Proximo is a new and innovative media, events and technology group set up to service the ever-evolving infrastructure community. With its unique product offering, we aim to bring the distribution of news, events & data for the infra sector into the modern era. 

Greece is making up for lost time with an investment boom in energy and infrastructure that is attracting strong sponsor and lenders support. Greece's geography and economy offer up some unique challenges and opportunities for developers, with ports, aviation, waste-to-energy and solar thermal all attracting interest.

Proximo’s Greek Energy & Infrastructure Finance Business Meeting will look at the HRADF's asset development programme, the Greek renewables auctions, secondary market activity and opportunities for new debt providers to take a prominent role in the market, alongside commercial banks and DFIs.
