The Romanian affiliate of the French electricity generation and distribution company Gas de France Suez (GDF Suez) has submitted an application for a license in Bulgaria.

The news was reported during the Tuesday meeting of Bulgaria’s National Electric Company (NEK).

GDF Suez report they want to enter the Bulgarian market now because there are signs of recovery, but do not plan to sell electricity inside the country rather purchase electric power from local producers and offer it in Romania, Greece and Turkey.
