Helios Project To Be Introduced in Greek Parliament

A draft law on the Helios photovoltaic project for the production and export of electricity will be tabled in parliament within the next few weeks, Environment, Energy & Climate Change Minister George Papaconstantinou announced on Wednesday after meeting with European Commission JRC Institute for Energy director Giovanni De Santi.
The meeting focused on facilitating the Helios project by defining optimal locations for photovoltaic parks and energy transport lines to create an electricity supply corridor from southeastern to central Europe.
Papaconstantinou stated investments that will reinforce the production basis and create new jobs are a precondition for economic growth offering new prospects to the country and the people. He added that the Helios project is placed within this framework and enjoys the strong support of the EU.
The JRC Institute for Energy director stressed that major innovative projects with a clearly European dimension are important to the EU targets for a low-carbon economy, adding that such projects help in meeting the 2020 RES goals.
