Bulgaria works for long-term solutions to guarantee the reliability and autonomy of the energy sector
Bulgaria is working for long-term solutions to guarantee the reliability and autonomy of the energy sector and to minimize the negative effects of new energy crises in the future. President Rumen Radev stated this today at a meeting with the President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Odile Renaud-Basso in Tirana. The head of state is visiting Albania to participate in the EU-Western Balkans summit.
The President emphasizes that the transition to the green economy should lead to the strengthening of the national capacity for the production of cheap electricity, which will ensure both Bulgaria’s needs and support the energy balance in the region. The implementation of the National Plan for the restoration and comprehensive restoration of carbon emissions and the restoration of electricity must be achieved in such a way that the national energy resources, the accumulated experience and the scientific potential of the country are used to the maximum extent, Rumen Radev also pointed out. In connection with this, the idea of leading Bulgarian universities, scientists and business representatives for electricity storage through the construction of an underground PAVEC in the Mariska Basin region with technology that has already been implemented in some countries was discovered.
During the meeting, the head of state called for making the community in Southeast Europe a priority for both the region and the international financial institutions. This, according to the head of state, is of key importance for ensuring alternative supply chains, preventing a deficit and subsequent growth of inflation. Rumen Radev once again emphasizes that for the difference from Central Europe, the distance between the two bridges on the Danube river connecting Bulgaria and Romania is 300 kilometers, which is not in the interest of the development of the economic relations of the two countries, nor of the EU.
