Greece’s PPC unveils plan to boost share of renewables, expand to other markets | Energy Transition in Europe | www.energy-cities.eu | Scoop.it
Greece’s majority state-owned power utility, Public Power Corporation (PPC), has developed its 2018-2022 strategic and business plan with the support of its advisor, envisaging the company’s expansion to foreign markets and boosting the share of renewables in its overall energy generation mix, among other matters, according to an announcement from PPC. The advisor is consulting firm McKinsey & Company, according to reports.

The document, designed to safeguard PPC’s resilience and transform it into “a modern and cutting edge utility,” calls for increasing the participation of renewable energy sources, mostly wind and solar, in the company’s generation mix by around 600 MW by 2022. It sets the target of a 20%-25% share of renewable energy sources in PPC’s total capacity by 2030-2035.

The president of KEDE, Georgios Patoulis, said that the Greek local and regional authorities intended to participate actively, by taking positions and making proposals, but also by establishing political alliances, in the project to build a new Europe.

This is an agreement which aims to send out a clear message to institutional stakeholders and policy makers on the importance of ensuring a strong and effective cohesion policy for all regions after 2020.
Referring to the shocks experienced by the European project in the wake of the economic crisis, not to mention the effect of populist policies, Mr Patoulis stressed that it was more necessary than ever to ensure a strong and efficient policy on cohesion post 2020, covering all the regions of Europe.
