Bulgaria’s energy sector suffers from deep governance and security challenges, which hold the first pages of the mainstream media in the past year with stories of fraud, nepotism and political corruption.

During the first two weeks of April 2010 the Bulgarian government and media announced details of abuses and irregularities in the Bulgarian energy sector and proposed ideas for restructuring, which confirmed the existance of serious governance problems in the sector.

Are Bulgarian consumers willing to pay for clean energy?
Bulgarian households pay the lowest price of electricity in Europe in absolute terms. Price increases are inevitable to cover costs of new investments in production and transmission.

Are Bulgarian households ready to foot the bill of more expensive electricity? more »
