Bulgaria wants adjustments made to EU's green policy

The EU Member States should decide for themselves how to achieve the common goals of the Community's Green Policy according to their capabilities. As a poorer country, Bulgaria believes that the goals of using clean energy for heating and cooling, as well as in transport, are too ambitious and require funding that is not in line with the capabilities of many countries. Bulgaria says that it would not be able to cope with the high requirements for increasing hydrogen consumption.

This is what Bulgaria's Deputy Permanent Representative to the EU, Ivanka Tasheva, said during the Transport and Energy Council in Brussels. She called for nuclear energy and gas to be included in the EU's environmentally sustainable economic activities.
