The Environment and Energy Ministers of Greece and Bulgaria signed a memorandum of further collaboration on energy issues in Athens on Thursday.

The memorandum - which focuses on electric energy, natural gas, renewable energy sources (RES), and hydrogen - was signed by Environment and Energy Minister Thodoros Skylakakis and his Bulgarian counterpart, Energy Minister Rumen Radev.

Also present at the signing were Deputy Environment & Energy Minister Alexandra Sdoukou and her counterpart Iva Petrova, and well as Bulgarian Ambassador to Athens, Valentin Poriazov.

Under the memorandum, some of the targets the two countries aim for include constructing and expanding hydrogen transport networks, improving the production of RES and hydrogen in the Northeastern European region, continuing the digitization of power grids of both countries to manage and balance the systems between them, and promoting joint projects of EU and regional interest, in order to change into a climate-neutral economy.

The bilateral meeting of the two ministers and the memorandum signing are part of a series of actions in the context of the 'Ministerial Meeting of the High Level Group on Central and South Eastern Europe Energy Connectivity (CESEC)' taking place in Athens on Thursday and Friday.
