EU Funds A New 140 km Electricity Line in Bulgaria

The European Commission has allocated 29.9 million euros to the construction of a new 140 km electricity line between Dobrudja and Burgas in Bulgaria. By transmitting wind and photovoltaic energy, the power line will integrate renewables in the electricity market. The European support will also enhance the capacity of the Bulgarian electricity grid and strengthen its resilience. The electricity line is a "project of common interest" and it belongs to the so-called 'Black Sea Corridor' project cluster: three electricity lines which will reinforce the electricity transmission corridor along the Romanian and Bulgariancoast, as well as between the rest of Europe and Turkey.
The EU support in Bulgaria will contribute to reinforce security of electricity supply, integrate renewable energy in the electricity market, and to increase future power exchanges, in view of the expected wind power from Greece and photovoltaic energy from South Bulgaria.
The European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete said: "The new Bulgarian line will increase the power exchanges in the area, and will allow the transmission of a new wave of clean energy from South-Eastern Europe. This in line with the Energy Union strategy, which aims at securing and integrating energy markets while ensuring sustainable energy for citizens and enterprises".
