Scaling-up Distributed Solar PV in Bulgaria

This report, part of a new report series on distributed solar PV by E3 Analytics, covers the current state of the market in Bulgaria. Despite the absence of a clear policy and regulatory framework for prosumers in the country, the market is starting to take off, with a growing number of SMEs as well as larger industries investing directly in solar PV to meet a portion of their onsite electricity needs. In the process, these companies are making an important contribution to tackling climate change, helping to accelerating the energy transition in the country, all while reducing their energy costs and improving their competitiveness.

While overall trajectory of energy policy in Bulgaria continues to rely heavily on high-cost, large-scale technologies, this report shows the tremendous opportunities available in choosing a more decentralized path.
