GEK Terna endeavor:

The yet to be named project would reportedly create thousands of jobs as well as multiple benefits for the Greek economy.
South Korea project:
MGE is also planning to open the first phase of its $5 billion Project Inspire development in South Korea during the first quarter of 2021, reporting in May this year that it is making progress, having obtained all the necessary construction permits and approvals for the first phase of the development.
