"Bulgaria strives to achieve the national goal of 27.9% of final gross consumption by 2030 to be energy from renewable sources," said Temenuzka Petkova, former Minister of Energy, today during the international forum dedicated to the RES industry, in Sofia - "Be Renewable: Energy Evolution 2023".

She also commented on the changes in the Law on Energy from Renewable Sources (LERS). "The main focus of the law that we passed in the Bulgarian parliament is to reduce the administrative burden for investors who wish to develop RES production. The possibility of creating contact centers providing comprehensive information on the construction of RES, as well as energy communities, which will enable installers and household users to participate in the production, consumption and sale of excess electrical energy for them, is envisaged. This is a very good step forward towards the development of green technologies".

Among the official guests of the event and speakers were also Nikolay Pavlov, Deputy Minister of Economy and Industry, Tsvetelina Penkova, MEP, Tsvetan Simeonov, Chairman of the Board of the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Angelin Tsachev, Executive Director of the State Electricity System Operator (ESO), Blagoi Golubarev, member of the Commission for Energy and Water Regulation (EWRC), Maria Mincheva, vice-president of the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce (BCC) and others.
