Greece’s biggest employers’ group, the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV), on Thursday pointed to the country’s continued disadvantage of featuring amongst the highest energy prices among the EU’s 28.

In a report unveiled less than two weeks before European Parliament elections, SEB charged that post-2020 planning must correspond with the goal of a reduction of “greenhouse” gases of between 80 to 95 percent – compared to 1990 – and up until far-off 2050.

SEV’s intervention comes on the heels of a report by the European Parliament’s research arm, which put the benefits of an integrated European energy policy at 250 billion euros a year.

On an ominous note, SEV said recession-battered Greece today features an energy cost that is 30 percent higher than the Community average.
