The Greek Plan for the Electricity Interconnections and EU’s Contribution

ATHENS – The implementation of the proposals for the upgrading of the trans-European energy networks that tabled at the EU Summit Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis will bring geopolitical, economic and energy benefits to Greece. The proposal focuses on the strengthening of the interconnections on the axis North-South in order to develop as much as possible the dynamic of the renewable energy sources in EU and specifically of the high wind potential of the North and the advantage of the South in solar energy.

Greece has already tabled a proposal for direct electricity interconnection with Austria and South Germany with a wire via Albania and the Western Balkans. As Environment and Energy Minister Kostas Skrekas has underlined there is need for green energy in South Germany and the proposal initially foresees the transfer of 3 GW with the perspective to increase it to 9 GW in the future.
