Industry outlook

IPTO has launched large projects for the interconnection of the Greek islands, to reduce costs for consumers, improve security of supply and environmental sustainability. Most Greek islands rely on expensive and polluting fuel-oil-fired plants (often close to tourist areas); currently the extra costs of running these plants is shared among all Greek consumers (4–12% of a retail consumer’s bill). The construction of interconnections should allow for the replacement of these plants with renewables and imports from the mainland, lowering both costs for consumers and carbon emissions.
