NGO Seminar Bulgaria, 2008

Za Zemiata, Bulgaria INFORSE-Europe

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY DAYS in Sofia, Bulgaria, 19-20 November 2008

When Za Zemiata and INFORSE-Europe presented a Sustainable Energy Vision for Bulgaria on November 19, 2008 in Sofia, stakeholders and the press were very interested. In Bulgaria, discussions are in process over a national energy strategy, so the launch of the vision was very timely. The vision includes a transition to sustainable energy with focus on energy efficiency, solar energy and biomass, and other forms of renewable energy. The official plan includes increasing electricity use, more nuclear power, and more coal power.
The sustainable energy vision is now available at INFORSE-Europe’s website, and we welcome comments that we can use to improve it. Read: Sustainable Energy Vision - Bulgaria.
