Bulgaria to build an adequate infrastructure of EV charging stations by 2025

Bulgaria’s transmission system operator ESO signed a Memorandum with the National Association of Municipalities, the Chamber of Power Engineers, the Bulgarian Electric Vehicle Association and the Electric Vehicles Industrial Cluster to build, by the end of 2025 an adequate infrastructure of charging stations for electric vehicles throughout the country. 

The goal is to build 10,000 EV charging stations, from renewable sources. ESO will provide access for the connection of the constructed charging stations to its electricity transmission network.

The cooperation agreement takes into account the expected growth in the demand for electric vehicles in the period between 2030 and 2040. ESO experts have forecasted that by 2030, 200,000 electric cars will be on Bulgarian roads and to cover their annual electricity consumption 600,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity will be required. And, in 2050, their number will reach 3,5 million for the supply of which more than 10 million MWh of electricity will be needed.
