Pöyry at the Energy Market Liberalization Conference in Sofia
Over 400 people gathered in Sofia to attend the Energy Market Liberalization Conference and to discuss the liberalisation process in Bulgaria.
The conference started off with a speech from the newly designated Energy Minister, Ms. Petkova, in which she promised that the liberalisation process would be one of the foci of her tenure. Other topics also discussed included Energy Poverty and the publicly available summary of the World Bank Report on Bulgaria.
Stephen Woodhouse (from Pöyry) then kicked off the second panel on the topic: “Market Reform – Is it so difficult?” The panel of international experts discussed the reform process, with a particular focus on the World Bank Report.
Anticipating the gradual market liberalisation trends and resultant opportunities in CEE and SEE, Pöyry has provided commercial, regulatory and strategic advice to the leading energy utilities, project developers and financing institutions across the region for over 10 years. More information is available in our latest flyer on the Pöyry Bulgarian report.
The Bulgarian energy ministry has also made available the World Bank's summary report on Bulgaria and its market design in view of further liberalisation.
