Alternative Regional Just Transition Profile of Stara Zagora

Policy Brief No.132

Stara Zagora is the largest coal district in Bulgaria and its economy is highly dependent on fossil fuels. The bulk of the local industries are energy intensive and have been slow to take up low-carbon technological solutions. The district holds the potential to more than offset the lost revenue and jobs in the coal sector with new opportunities in industrial manufacturing, which shows the biggest growth potential over the past de­cade.

Stepping on a comprehensive stakeholder consultations and survey, CSD’s current analysis zooms into the key socio-economic characteristics of the district, presenting an alternative perspective of the short- and long-term decarbonisation challenges and potential for economic transformation of Stara Zagora district.
