Solar Energy in Crete

"Crete is one of the most favourable and promising Greek regions for the development of renewable energies". Centre for Renewable Energy Sources, advisors to the Greek Government, March 1969.

Crete represents a major opportunity for positive change in Europe. Electricity consumption is increasing and a proposed new oil-fired power station would cause a 50 per cent increase in CO2 emissions in Crete from the electricity sector.

However, solar technologies could be deployed today that would not only halt further expansion of CO2 but replace existing polluting energy sources, and provide a more efficient electricity service to consumers in Crete.

Greenpeace has proposed a practical plan for a fossil fuel-free Crete but the Greek state utility, the Public Power Corporation (PPC), opposes these options.
