Abstract
According to the current European and national legislation, Greece targets to a 40% share of renewable energy sources (RES) in electricity production by 2020. This paper focuses on the most suitable policy mix for Greece in achieving or approaching the aforementioned target. For the evaluation of different policy mixes two research tools are used,

Abstract

The energy production from the non-interconnected islands of the Aegean Sea with the mainland's grid (2 very small islands in the Ionian Sea included) depends on imported oil by approximately 90%. As a consequence the variable cost of a thermal MWh follows the international changes of oil prices with a correlation coefficient of 99.2%. Additionally from 2013, which constitutes the start of the 3rd Phase of the EU Emission Trading Scheme, the Public Power Corporation (PPC) of Greece - the unique Administrator of the electricity network and owner of the thermal power plants on the islands - has to face the allowances cost and the penalties for the excessive releases of CO2 in the atmosphere. The present study adopts 3 scenarios in order to estimate some of the environmental, economic and social aspects of the electrification on the non-interconnected islands of the Aegean Sea up to year 2030.

Abstract
The Bosporus Straits are among the most crowded and potentially dangerous, waterways in the world traversing urban areas of over 12 million people. Their narrow and winding shape, along with strong surface and counter deep water sea currents hinders the navigation. In this article, a queuing model of maritime traffic in the Bosporus Straits is presented.
