Infographic: The Greek state-owned utility (PPC) continued to invest nearly €4 billion a year in electricity from fossil fuels.

This country brief and accompanying data sheet compiles publicly available information on subsidies to fossil fuel production and consumption in Greece between 2014 and 2016.

The study shows that Greece is falling behind in meeting its commitment to phase-out this support by 2020, as pledged by the European Union and its Member States.

This is a background briefing paper to the report Phase-out 2020: monitoring Europe's fossil fuel subsidies and provides a baseline to track progress on the phase-out of fossil fuel subsidies in Greece as part of the global transition to clean energy.
