Review of the Greek Energy Sector; Market Analysis and Recommendations

This is a sensitive period for the Greek energy sector, since on the one hand, national elections offer a chance for the realignment of policy regardless of the ruling party, while on the other hand, a series of crucial issues are ongoing with repercussions for the future of the market. Major changes are coming due to the liberalization of the Power and Gas market, ambitious privatization processes of state-controlled energy companies and the target model objectives set by the European institutions and significant investment potential is on the horizon.

Based on the above, HAEE decided it would be appropriate to issue this publication and proceed with an in-depth analysis of everything that is happening today in the energy sector, how these are connected to wider trends and also, the challenges that the new government will have to face. Furthermore, HAEE includes its own recommendations for each one of the sectors addressed in this policy paper (the Energy Exchange, the Electricity Market, the  Renewables, the Natural Gas, the Energy Efficiency and the Oil and Refining).

The Excise Duty on Natural Gas when used as Feedstock

Natural gas is the fastest growing form of primary energy worldwide, given its advantages compared to other forms of energy and its pivotal contribution to the direction of sustainable development. It is an essential element for the promotion of the European Energy Policy and at the same time, the bridge for the transition from conventional to renewable energy forms. Additionally natural gas is the most efficient and sustainable raw material for ammonia/ fertilizers production.

A considerable positive effect on GDP growth derives from the particular abolishment of the excise duty on natural gas when used as feedstock. The precise increase attributable to the growth in domestic demand is projected to eventually result in a GDP rise of € 754 million. An additional positive feature of the complete abolition in natural gas would be towards the impact on employment, which is estimated to increase by a total number of 12.500 jobs. In conclusion, nowadays that industrial production seems to progressively recover, the aim should be towards promoting and encouraging production, rather than burden it with taxes and levies that cannot be covered anymore.
