Bulgarian government has said it aims to increase energy saving to 22.594 Gwh by 2020 in comparison to quantity of sold energy between 2010 and 2012, SeeNews reported.

With the expected saving amounting to 1.94 million tonnes of oil equivalent  (TOE), Bulgaria is following rules for energy efficiency set by European Union’s 2012 Energy Efficiency Directive.

The Directive obliges all EU members to help the Union’s goal of reaching 20% energy efficiency by 2020.
