Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH) is the holding company for a group of companies which are principally engaged in electricity generation, supply and transmission, natural gas transmission, supply and storage and coal mining. BEH Group holds a leading position in the electricity and gas market in Bulgaria and, through electricity exports, in the Balkans. BEH is wholly owned by the Bulgarian state and is the largest state-owned company in terms of total assets in the country. The rights of ownership of the state are exercised by the Minister of Energy.
The Group owns the main electricity generation facilities in the country as well as the electricity transmission grid and the gas transmission and transit networks. The Group is also the public supplier of both electricity and gas in Bulgaria and it is therefore a strategically important state company. The Group's market share of Bulgaria's electricity generation was 57% in 2022 when it had an installed electricity generation capacity of 6.3 GW and generated 28.6 TWh of electricity.
BEH Group continues to elaborate on new opportunities for natural gas transmission networks development in order to guarantee supplies from various sources and along any possible route, expanding the existing interconnections of Bulgaria with all neighbouring countries.
