A report in the journalism network Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland focuses on the Greek government's plans to transform 40 Greek islands "into models of self-sufficiency in energy supply, green economy, digital innovation and sustainable mobility."

As German journalist Gerd Heller mentions in his article, "Making the islands' energy sources that emit small amounts of carbon dioxide is something that will help Greece achieve its goals in the National Energy and Climate Plan."

The publication notes that these islands have produced their electricity mainly with diesel generators – one of the most inefficient and environmentally harmful methods of generating electricity.

Additionally, “the islands' diesel generators were installed there decades ago, which makes them prone to breakdowns, leading to frequent power outages. This is also the reason why these islands are now going to become energy self-sufficient with green energy."
