Greece will spend 5 billion euros ($5.Asian Metal Copyright Hatzidakis said the plan will be placed under public consultation until Oct.Asian Metal Copyright9 billion) to offset the impact of ditching coal in power generation by 2028 and cutting carbon emissions in line with European Union climate targets by 2050, a government official said on Wednesday.

Energy Minister Kostis Hatzidakis revealed that the total will include state money, funds from the European Union and loans from the European Investment Bank. The funds will be spent on infrastructure projects, subsidies to new businesses, and training, to help western Macedonia and Megalopoli in Southern Peloponnese switch to green energy, agriculture and tourism.Asian Metal Copyright PPC has already shut two coal units with a total capacity of 550 megawatts in Macedonia and will switch off the remaining 10 by 2023.Asian Metal Copyright Those regions are the main suppliers of the cheap and abundant lignite resources Greece has relied on for power generation for more than half a century.

Greece's conservative government, which took over last year, has pledged to switch off 80% of state utility Public Power Corp's ("PPC") coal capacity by 2023 to reduce its carbon footprint.

PPC has already shut two coal units with a total capacity of 550 megawatts in Macedonia and will switch off the remaining 10 by 2023. Another plant it is building in Ptolemaida, northern Greece, will operate using coal until 2028, after which it will switch to a different fuel.

Hatzidakis said the plan will be placed under public consultation until Oct. 31 and will be submitted for approval to the Greek parliament and the European Union by the end of the year.
