The Bulgarian Energy Sector until 2050
The Bulgarian government has been successful in reaching the 2020 target of at least 16% of the energy consumption of the country to come from renewable energy sources (RES). Expanding the share of the RES in the country’s power generation to the levels ensuring more than 90% decarbonisation of the electricity sector, consistent with the EU policy framework, would be a much greater challenge with a far-reaching impact on the Bulgarian nuclear and coal policies.

The Budapest-based Regional Center for Energy Policy Research (REKK), the Technical University in Vienna, the Belgrade-based Electricity Coordination Centre (EKC) and the Hungarian consultancy, OG Research in cooperation with the Center for the Study of Democracy (CSD) developed a South-East Europe Regional Electricity Roadmap (SEERMAP) based on a scenario-building exercise using European Commission approved modelling techniques and assumptions, for the almost complete decarbonisation of electricity generation by 2050.
