During the Annual meeting of ABEA on the 6th and 7th of July 2023 in the city of Panagyurishte, Mrs. Nadia Nikolova presented the progress of the LIFE-BECKON project, in which Sofia is a pilot region.

Within the framework of LIFE-BECKON, SOFENA is implementing a demonstration project to open a technical office and an online counter to support energy communities.

A capacity-building program is being prepared through a “Train the Trainer” approach to increase stakeholder knowledge, and integrated services are being developed through a platform to facilitate access to information, tools and guides, to find partners and investors.

Interested municipalities are to be invited to receive consulting assistance and training, as well as to financially support the creation of an energy community.

During the Annual meeting of ABEA in July 2023 DE-RISK project was presented that aims to support the market entry of renewable energy systems by promoting local flexibility markets to enable safe and reliable integration of RES into the grid.

Four pilot projects are being implemented in the partner countries, and the flexible DE-RISK platform will reduce potential technical risks in the process of implementation and realization.

The project develops innovative business models that provide benefits, equity and sustainability for all participants, and financial schemes will be tested to democratize access to sustainable investments.

SOFENA, as work package leader, developed an “Analysis of the regulatory impact of local flexibility markets” in ten EU countries, and by the end of the project will prepare a package of regulatory proposals and roadmaps for the development of local flexibility markets in the 10 analyzed countries.

During the annual meeting of the energy agencies and centers in Bulgaria, held in Panagyurishte on July 6-7, 2023, SOFENA presented the European projects it is currently implementing

SOFENA is the coordinator of this project, which is a climate and energy education initiative designed to contribute to the EU’s goal of net zero emissions by 2050 through education, public awareness and cooperation. The target group is students from 12 to 16 years old. They will be trained to gain knowledge about energy consumption, energy conservation, renewable energy sources to develop environmental awareness and become ambassadors of clean energy. The project was presented by SOFENA expert Marc-Antoine Andreu.
