Industries protest over delays in drop of energy costs

Energy-intensive industries on Friday protested a delay in measures announced a couple of months ago for reducing energy costs and for ironing out the electricity market distortions that significantly jack up the price of each kilowatt/hour of power.

“Albeit limited and insufficient to stop the recession, those measures would offer some relief to the suffering Greek industry,” the Hellenic Union of Industrial Consumers of Energy (EBIKEN) said in a letter addressed to the government.
