In the current National Energy and Climate Plan, which has been revised in light of the energy crisis that began to manifest itself in April, the target was set at 65%.

The minister stressed that Athens remains focused on switching to renewable energy sources, biomethane and green hydrogen production.

With natural gas being a transitional fuel until decarbonization, Greece has stepped up hydrocarbon exploration, hoping to extract gas for the first time in 2028, he said.
