In cafebabel here, you can find this interesting statement.
The Bulgarian electrical energy system is based on the communist model, which does not meet EU requirements: a state controlled market, lack of innovation, high O2 omissions and low energy efficiency (between two and eight times lower than the European average).
I wasn't sure exactly what to make of:
- a state controlled market (er, apart from the oxymoron, isn't that what Sarkozy and the G20 are planning for the financial sector)
- high O2 omissions (omitting O2 would have been fatal for communism, but it was pretty good at emitting CO2 as well).
