70 MW of Renewable Capacities Await Licences

Some 70 megawatts (MW) of new renewable energy capacity await completion of the licensing procedure at the energy regulator, its chairman, Angel Semerdzhiev, said.

No renewable power plants have been connected to the country's electricity grid since July 1, Sofia News Agency (Novinite) cited Semerdzhiev as telling reporters on Tuesday.

He pointed out that the renewable capacity connected to the middle voltage networks of local power distributors CEZ, EVN and Energo-Pro was higher than that connected to the state-owned power grid operator National Electric Company (NEK).

Semerdzhiev also complained that the recent boom of new renewable energy projects had impacted negatively the local thermal power plants, the Electricity System Operator (ESO), and NEK.
