Coal, on its way out – Greece’s plans to phase out

2020-9-16  Shutting down lignite fired power plants no doubt is an effective measure to significantly reduce the country’s emissions, however the main driver for the phase out is the economic situation: With an increasing carbon price under the EU ETS, not only old and inefficient but all lignite fired power plants are losing many millions of Euros every year and are becoming a big burden for the state-owned power utility PPC and, eventually, taxpayers in Greece. Attempts to privatise lignite
