Despite the turbulence of global energy markets, Greece has persevered and joined an elite club — including the US State of California — to hit a 100% renewable energy milestone. This transition gives a sense of optimism — from solar-powered greenhouses in Spain to transforming coal mines to solar farms in Virginia, there's good reason for hope in pressing ahead for a more resilient and peaceful future.
With the world's energy sector topsy-turvy because of the Ukraine War, Iran unrest, and OPEC+ production cuts, good energy news is welcome in the Eastern Mediterranean — including Greece. However, there's a risk of new conflict, too; energy partners Greece and Egypt are worried about Turkey's neo-Ottoman style of gas deals with Libya, including infringements on Greek sovereignty. There are reasons for hope but good reasons for caution.
