Greece will strengthen its energy security thanks to renewable energies
Greece hopes to produce 80% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030, Energy and Environment Minister Kostas Skrekas said on Thursday (November 10th).
|Athens remained focused on switching to renewable energy sources.|
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.
“We believe there are prospects of finding significant reserves“, he added.
