THE AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IN BULGARIA
cordially invites its members to a Kick-Off meeting of the Project
Industry Study: Decarbonisation of the Power Sector in Bulgaria
on September 14, 2021 /Tuesday/
at 12:00 a.m. – 01:00 p.m.

In the context of the European Green Deal and the increased ambitions for decarbonisation, Bulgaria, similarly to other coal-dependent countries in Europe, will have to lay out its plan for its energy transition. The AmCham study aims to contribute to the public debate in Bulgaria on the decarbonisation of the power sector and the proposed solutions for this transition.

The study will be led by the AmCham Green Deal Working Group and will be organised in two phases:  
  • Phase I: Study of different options for the decarbonisation of the power sector, based on a detailed modelling of the Bulgarian power sector in different scenarios. The deliverables will include quantitative modelling outputs in the different scenarios to 2050 and the identification of the low-regret options for the next 5 years.
  • Phase II: Policy paper providing recommendations for the development of an investment framework to support decarbonisation, aiming at identifying which type of investment framework could be implemented in Bulgaria to unlock the necessary investments to decarbonise the power sector.
