- Greece. The country’s energy grid has been placed under a state of emergency because of “a major deficiency” in natural gas supplies, caused by a jump in demand for natural gas and electricity throughout the Balkans, due to abnormally heavy winter.
- “The energy sufficiency problems have arisen as a result of the discontinuation of electricity exports to Greece by Bulgaria (since Friday) and FYROM (since Monday), the limited operation of hydroelectric units in order to conserve water reserves, which are already low, for the summer, problems in the country’s supply with natural gas from the pipeline via Turkey, and low temperatures in the country resulting in increased energy demand for heating given that consumers have turned to air conditioners and heaters rather than central heating due to high heating oil prices,” said a report.
