Highlights

  • Greece aims to cut GHG emissions by 55% in 2030, by 80% in 2040, and to reach net zero emissions by 2050.
  • To overcome its reliance on lignite, Greece is developing gas-fired power plants and renewables.
  • PPC dominates the power sector with 49% of power generation.
  • Helpe accounts for 65% of the refining capacity.
  • Italian companies control the gas market.
  • Renewables accounted for 48% of the power mix in 2022. Lignite is disappearing from power generation.
  • Greece is fully dependent on imports for its natural gas and oil supplies.
  • Electricity prices drastically increased in 2022 (+40% for industries and +24% for households), despite subsidy mechanisms.
  • Per capita energy consumption is 40% below the EU average.
  • The share of oil in total energy consumption reached 52% (2022).
  • The closure of lignite-fired power plants was postponed due to supply risk following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
  • The country is focusing on the development of gas and solar capacity (44 GW of solar under development).

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Environment and Energy (MoEE) coordinates the energy policy and controls public companies. The General Secretariat for Energy and Mineral Resources (MoEE department) is responsible for implementing energy policy in sectors including power, oil, gas, renewables, and energy efficiency.

  • Energy Companies

    Oil:

    Helpe (Hellenic Petroleum,35.5% HRADF, 45.5% Paneuropean Oil and Industrial Holdings) is the national oil company. In 2019, Greece delayed the sale of 50.1% in Helpe (35.5% of HRADF and 14.6% of Paneuropean Oil stakes) as the shortlisted buyers, a consortium led by Glencore Energy and another led by Vitol, failed to submit binding bids before deadline.

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    Greece's hydrocarbon resources are negligible (despite recent exploration activities launched in 2012): oil reserves of 1 Mt and gas reserves of 1 bcm (end of 2022). It has considerable lignite resources (2.9 Gt). The hydro potential is estimated at 15 TWh/year. The country has a high wind potential, but very little of it is exploited.

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    Electricity prices have been increasing since 2019 (by 13%/year for households and by 29%/year for industry). Previously, prices had been decreasing slightly since 2014 (-1.4%/year for households and -4.2%/year for industry until 2019), following steady growth since 2000. In 2022, electricity prices for households increased by 24% and for industry by 40%.

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita is 1.9 toe in 2022 (40% below the EU average), including around 4 500 kWh of electricity (20% below the EU average).
