Bulgaria’s ESO, NEK Seek Regulator's Nod for Split-up

Bulgaria's Electricity System Operator (ESO) and national electricity company NEK are seeking the approval of the country's energy regulator for unbundling their operations, Standart News reported.
The two companies have filed with State Energy and Water Regulatory Commission (SEWRC) the relevant papers, the regulator’s head Anzhela Toneva told parliament's energy committee, as quoted by Standart News.
The unbundling of the two companies is required under the EU’s Third Energy Liberalisation Package. Following the split-up, ESO will perform all activities associated with construction, maintenance and connection to the country’s power grid, as well as the functions of measuring and reporting electricity consumption, which are currently provided by NEK.
Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH) took full control of ESO from NEK this summer. The holding company was set up in 2008 and controls Mini Maritza-Iztok, NEK, ESO, Bulgargaz and the country’s sole nuclear power plant Kozloduy.
