Savvakis Athanassios

Chairman of the Energy Exchange Group,

In the new production model of our economy, energy efficiency and international networking between companies in the private sector must play an important role. I am sure that the IEEG and the Cretan Energy Conference can make a positive contribution in this direction, thus contributing to the manufacture and delivery of internationally marketable Greek products and services.

I wish you the best of luck with this event!
