, SEE Energy News

Public Power Corporation (PPC) is maintaining its electricity market share recaptured over the past five months, during the energy crisis, with holding on to a share of 64.5 % at the end of January.

PPC’s 64.5 percent market share in January is slightly higher than that in December 2021, also slightly higher compared to November’s share – 61.19 %.

On the contrary, PPC’s market share decreased by almost 5 % in the first nine months of 2021, dropping to 62.62 % in September. However,
spurred by increasing electricity prices, which affected the prices offered by independent suppliers, the company’s share increased in the
last quarter of last year.

PPC’s pricing policy has been a key factor in luring customers away from independent suppliers, as it has continued offering discounts, which, combined with state subsidies offered during the ongoing energy crisis, have cut electricity costs further.

Among the independent suppliers, Protergia continued to lead atb the end of January, with a market share of 7.07 %. Heron follows with 6.42 % and then Elpedison with 6.06 %, NRG with 4.36 %, Watt & Volt with 2.66 %, Fysiko Aerio Ellados with 2.11 %, Zenith with 1.99 %, Volterra with 1.79 % and Volton with 1.61 %.
