The first Greek isle slated for inclusion in the “GR-eco” initiative will be Halki, a small island in the Dodecanese chain near the larger and popular holiday destination of Rhodes, in the southeastern Aegean.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, accompanied by a handful of ministers, several energy sector executives, as well as French ambassador to Athens Patrick Maisonnave, will attend an event marking the isle’s designation on Friday.

The GR-eco initiative aims to achieve a green energy transition, boost viable economic development and apply innovation on several islands in the southern Aegean, the product of a high-profile Greek-French MoC signed last July in Athens.

Besides the two national states, the agreement includes the South Aegean Regional government, the French embassy in Athens, the specific island municipality, the Syggelidis group of vehicle imports, Citroen, Akuo Energy Greece, OMEXON/Vince Energies, Vodafone Greece and ALD Automotive.

The use of e-vehicles, charging stations, recycling, renewable energy sources and cutting-edge telecoms are the highlights of the initiative.
