According to the new models in the Integrated Energy and Climate Plan, the share of energy produced by RES in Bulgaria is expected to reach an average of 40% by 2030, BTA has reported. 

Until 2025, the country will continue to rely on the existing coal capacities, which would participate in covering consumption on a market basis, Deputy Minister of Energy Iva Petrova pointed out at an energy forum organized by Capital media. After 2030 however, Bulgaria must give up on coal at the expense of RES, which will produce 11 gigawatts of electricity. When it comes to nuclear energy, about 2 gigawatts of new nuclear capacities are planned in the period 2035 - 2040, Petrova added. The introduction of storage capacities is also envisaged. In the medium-term and long-term perspective, new pumped hydroelectric energy storage capacities are also planned.
