The next Bulgarian Parliament will most likely decide whether to build the Belene nuclear power plant, or to build Unit 7 of the Kozloduy NPP, Valentin Nikolov, Chairman of the Parliamentary Energy Committee, told BNR. In his opinion, the second option is better. “The procedure for the construction of another nuclear power plant continues”, MP Nikolov added. 

According to analyst Ruslan Stefanov, Bulgaria does not need additional nuclear capacity before units 5 and 6 of the Kozloduy NPP are decommissioned, which could happen by 2050.
