Bulgaria's energy strategy through 2020 is going to be discussed Wednesday at a forum with the participation of Bulgaria's Economy and Energy Minister Petar Dimitrov, the Darik radio reports.

The strategy has been prepared on the base of the European Commission's (EC) program documents for the energy sector.

The European energy strategy has three main priorities until 2020 - to limit negative climate changes, limit the dependence of resources from outside the European Union, provide easy access to energy for consumers.

According to Bulgaria's national goals, by 2020 the country must increase the efficiency of local energy production to save EUR 6 M per year and reduce the harmful emissions by 50 million tons per year. Another goal is to increase the share of electric power produced by water sources to 16% of all electric power in Bulgaria.
