Bulgaria's summer exports of electricity have marked a 30%-40% increase over the same period last year, Energy Minister Milko Kovachev announced in Pernik.

He described the country as an energy center on the Balkans. Kovachev forecasted that negotiations with Turkey over power exports will be soon renewed.

All neighbor countries are in a difficult position regarding the electricy maket, he said.

Bulgaria's National Electricity Transmission Company exports electricity to Greece, Albania, Montenegro and Macedonia and is currently the only electricity exporter on the Balkans after Romania's Cherna Voda nuclear plant suspended its operations because of the critically low water level of the Danube River.
