Bulgaria to develop a roadmap targeting
1.1GW green hydrogen capacity by 2030

The Bulgarian government aims to develop an integrated hydrogen roadmap in the next three months that would address the decarbonisation issues across all sectors.

The country plans to produce hydrogen by electrolysis using renewable sources and established a goal of installing additional 800MW wind and 280MW solar capacity by 2030.

This goal is separate to the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) which targets 2.1GW solar, 250MW wind and 250MW biomass capacity by 2030.

The Bulgarian roadmap will fall in line with the hydrogen strategy released by the European Commission in July. The strategy’s objective is to install at least 6 GW of renewable hydrogen electrolysers in the EU by 2024 and 40 GW of renewable hydrogen electrolysers by 2030
