Given that RES are the cheapest power generation technology, thanks to our “green” power supply we estimate that we will gradually return to pre-crisis cost levels, while reducing our carbon footprint”, pointed out the managing director of EYATH, Anthimos Amanatidis, referring to main cause of negative results during the 2022 fiscal year.
