Sdoukou: We support the energy transition with energy storage projects

The Deputy Minister also referred to the new project that Greece is "running" and concerns the new vertical gas transmission corridor that will start from the southern Balkans and will reach as far as Ukraine.

"Greece is at the center of geopolitical developments in our region and thanks to the infrastructure it had in Revythoussa, it managed not only not to face the danger but also to support the energy systems of neighbouring countries", said Deputy Minister of Environment and Energy Alexandra Sdoukou, at the round table on "European policy for Energy and Climate, trans-national cooperation and the green energy transition" in the context of the Balkan Energy Forum which started on Thursday in the northwestern Greece city of Kozani.

Sdoukou also referred to the new project that Greece is "running" and it concerns the new vertical gas transmission corridor that will start from the southern Balkans and will reach as far as Ukraine.

She spoke of the country's "national successes" inenergy, which in recent years resulted in "the increase in the installed power from renewable energy sources, bringing it to the second place worldwide, as well as the 1.2 billion-euros investments made in the transmission networks and of electricity distribution". Also, as an important development project of the energy transition, she mentioned "the interconnection projects of the islands with the, in parallel, abolition of all polluting diesel units operating on the islands'.

Sdoukou stated that "the government supports any kind of initiative towards the energy transition, which involves innovation projects" such as storage systems and hydrogen technologies, announcing that such investments will begin to be implemented in western Macedonia.
