Overview of Company's activities 

PPC is Greece’s largest electricity generator and the principal supplier of electricity in Greece.
PPC currently holds assets in lignite mines, power generation and distribution. Its power portfolio consists of conventional thermal plants (lignite, gas and oil fired), and hydroelectric power plants, as well as RES installations, accounting for approximately 61.4% of the total installed capacity in the country.
Especially in the RES field, PPC is the first company in Greece to install RES in 1982, and is active through its subsidiary company “PPC Renewables S.A.” (PPCR), having a portfolio of wind farms, small hydro powerc plants and photovoltaics.
In 2016, PPC’s generation of 30.3 TWh coupled with the 2 TWh that it imported, covered 54.5% of total demand. PPC’s energy mix comprised of generation from lignite (49.3%), oil (15.3%), natural gas (18.5%), hydro (16%) and renewable energy sources (0.9%).
The approximately 7.3 million customers of PPC, consumed 91.9% of the total electricity supplied to end-customers in Greece in 2016.
The Hellenic Electricity Transmission System, often referred as the “Interconnected System”, spreads over the mainland of Greece. The Ionian islands, along with certain Aegean islands in close proximity to the mainland, are also included in the Interconnected System, to which they are connected through submarine cables.
In the Interconnected System, about a third of the generation capacity is located in northwestern Greece, in close proximity to the lignite mines, which are a primary fuel source. In the last 2 years, two new, state of the art gas-fired plants were constructed, namely Aliveri V and Megalopolis V, in the southern part of the Interconnected System, as well as the new hydroelectric power plant of Ilarion, in the Aliakmonas river.
All remaining islands, which are referred to as the“Non-Interconnected Islands”, are served by autonomous oil-fired power plants. In most of the islands, demand is also covered by RES. The largest power plants in the Non-Interconnected Islands are located in Crete and Rhodes (with total thermal capacity exceeding 1,000 MW).
