‘Green future, digital networks, customer-friendly policy’ at PPC

Power utility PPC’s priorities, namely a turn to green energy, digital transformation of networks and customer orientation, were stressed by chief executive Giorgos Stassis at a Capital Link Forum in New York titled “Invest in Greece – Greece is Back”.

The key aspects of PPC’s new business plan, to soon be announced, promise the corporation’s development from market follower to leader in RES production, digitization of networks and a commercial policy focused on customer satisfaction, the PPC chief executive noted.

US investors and institutional portfolio representatives held a succession of meetings with Greek company heads at the Capital Link Forum.

PPC’s business prospects drew considerable interest given a Greek government intention to privatize the country’s distribution network through the sale of a majority stake in DEDDIE/HEDNO, a power utility subsidiary.

Investors also displayed strong interest in PPC’s plans to develop green energy partnerships.

Capital Link Forum organizers noted the turnout for this year’s Greece-themed edition was larger than in previous years.

The government’s presentation of Greece as an investment-friendly market is finding appeal among international investors.
