CSD Policy Brief No. 79: Decentralisation and Democratisation of the Bulgarian Electricity Sector: Bringing the Country Closer to the EU Climate and Energy Core
 
Full text (Adobe PDF, 550 KB)

The first-generation renewable energy policy in Bulgaria was mismanaged to the benefit of a few politically well-connected companies and individuals unleashing a popular backlash against green energy.

A low-hanging fruit to decarbonise the electricity sector would be the exploitation of Bulgaria’s enormous potential for decentralised power generation through renewable energy sources. Decentralisation of power supply would empower households and contribute to the decline of energy poverty. Bulgaria has a long-term potential capacity for decentralized PV-based power generation of more than 5.4 TWh per year, one-seventh of the current power consumption in the country.
