In 2020, the electricity demand in Bulgaria stood at 30.9TWh, more than half of which is fulfilled by nuclear power generation. Even during 2000-2030, nuclear power will be the dominant source for power generation in the country. The Bulgarian government is in talks with US and Russian Government for the development of new nuclear power capacity. In 2020, the country has only one nuclear power station known as the Kozloduy nuclear power plant (NPP) which has six units. After the decommission of Unit 1 and 2 Kozloduy NPP in 2002 and unit 3 and 4 in 2006, all the nuclear power is generated through unit 5 and unit 6.
