Impact assessment on EU Renewable Energy Directive: Site visit Bulgaria

Sofia, Bulgaria, Bulgaria


The Sustainable Development Observatory is carrying out an impact study to assess the factors underlying the differing levels of implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive and the transition to more decentralised energy systems across Member States. In this respect, the study will devote special attention to the influence of the involvement of civil society and the ownership structure of renewable energy facilities.

Complementing these objectives with a practical dimension, the study will then identify good practices in Member States while taking into consideration their national contexts, and develop recommendations about the energy policy beyond 2014 for the EU institutions and for Members States, particularly with a view on the upcoming 2030 policy package.
