Bulgaria Launches 200 MW Rooftop Solar Push
Bulgaria has the potential to deploy 200 MW of solar capacity on building roofs across the country in the next few years, according to the managing director of the Sustainable Energy Development Agency (SEDA). Last month, Bulgaria implemented changes to its renewable energy legislation in order to support the expansion of green energy and encourage private households to adopt it.The technical potential for rooftop solar installations in the Balkan country is estimated at about 2 million square metres, with the deployment of such systems concentrated in urban areas. These installations could have a significant effect on households, and there is a need to harmonise numerous existing regulations from various sectors in order to ensure the effective implementation of the amendments. Could Bulgaria Deploy 200 MW of Solar on Rooftops? SEDA estimates that about 2 million square metres of rooftop space are available for solar installations in Bulgaria. The deployment of rooftop solar systems in the Balkan country could have a significant effect on households. Changes to the renewable energy legislation in Bulgaria last month were a step towards encouraging private households to adopt green energy. To ensure the effective implementation of the policy amendments, numerous existing regulations from various sectors must be harmonised. Bulgaria could deploy up to 200 MW of solar capacity on building roofs in the next few years. This could bring economic benefits in the form of job creation and cost savings. Rooftop solar systems could also lead to greater energy security and independence for Bulgaria.

Bulgaria wants one more 2.6 GW of renewables by 2030-- and also coal
Bulgaria is targeting 2,645 MW of brand-new renewable resource generation capacity this years, according to a draft version of the country's Strategy for Sustainable Energy Development till 2030 with a horizon until 2050, published on the nationwide parliament's internet site. The brand-new capacity would include around 2.3 GW of solar and wind projects, which Sofia said should be released on a market basis. No information were supplied regarding exactly how such volumes would be appointed and in which market sectors. The technique additionally envisages the nation's coal power plants will remain active beyond 2030 as well as includes the opportunity of new nuclear capability as well as upgraded gas interconnection with neighboring countries. The draft file will certainly be reviewed by the Bulgarian cabinet and also parliament prior to adoption. Non-hydropower renewables compose around 2.3 GW of Bulgaria's 12.6 GW power generation fleet, with lignite and also hard coal-fired power stations providing 4.5 GW, hydro 3.2 GW, nuclear 2 GW and also natural gas 600 MW. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) approximates solar accounted for 1,065 MW of that clean power capability at the end of last year, with only 32 MW of new projects included 2019. Irena claimed only 53 MW of brand-new solar capacity has actually been included Bulgaria in the last seven years, due to an absence of rewards. Last year's 32 MW presaged an uptick in new large range solar centers, with plans for a 400 MW solar park in the Haskovo municipality of southerly Bulgaria unveiled late last month. That project is anticipated to sell clean power under a private power supply offer. A 180 MW solar project is also being developed in the community of Devnya, in the Varna district of northeastern Bulgaria.
