Greece hit record high green energy output last year.

After shutting most of the coal-fired power plants it had relied on for decades as part of a plan to phase out coal by 2026, Greece has more than doubled its output from renewables since 2014.
It needs to invest about 30 billion euros to boost green capacity, expand grids and install energy storage units to achieve its target for 44% of energy consumption to come from green energy by 2030 from 22% in 2021, according to a draft plan for climate and energy.

                Greece's achievement of a record-high green energy output last year reflects a significant milestone in its commitment to transitioning away from traditional coal-fired power plants. With a strategy to phase out coal by 2026, Greece has more than doubled its renewable energy output since 2014. However, the country acknowledges the need for substantial investments, approximately 30 billion euros, to further boost green capacity, expand grids, and install energy storage units. The draft plan for climate and energy aims for 44% of energy consumption to be sourced from green energy by 2030, up from 22% in 2021. Greece's efforts exemplify a proactive approach in the global fight against climate change, showcasing the potential for increased reliance on renewable energy sources

                      This is what is needed .Renewable energy is good since it has a low or zero carbon emission.
