Romania, Bulgaria, Greece to develop joint offshore wind, hydrogen and EV projects

Romania, Bulgaria and Greece have signed a declaration of intent to develop joint projects in offshore wind, green hydrogen and electric vehicles (EV).

The declaration was signed on Friday (19 January) between Romania’s Energy Minister Sebastian Burduja, Bulgaria’s Energy Minister Rumen Radev and Greece’s Energy and Environment Minister Theodoros Skylakakis, during the High-Level Meeting for Connectivity in Central and Eastern Europe.

“The joint declaration with Greece and Bulgaria is a groundbreaking initiative. Whether we are talking about wind energy from the Black Sea or the Adriatic Sea, hydrogen, or the electric vehicle charging station network, we have common goals: to attract investments, ensure the accelerated implementation of projects, and transform our economies and societies for a safer, more prosperous, and greener future,” said Minister Burduja.

According to the declaration, the three governments plan to jointly develop offshore wind energy projects in the Black Sea and the Aegean Sea, including accessing funding through the European Connectivity Facility.

All three sides will also plan to establish a regional centre for green hydrogen with the participation of authorities, transport system operators, and industry, also accessing funding through the European Connectivity Facility. Additionally, they plan to develop cross-border EV charging infrastructure.
