Energy Agency of Plovdiv (EAP) was established in 2000 as the first SAVE agency in Bulgaria. The agency is promoting efficient and sustainable use of energy and renewable energy. Its services are utilised by the public administration, businesses communities, and consumers. It carries out feasibility studies, energy and environmental analyses and modelling, energy and air quality projects identification, development and management. More than 50 EU projects were successfully completed.
It is a founder of the Association of Bulgarian Energy Agencies (АBEA) and Green Synergy Cluster and a proud member of FEDARENE and NATUREEF networks.
Energy Agency of Plovdiv is a science-based organization developing and implementing technical, environmental and social innovations in the field of EE&RES, energy efficient engineering solutions, advanced renewable biofuels and materials. The activities of EAP cover: energy and environmental modelling, management and planning at local and regional level; energy and environmental analyses, emissions inventories, energy auditing of buildings and SMEs, designing of EE measures implementation; development of sustainable energy communities/smart cities; emissions inventories and monitoring; testing of biofuels, compost and bio-wastes; development of new EE and RE/clean energy technologies; ISO 50001 and carbon footprint consultations; technical support and advice, pilot projects implementations. Development of training and education materials is also among the main priorities.
Two main research centres are functioning as Offices for knowledge transfer providing laboratory and consultancy services in one. The first one is the Bioenergy Research and Innovation Centre that provides leading research and innovation activities as well as core expertise and competence in the fields of bioenergy and bioeconomy. The research infrastructure of the centre includes the Analytical Laboratory for Testing of Solid Biofuels, Compost and Bio-waste accredited to ISO 17025. The Laboratory is one of the 30 laboratories worldwide approved by the European Biomass Association as a testing body for the ENPlus pellets certification scheme. The second research unit is the Centre for Integrated Management of the Air Quality, EE and RES that provides research and innovations in the field of air quality and energy measurements, monitoring, management and modelling. Emissions measurements of stationary source-heating and industrial installations using a portable emissions analyser (gas analyser for engines, turbines, boilers, furnaces, and more) as well as imissions measurements of PM10, PM2,5 , NOx carried out by the Mobile Air Quality Laboratory at the Center.
The other activities of the EAP cover: public, residential and commercial building inspections through a drone-mounted thermal imaging camera to identify air leakage and thermal bridges and to support energy auditing of any type of buildings and installations. The thermal imaging camera is used for detection and visualization of air infiltration and exfiltration, as well as inspection to reveal missing insulation, HVAC air flow and equipment issues, radiant heating malfunctions, compromised roofing, and much more.

On March 2, the Energy Agency of Plovdiv together with the national Sustainable Energy Development Agency (SEDA) held a Round Table "Consulting citizens on energy efficiency and RES issues through one-stop shop services".
QualDeEPC has had its final conference on how Energy Performance Certification can support the deep renovation. Read more about the conclusions in this article. Monday November 28, 2022 - Brussels
Here we are in November 2022, the last day of our project! We want to thank you, the reader, for your interest in the project, for attending the many events we organized and for supporting the concept of One-Stop Shops for renovation. Our project kicked off in 2019, in Padova (IT), and we are ending it also in this beautiful city, with many new lessons learned.
Energy Agency of Plovdiv, in its capacity as a member of FEDARENE - the European Federation of Agencies and Regions for Energy and Environment and of the Consultative Commission for Energy Transition to the Council of Ministers, supports the proposed by the European Parliament (14.5% target for EE by 2030).
