Press release (24/9/2014)

Electromobility is a new, very important sector of the European economy, the rapid development of which can help to create a very large number of new sustainable jobs, increasing national income, etc. in Greece and also in Europe and in tackling climate change.

Greece, in particular, must be prepared in time to create the proper charging infrastructure for electric cars, etc., a policy that requires close cooperation of all stakeholders (State, statutory bodies, local authorities, businesses, etc.).

For European electric power businesses electromobility is a “big challenge” as rapid expansion in the number of electric vehicles creates new needs and business opportunities to increase the supply of electricity, development of “smart grids”, greater use of renewable energy etc.
