Greek energy technocrats make themselves available to gov’t

The Greek Energy Forum, a group of UK-based Greek energy technocrats sharing common interest in the broader energy industry in Greece and Southeastern Europe, has published an article offering proposals to the Greek government on how to go about developing the country’s energy policies.

The proposals focus on measures concerning energy savings, liberalization of the  electricity and gas markets, market mechanisms for the renewable energy source (RES) sector, cooperation with leading enterprises, development of hydrocarbon research, and promotion of bilateral energy trade.

“We believe in the undeniable comparative advantages of the Greek energy sector. We have full faith in the forces of healthy competition and strongly support private-sector initiatives and entrepreneurship,” the GEF group noted. “We highlight the need for the independence of institutions charged with the supervision and proper management of the energy market,” it continued.
