Bulgaria: Experts Discuss Solar Thermal at Renewable Energies in Buildings Conference

Uwe TrenknerOnce again, Bulgaria is facing political turmoil, with early elections due to take place in autumn. The outgoing cabinet of Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski has been embroiled in fierce disputes with both the conventional and the renewable energy sector. For example, when the government had tried to keep electricity prices low for political reasons, no public or private utility affected by the government’s decision received any kind of compensation for its losses. On 17 June, German and Bulgarian renewable energy experts and business representatives, among them solar thermal system manufacturers, gathered for the Renewable Energies in Buildings conference organised by the German-Bulgarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Uwe Trenkner, a former Secretary General of the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation, used the conference to speak about solar heating and solar cooling for buildings. “Obviously, the solar heat market in Bulgaria isn’t doing so well,” he said regretfully.
