Bulgaria is set to dramatically expand its wind power output in the next 10 years. From the current 330MW installed to over 3,000MW by 2020, wind energy will meet 13.5% of Bulgaria’s electricity demand.
The EU directive establishing mandatory targets for renewable energy for all EU Member States requires Bulgaria to increase the amount of renewables in its energy mix to 16% by 2020, up from the current level of 9.4%. Bulgaria must submit its national action plan, outlining the measures it will take to boost renewable energy , by June 2010.
