As of today, the price of natural gas rises by about 10%, the Bulgarian energy regulator has decided. In December, one megawatt-hour of blue fuel costs about 52 euros without fees and taxes. The main reason for the rise is the jump of natural gas price on international markets.

At the International Conference on Energy and Climate Security, the chairman of the Bulgarian Energy and Water Regulatory Commission Ivan Ivanov promised that there would be no drastic hikes in the price of electricity and it would remain affordable for households in the next year.

At the same time, the day-ahead price of electricity for December 2 in Bulgaria rose by 21.8% to 242.29 euros per megawatt-hour, according to data by the Bulgarian Independent Energy Exchange.
