Bulgaria’s 2030 energy consumption to drop by 31.7 % compared to 2007 level

, SEE Energy News

Nikolay Nalbantov from the Bulgarian Ministry of Energy said that the country’s Integrated Energy and Climate Plan envisages a 27.89 % reduction in primary energy consumption and a 31.67 % reduction in final energy consumption in 2030 compared to the 2007 reference scenario.

According to him, Bulgaria will focus on achieving energy savings in final energy consumption through improved energy performance of buildings. Energy efficiency measures are particularly important in the process of energy transmission and distribution. They aim to increase efficiency and reduce technological costs in electricity, natural gas and heat distribution networks. The financial mechanisms that will help implement the measures are equally important, Nalbantov said.

Bulgaria has committed to update its Integrated Plan by 30 June and it is currently working on it, with a report on reviewed targets to be presented by 15 March.

Nalbantov said that the EU member states are to develop a strategy for the renovation of the national building stock. In line with this commitment, the Energy Ministry has mapped out a strategy which reviews the building stock and plans measures to improve the performance of buildings. The document was adopted by the Council of Ministers early in 2020.
