New report by The Green Tank describes the challenges that young people in Western Macedonia are facing in the transition to the post-lignite era and stresses the significance of their inclusion in the governance mechanism and funding.
Developments on energy communities in Greece over the last six months, with a particular focus on lignite regions
New analysis by The Green Tank examines Greece’s potential to reduce its fossil gas consumption in the next eight months in order to contribute to the common European effort.
Whilst in the midst of an intense energy and economic crisis due to the explosion of fossil fuel prices and the threat of a fossil gas supply disruption from Russia, many European countries, including Greece, have increased coal mining and are considering lifetime extensions of coal power plants. At the same time, the European Union (EU) needs to accelerate the achievement of its climate goals, thus shielding Member States from the damaging effects of the much more intense climate crisis,
New report by The Green Tank presents specific examples of projects contributing to the sustainable transformation of coal regions across Europe.
Renewables can achieve a much deeper reduction of Greece’s dependence on Russian fossil gas compared to the lifetime extension of lignite plants, both in the short-term as well as in the medium- and long-term, as shown in the new analysis by The Green Tank.
Joint Press Release. The earlier a country’s coal-phase out commitment, the higher its share of a Just Transition Fund for the Western Balkan countries, finds a model-based analysis by The Green Tank and CEE Bankwatch Network, published today.
An increased interest for the development of energy communities in the lignite regions of the country, although predominantly for profit, reports the new review published by the think tank The Green Tank.
