The Mytilineos group’s Protergia energy supplier has overtaken power utility PPC in the high-voltage electricity market to become the new leader in this category, according to the latest data issued by power grid operator IPTO for January

For all categories combined, PPC shed nearly 3 percentage points in January, ending the month with a market share of 52.84 percent, down from 55.62 percent in December.

Protergia gained ground in all categories combined to capture second place in January with a market share of 14.65 percent, up from 9.19 percent in December. This rise has been mainly attributed to Mytilineos group member Aluminium of Greece’s switch from PPC to Protergia.

Heron was ranked third in all categories combined with a market share of 10.64 percent in January, down slightly from 10.76 percent in December.

In the medium-voltage category, PPC’s market share contracted to 34.7 percent in January from 36 percent in December, while Protergia and Heron both achieved gains. Heron’s market share in this category rose from 16.8 percent to 17.4 percent, while Protergia’s market share increased from 16 percent to 17.1 percent.

As for the low-voltage category, PPC shed just a mild fraction of its still-dominant market share, while Protergia was the big gainer, leaping nearly 1.5 percent, from 7.7 percent to 9.1 percent.

Overall electricity demand in Greece rose by 6.62 percent in January 2024 compared to a year earlier, the IPTO data showed.

Also, renewable energy captured a 50.6 percent share of the country’s energy mix in January, followed by gas-fueled production, providing 41 percent of the month’s total, and hydropower, at 8.4 percent, the data showed.
