The National Energy and Climate Plan (PNEC) is the Greek Government's strategic climate and energy plan, which sets out a detailed roadmap to achieve specific energy and climate targets by 2030. The NECP sets and outlines priorities and political measures in relation to a wide range of economic and development activities aimed at benefiting Greek society, thus constituting a reference text for the next decade.
It is expected that the application of specific measures to improve energy efficiency in infrastructures will offer significant results. For example, priority is given to projects for the promotion and deployment of networks of compressed gas (CNG) supply points.
Regarding the use of natural gas in road transport, the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) as fuel for heavy vehicles is of special interest as a fuel. In this context, it is planned to deploy a network of 55 CNG stations throughout Greece by 2030 to meet the demand. The relevant institutional framework has also been developed, and adequate knowledge of CNG, vehicle adaptation workshops, technicians, car repair shops and Technical Control Centers (KTEO) for CNG vehicles are available in the market.
The promotion of compressed natural gas in the Greek territory is a key priority, since it will contribute to reduce energy costs for the driver who uses CNG vehicles in Greece, who will see economic savings in their transport costs.
