The Chair of the Association of Producers of Ecological Energy, Velizar Kiryakov, shared this view in an interview for (Sofia News Agency).

Kiryakov has pointed out that while the Environment Ministry has given up on the idea it floated in December-January to impose a moratorium on new renewable energy projects in order to clear out the mess in the protected areas, it has opted for what he describes as a “tacit moratorium” - not giving any replies to investors’ inquiries about possible new projects.
