About Us

The Black Sea Energy Research Centre is an association of energy experts prominent in the different fields of the energy science and practice. The Centre was created in 2007 in Sofia, Bulgaria, as a non-profit organization, aimed to continue and build upon the achievements of the Black Sea Regional Energy Centre established in 1995 by an initiative of the European Commission and the countries of the Black Sea Region. In this sense, BSERC goes forward in the development of the co-operation between the Black Sea region countries and Bulgaria on the one side and the European Union on the other side, in the energy field, and puts an emphasis on research.
