GENERAL INFO

  • Poland - country in Central Europe

  • 312.680 km2area;38,7 mlnpeople

  • Forests - 28,1 % Poland, i.e. 8.8 mln ha.

  • Agricultural lands –ca. 60% of the Poland.

  • 38% of the population live in the rural areas.

  • Agriculture and forestry give 4.8% of GDP but 27% of the employed in Poland work in agriculture (0.4% in forestry).

  • Rural areas have a very high unemployment rate 18%, reaching even 50% in some places.


Energy sector res

ENERGY SECTOR & RES

  • The energy sector is dominated by the hard coal

  • Electricity is produced in 98% from fossile fuels

  • 68% of heat demand in urban areas is met by district heating networks.

  • The share of the other energy sources inc. renewables is growing slowly, in 2001 it was ca. 2,9% of total primary energy consumption (in that 98 % biomass)

  • Total primary energy consumption is slowly decreasing (in 2000 it was 3812,4 PJ).


Res policy making and strategic documents

RES-Policy making and strategic documents


Environmental policy

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

  • „National Development Plan”

  • „Kyoto Protocol”

    • Kyoto Protocol ratified in 2002: 6% emission reduction within 2008-2012comparing to 1988,

  • „Second Environmental Policy”

  • „ Polish Development Strategy Of Renewable Energy Sector”


The regional reeep meeting 3 4 july szentendre 2003

(1) POLISH DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY OF RENEWABLE ENERGY SECTOR

Poland has adopted already the national renewable energy strategy

(by the Polish Parliament in 2001)

and is harmonising its environmental

and energy policy with those of EU


The regional reeep meeting 3 4 july szentendre 2003

(2) POLISH DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY OF RENEWABLE ENERGY SECTOR

Strategic targets:

  • 7,5% in 2010

  • 14% in 2020

    increase of the total

    energy production

    from RES by235 PJ

    (up to 340 PJ)


Energy policy

ENERGY POLICY

  • „Assumptions of the Poland’s Energy Policy to 2020”, 2000

  • „Energy Act”, 1997 (amendments 2000, 2002)

  • „Thermodernisation Act”

  • „Quota obligation ordinance”

ENERGY POLICY-ORDINANCES

„ Quota obligation ordinance”,2000

  • Electricity suppliers are obliged to buy from national producers offered amount of electricity and heat from renewable energy sources (2.4% in 2001, 7.5% in 2010)

  • Problems:

    - lack of tariffs

    - lack of fines for not fulfiling the obligation


Energy policy a new ordinance

ENERGY POLICY- A NEW ORDINANCE

„Quota obligation ordinance”,2003

  • The obligation of buying RES energy moved to the Energy Act

  • Definition of biomass and biogas

  • Permited co-firing of biofules with fossil fuels


Agricultural policy

AGRICULTURAL POLICY

  • A draft „Act on Biofules Market”

  • „Act on agricultural tax”

    • 25% reduction of agricultural tax in case of RES investment(valid during 15 years after construction of installation)

    • Central budget, local governments’s budget- National Development Plan

  • For production of RES electricity:

    Exemption of excise tax on electricity 0.02 PLN/kWh (0.056 Euro) c. 10% of electricity price (Excise Ordinance)

  • To support production:

    Exemption of excise tax on fuels – around 45% of the fuel price for bioethanol (Excise Ordinance-each year)
