Friday, 12 August 2016
The European Commission has allocated 29.9 million euros to the construction of a new 140 km power line in Bulgaria.
By transmitting wind and photovoltaic energy, the power line between Dobrudja, in southeastern Bulgaria, and Burgas, on the country’s Black Sea coast,will integrate renewables in the electricity market, the Commission said in a statement on Wednesday.
The EU support, which equals half of the funding needed for the project, will also enhance the capacity of the Bulgarian electricity grid and strengthen its resilience, the Commission added.
