Renewable Energy in Bulgariа | 2022 edition
The 2022 edition of the Renewable Energy in Bulgariа report provides an analysis of the current state of play in the sector and the competitive landscape, a ranking of the most dynamic renewable energy companies in Bulgaria and an overview of financial opportunities for green energy projects at the national and EU level. We also looked at the Bulgarian electricity market and the applicable legal incentives for stimulating the production of energy from renewables.
In 2021, the sector’s operating revenue surged by 41%, compared with the modest increase of 5.8% recorded in 2020. Growth came on the back of the rise in electricity prices and the increasing demand for alternative energy. Total investments in long-term assets more than doubled, reaching a record-high of EUR 62 mln.
Germany and Italy are still the top sources of foreign investment in Bulgaria’s renewable energy sector with nearly one in three providers having a German or Italian parent company.
