In­ter­con­nec­tion of Crete with Attica pow­ers ahead

Kathimerini English - - Business & Finance -

The En­vi­ron­ment, En­ergy and Cli­mate Change Min­istry yes­ter­day an­nounced the be­gin­ning of the pro­ce­dure for the is­land of Crete’s in­ter­con­nec­tion with Greece’s con­ti­nen­tal power grid. It fol­lows the com­ple­tion of a study which showed that this so­lu­tion makes more sense fi­nan­cially com­pared with the de­vel­op­ment of new au­ton­o­mous pow- er pro­duc­tion plants on Crete. The in­ter­con­nec­tion will also al­low the ab­sorp­tion by the na­tional grid of greater quan­ti­ties of elec­tric­ity from re­new­able en­ergy sources pro­duced on Crete. The study pro­posed Attica and the area of Ko­rakia, near Rethymno on Crete, as the best points for the in­ter­con­nec­tion.
