ESO plans to build 200 electric charging stations in Bulgaria

Bulgaria’s transmission system operator ESO is planning a transformation of the country’s electricity system in order to better respond to the green energy transition while guaranteeing the security of supply. This is what emerged during the Energy for a Green Future conference, hosted by the Ministry of Energy.

In particular, ESO believes in the concept of a Trans-Balkan Adriatic Corridor that will help share green energy while maximising its use in an efficient way.

“The decentralisation of electricity production requires the development of an electricity transmission network that will ensure better connectivity between the European regions,” said Dimitar Zarchev, director of the National Dispatching Centre at ESO.

On another note, executive director Angelin Tsachev focused on the electrification of the transport sector, announcing that the company plans, in partnership with municipalities and transport organisations, to build 200 charging stations for electric cars and 9 hydrogen stations on the borders with neighbouring countries, as well as in the cities of Sofia, Varna and Burgas.
