On March 30, 2022, a tripartite memorandum of cooperation was signed in the Bulgarian Industrial Association in the sectors of electric mobility, renewable energy sources and cooperatives.

The President of the Board of BIA Dobri Mitrev welcomed the Chairmen of the National Branch Organization EVIC, Cooperative Cluster and Renewable Energy Sources Cluster. The associations unite their efforts for the development of electric mobility and renewable energy sources in Bulgaria and the Balkan region.

As a nationally representative employers' organization, the Bulgarian Industrial Association supports the efforts of domestic entrepreneurs to create new market niches, to implement innovations in business.

The three organizations are about to launch a project to build new solar parks and connect them to management through smart grids. A valuable partner will be the numerous sites, part of the cooperative cluster, on whose territories will be part of these parks. Thus, the kind of energy cooperatives will produce the so-called "green energy", which will be targeted for charging stations and networks for electric vehicles.

EVIC will support the project with participation in the development of charging infrastructure, improvement of the regulatory framework, development of the SSEM model for vocational, secondary and higher education, creating a logistics and courier company consuming only green energy. The startup company BullCharge will also be involved in the project.

Bulgarian business no longer has the right to be a passive observer of the rapid development of world economies. Bulgaria has its own history and good examples of innovation and leadership, the introduction of new technologies and good business practices. New technologies and the connection between them are a real opportunity that Bulgarian society should not miss.
