Who we are
Enery Bulgaria

From its entry into the Bulgarian market, Enery strives to be a responsible employer, promoting the implementation of various social and environmental projects aimed at improving living conditions in communities and protecting the environment. Numerous social initiatives attest to this. 

The team, based in the village of Karadzhalovo, is responsible for the O&M and monitoring of the photovoltaic power plant, while the team in Sofia consists of diverse specialists in finance, energy trading, law, IT, and others. 

One of Enery’s missions is to provide businesses with clean and green energy at affordable prices, helping companies easily plan their energy budgets and achieve their ESG goals. 

Enery has serious investment intentions in Bulgaria and is in the process of business development for several projects with significant capacity, which will create new jobs and contribute to decarbonization and sustainable green development in the country. 

Our Projects in Bulgaria

Enery is renewable energy company with a bold vision for Bulgaria. Enery launched its business in Bulgaria in 2020 with the acquisition of the Karadzhalovo Photovoltaic Power Plant in Plovdiv district. The company’s goal is to provide top-quality O&M for its power plants, in accordance with the highest H&S standards.

Here are some of the social and biodiversity projects which our team organized in Bulgaria:
Solar Donation for the Hospital in Corabia

January 2024 

At Enery, we’re passionate about making a meaningful difference in our local communities through impactful social projects. 

That’s why we jumped at the chance to help our local Corabia Municipal Hospital in Romania cut down on energy costs and go green. We’ve installed a 25.6 kW solar panel system on their rooftop, and we’re excited about the difference it will make. 

The installed solar panels will help the hospital spend less on electricity and invest in other needs. It’s a straightforward change that brings them one step closer to sustainability without complexity. 

Road safety coloring book

Commitment to education and supporting children and young people in their development is a primary
part of our ESG strategy. We prepared a book dedicated to road safety for kids, featuring streetlights,
road signs, crosswalks, and safety gear to color, along with exciting games and tasks reinforcing essential
safety lessons. In addition to having fun coloring and playing, children will also learn how to make safe
choices when navigating the streets, making this book both entertaining and educational.

Light for Romania: Empowering Lives through green energy

June 2023

Thanks to our employee Luiza Lazea, Enery found a new great partner in the face of Free Miorita NGO in Romania.

The organization helps households with no access to electricity to improve their living conditions by installing autonomous renewable energy systems. Together, we donated and installed solar panels for six households.

The campaign “Light for Romania” outlines the underestimated issue of underprivileged people in rural regions who are unable to connect to the electrical grid due to their remote living areas and cannot afford to pay for permits, grid connection fees, projects, and utility bills.

This initiative is an example of how renewable energy can improve life quality quickly and efficiently.

A Gift of Solar Power

July, 2022

We are delighted to announce that the Byala Slatina Medical Center and Hospital now boasts its very own 40 kW rooftop photovoltaic system.

This solar installation is a significant leap towards enhancing the facility’s energy self-sufficiency. In the days to come, a substantial portion of their energy needs will be met by this system, resulting in substantial cost savings, and bolstering their energy independence.

This initiative is an integral part of Enery’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, reflecting our commitment to supporting the communities where we operate in Europe. The project was successfully coordinated by our partners at Enery Element GmbH, who have been diligently working on the development of a large-scale PV project in the villages of Gabare and Drashan, located to the northeast of Sofia.

Empowering Our Future Eco-Heroes

June 2023 

At Enery, we firmly believe that education is the key to a sustainable future. By introducing children to renewable energy and teaching them how to keep our environment clean, we empower them to become advocates for positive change.

That is why we created the Let’s Color with Energy coloring book which is suitable for kids in elementary school age.

Feel free to print out the book from our webpage. Parents, educators, and anyone who is passionate about nurturing young minds can use the file.

Let’s create a greener tomorrow, one coloring page at a time!

Help Ukraine Project

March – October 2022

The Help Ukraine project has become one of Enery’s flagship social projects for 2022. It was initiated in response to the war in Ukraine which started in February 2022. Since then, Enery has provided temporary accommodation, document (visa), and general integration support, including language courses to many Ukrainian refugees entering Austria.

Our colleagues in Slovakia provided breakfast to 130 Ukrainian students from a Slovakian-Ukrainian school. They also organized a youth volleyball tournament where they explained to the teams how solar energy is produced and how it can help Europe decarbonize.

In Bulgaria, we supported a green educational center, working with children and families from Ukraine to integrate them. We covered expenses for textbooks, meals, and integrational summer camp.

In total, our efforts supported 440 people through diverse initiatives.

Chance for Bright Future with Omamas

June 2020 – till now

The Omama Project in Slovakia, led by Cesca Von NGO, is dedicated to addressing the challenging circumstances in which children from underprivileged Roma families are raised. Its mission is to provide these children with the opportunities to receive a quality education, secure stable employment, and ultimately become valuable contributors to society. At its core, the project seeks to empower mothers within the community by training them to mentor other mothers and their children.

Cesta Von NGO currently employs approximately 35 Omamas who work in 25 Roma communities throughout Slovakia. Enery has been actively supporting and collaborating with Omama Janka since 2020, and she is now responsible for nurturing and guiding 20 children in the village of Huncovce.

Nedyalko’s co-workers in Rose valley

August 2021 – till now

In our ongoing commitment to enhance pollinator habitats and combat the overall decline in their populations, we embarked on a bee project at our Karadzhalovo power plant in the Thracia region of Bulgaria.

With the invaluable expertise of external bee and vegetation specialists and the dedication of one of our plant employees, Nedyalko Dyalkov, our team in Bulgaria has successfully introduced multiple bee colonies to the solar park and established a pollinator-friendly area.

The success of this project motivated us to replicate it in other countries of operations, like Austria and Romania, and marked the beginning of our Solar honey label.

Bio grass mowers at work

August 2021 – till now

Working in harmony with our surrounding ecosystems and protecting biodiversity is at the core of our ESG strategy. That is why we decided to focus our efforts on multiple land uses for our photovoltaic power plants.

Along with an experienced local farmer, our Czech team introduced a flock of sheep that replaced the traditional grass mowing with machines at the Určice solar park in Moravia. Grazing on fresh green grass, the sheep prevent vegetation from shading the solar panels and impacting their productivity. At the same time, our waste is turned into food for the animals.

That set an example we later used for engaging the same “bio grass mowers” in our power plants in Bulgaria and Romania.

Now, sheep have become a symbol of our efforts to implement a working, sustainable value chain with dual land use at its base.
