By the end of September, the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) will be ready with an analysis about the need of installation of Belene nuclear power plant and the entire financial model of its implementation, Energy Minister Temenuzhka Petkova said, quoted by FOCUS News Agency. Some of the equipment is already on site, while the other will be delivered in September. She denied comments that the government’s programme excludes the Belene project. Precisely, the ministry asked BAS to prepare the analysis, along with the need of proposals for strategic development of the energy sector. Bulgaria has no strategy for the years after 2020. Therefore, the ministry is taking steps to elaborate a strategy until 2030 together with all parties present in the parliament.
