Energy and environment

Danish companies are among the best in the world when it comes to renewable energy solutions. With the EU's renewable energy requirements and the increased awareness of air pollution, the potential on the Polish market is huge.

Development of the renewable energy sector used to be one of the priorities for the Polish government. That slightly chanced when the new government took office in late 2015. However, according to 20/20/20 goals, EU member states have to gradually increase the share of energy from renewable sources in total energy consumption and the transportation sector.  Almost 90% of the energy in Poland is produced from coal, so the need for green solutions is pressing.

The specific objectives of the Polish energy policy are as following: to increase the proportion of energy from renewable sources in final energy consumption up to 15.5% in 2020 (19.3% for electricity, 17% for heating and cooling, 10.2% for transportation fuels). Achieving these objectives requires investments in new generation capacities. Even after 2020 the effort to make the Polish economy greener should be continued. In October 2014 the EU leaders agreed on new EU climate and energy policy targets for 2030. The new policy sets a target of at least 27% share of energy consumption produced from renewable resources, 27% improvement in the EU's energy efficiency, and 40 % reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 level.

Poland is also gradually becoming an attractive destination for investments in manufacturing of devices used in energy generation. There are estimated to be more than 200 production companies working for the renewable energy sector.
