Skrekas: Interconnections and green contracts for competitive energy prices

Environment Minister Costas Skrekas in an interview with ‘Parapolitika’ newspaper on Saturday said that the importance of strengthening competition in the electricity market through the development of international interconnections, tenders to compensate electricity producers from renewable sources and the signing of bilateral green contracts are among the tools for securing electricity at competitive prices.
He added that “in order to protect the most vulnerable households, we have extended the regulation regarding the reconnection of electricity to citizens, who are proven to be unable to pay their bills.”
Regarding the rational management of waste and water in the context of the circular economy, Skrekas pointed out that the Energy Regulatory Authority has the know-how and could extend its activity to other sectors besides energy, always in the public interest.
