The Green Tank in collaboration with the Heinrich Boll Stiftung Greece are publishing a feature on the contemporary Greek energy policy. Part of this feature is the article by Nikos Mantzaris on lignite phase out and the Just Transition.
The article was first published in the foundation’s Heinrich Boll Stiftung Greece webpage on 25 January 2021 under the title (in Greek):
Lignite phase out and Just Transition: causes, threats and challenges
The article describes what caused the decision for the complete phase-out lignite by 2028 (which is the deadline), the reasons for the declining role of the share of lignite in Greece’s energy mix in the last decade, the threat of locking- in in fossil gas and the challenge of just transition in the lignite regions in Greece.
