Current emissions from power plants in Greece are presented and analysed. The effect of Directives 88/609/EEC pertaining to the emissions of large combustion installations and 93/12/EEC on the sulphur content of gas oil is examined. It is concluded that Greek power plants can meet NO% emissions requirements without abatement measures, while new plants will have to employ SC^ reduction devices. The evolution of emissions from power generation up to the year 2010 is studied according to three technology-oriented scenarios, revealing that there is substantial emission reduction potential which, however, is not likely to be exhausted as Greece does not face severe acidification problems and NO% emissions are of concern in urban areas only, where power pl
