In Western Macedonia is located the largest Steam Electric Industry in Greece. The lignite mines of Kozani and Ptolemais provide lignite for power generation, which is the most important energy source for the Greek economy. Public Power Corporation (PPC) has operated in the area for more than 50 years and affects the life of more than 120,000 people. PPC's activity expropriates - for national reasons - farmlands and villages, disturbing the traditional ways of employment in the region, and causing serious environmental devastation and chronic diseases for the residents. Lost Land (part of The Energy Project) documents the untold environmental destruction in the name of development and power autonomy.
