The Greek government has announced that all of the country’s three existing coal plants can theoretically operate until 2025. The last of these plants had been due to close in 2023. The country’s Ptolemaida 5 coal plant, which is expected to be commissioned in early 2023, could operate until 2028 according to the Greek climate law and the country’s NECP. The plant had been scheduled to be converted to burn fossil gas in 2025.
