Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis inaugurated the largest development project on Renewable Energy Sources, which gives Greece a new impetus for green growth while supporting local society, at Kafirea in Evia. In his address, the Greek prime minister stood by the government’s plans regarding “green” development and the transition to renewable energies, while committing to simplifying the licensing procedures for large projects.

Mr. Mitsotakis pointed out that the project is in line with the three central pillars of government policy: replacing lignite with milder forms of production, liberalizing the market to create jobs and cheaper energy and limiting the economic “bleeding” caused by electricity imports.

The large wind farm will meet the energy needs of 130,000 households and reduce lignite burning in our country by 450,000 tons per year, thus significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
