High Level Energy Conference


The Helios project and the role of energy for Greek and European growth


Günther Oettinger will be in Athens on 3rd April to attend the High Level conference "Renewable Energy and Infrastructure Development in South-eastern Europe and the Helios Project”.



The cost efficient production of renewables will result in new growth and employment opportunities in Europe. Helios in particular will boost the Greek economy, helping the country overcome the current crisis.

Günther Oettinger said: "Solar Photovoltaic technologies present good prospects in terms of higher efficiency and lower cost. This is why I fully support the Helios project: it makes renewable energy a key area for growth in Greece, while facilitating northern countries' imports of solar energy. It is a good example of EU solidarity and it will impact positively the European market".
