Reuters reported that Greece moved closer to cutting Crete's reliance on oil to generate power as grid operator ADMIE signed a EUR 178 million European Investment Bank loan to partly fund undersea cables to the mainland. The 132 kilometre interconnection of Crete to the Peloponnese peninsula is key to ensuring the power supply on the island which relies solely on oil-fired plants and will help Greece ramp up its renewable energy capacity. The project, budgeted at 350 million euros, consists of two undersea cables, and is expected to be completed next year.

Total lending in Greece by the EIB, which is owned by the European Union's 28 member states, stands at EUR 19 billion, including green energy, transport and telecommunications projects.
