19th and 20th November, the Royal Danish Embassy is organising two workshops entitled „Energy Efficiency in Buildings and Micro & Small RES installations as a contribution to low emission economy”. They workshops are taking place in Gdansk and Slupsk, and are organized in cooperation with the Pomeranian Marshall Office, City of Slupsk and with the Regional Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management in Gdansk.

The event is a part of the embassy’s three-year project "SMART LIVING - in the sphere of innovation" facilitating an exchange of knowledge, ideas and experiences in several thematic fields promoting the idea of "smart cities".

The main goal of the workshops is to present Polish and Danish examples of local energy plans, which result in implementation of projects focused on energy efficient solutions.


During the last 20 years Poland has achieved one of the greatest progresses in scope of the use of efficient energy. Energy saving investments are supported through preferential loans and grants from the national and European funds. The goal is to annually save up to 94 000 MWh of energy through construction of energy efficient buildings both in the private and public sectors.

Just within the framework of the Regional Operational Programme for Pomorskie Province for 2014-2020, more than PLN 150 mio. (approx. EUR 38 mio.) will be spent on financing projects in the field of energy efficiency. The maximum level of funding from the Programme is 85%.


20th February 2015 Polish parliament passed a long-awaited act on renewable energy sources. The act includes fixed feed-in tariffs for installations below 10 kW, which has already opened a huge prosumer market accounting for at least 200,000 prosumers.

These prosumers will receive PLN 0.75/kWh (EUR 18c/kWh) for plants up to 3 kW, while plants between 3 and 10 kW will receive up to PLN 0.7/kWh (EUR 16.9c/kWh), depending on the type of used technology.

The most popular technologies are photovoltaics and micro wind turbines, but heat pumps and micro biogas power plants should join this category in the nearest future. Additionally to support the development of micro and small RES, Polish authorities have prepared tailor-made financial tools based on the 2014-2020 EU funding, which are being distributed on the regional and the national level.
