Third Greek stakeholder meeting
December 3, 2014

The third Greek stakeholder meeting focused on low-carbon policies in the transport sector. This sector is responsible for a significant share of GHG emissions in Greece, together with the building and energy supply sectors, which were discussed at earlier stakeholder meetings. The event took place in Athens, Greece, on December 3, 2014, at the premises of the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change (YPEKA).

The seven main topics discussed were current progress towards compliance with the 20-20-20 targets for Greece; the effectiveness of the policies and measures included in the National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) and the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP); the feasibility of achieving the national targets for 2030 proposed in the EC Impact Assessment of the 2020-2030 climate and energy policy framework; whether the existing policies and measures included in the Greek 2050 Energy Roadmap published in 2012 are sufficient for reaching the 2030 and 2050 targets, and, if not, how these policies and measure should be enhanced/complemented; actions to maximise the penetration of clean technologies in the transport sector; how the electrification of road transport can be combined with the penetration of renewables in the power supply sector; and the current situation in Greece regarding research and development activities and the manufacturing of spare parts and accessories for transportation systems.

The meeting was attended by 19 participants representing the Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES); Moviva S.A.; Attikes Diadromes S.A.; Fullcharger S.A.; Depa S.A.; Facets S.A.; NOA; the Greek-German Chamber; the Public Power Corporation/PPC; Fortisis S.A.; YPEKA; Enteka S.A.; the Association of Greek Photovoltaics; and the Greek Association for Road Freight Transport.
