opportunities for Keratea. A part of the population is still rural. The area now faces many changes and opportunities but current plans, both regional and local, are not comprehensive enough to ensure that these are nurtured and managed to maximum benefit. Renewable Energy Sources Now: The Greek Centre for Renewable Energy Sources & Saving (CRES) has developed its own 3 MW wind farm which is situated in Layreotiki, SE Attica (Municipality of Keratea). Future: New RES applications (eg. PV installations). Rational Use of Energy Now: There are some existing examples of bioclimatic buildings in the region (private). Future: Energy saving and efficiency measures (focus mainly in the building sector).
