An island with natural borders just the sea and the air.
From 1974 its area has been limited further by a ‘green
line’. To date, Cyprus depends exclusively on the electric
power it generates from fuel imports. The 1200 MW output
is barely enough for the island’s needs. Each power generating
station is vital and irreplaceable for the smooth operation
of the country. Currently, the prospects of exporting electricity
as a national resource are quite far stretched.
A country that is geographically connected to the rest
of Europe but is currently going through the most painful
odyssey of its recent history. Greece has an installed capacity
of 13,000 MW which does not cover the country’s present
needs. Given its current deficit it is obliged to import
an additional electricity supply which makes production
and the distribution of energy even more costly. In the
tumultuous times that Greece is going through, the need
for high productivity and the search for cheaper energy
A technologically advanced country that is seeking friendly
neighbours for reasons of security as well as economic growth.
Although ranked among the most developed countries in the
world, Israel is currently obliged to import fuel to meet
its energy needs. However, this is expected to change with
the recent discovery of natural gas deposits that could
be utilised much sooner than in Cyprus. Soon, it will need
efficient means to export its power production surplus through
a well-networked electricity grid.
