The energy issue in Gaza is of paramount importance; for the citizens, 1.7 million of whom live in an area of 365 square kilometres; for water desalinisation and purification; for hospitals and their patients; for the Hamas government; and last but not least for one of the few investments in infrastructure in Gaza: the Gaza Power Plant (GPP).

It is an issue that involves Israeli, Palestinian and British business interests and €250 million from the European Union, which seems to have been spent somewhat carelessly, to say the least.
