Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants by 40% by 2026 is achievable and gives Bulgaria a competitive advantage.
Bulgaria can implement reforms to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants by 40% by 2026 and implement a gradual exit from coal dependence by 2038 at the latest. This reform has been agreed with the European Commission in Bulgaria’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP). The energy transition is imperative not only because of the climate crisis, but also to modernise the Bulgarian economy and energy sector. This requires systematic work to transform the energy sector and transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. This is the position of energy experts, environment and climate advocates united in the Climate Coalition Bulgaria.
