The reason for developing, producing and utilizing "Green Energy" is a very simple one. It is because in the very near future renewable energy could be the only source available. This is the main motivation for choosing to research this matter. This research focuses on the future of "Green energy" in Bulgaria and the opportunities of developing and producing it by small and medium enterprises. The importance of this topic is not only related to the future energy sources available to the Bulgarian people but also to the impacts on the environment and the global climate change. The first approach of the study was to examine secondary information available and to create an analytical model in the form of a cost-benefit analysis in order to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of producing and using "Green energy". The second approach was to conduct a primary research on the subject in the form of a survey. An extensive amount of literature has been reviewed and 115 people have responded to the survey by filling in a questionnaire. Based on the results and findings of the research the conclusion is that the future of the Bulgarian power sector lies in the development and production of "Green energy". Most of the survey respondents think that renewable energy production in Bulgaria will increase, it is good for the environment and has a positive effect on global climate change. Additionally, people are prepared to pay more taxes in order to encourage and support "Green energy" production. Most of the respondents also think that the Bulgarian authorities do not do enough to promote and help renewable energy expansion and growth, government policies are ineffective and the whole sector is highly bureaucratic and thus inefficient.
