On 10 November 2009 the Council of Ministers adopted Polish Energy Policy until 2030. The Policy has been prepared within the Ministry of Economy. Thisdocument outlines a long-term strategy for the entire Polish energy sector, fuel and energy demand forecasts. The Policy also outlines a comprehensive programme of policies and measures to be implemented by 2012.
The Strategy addresses the most important challenges of the Polish energy sector both from a short- and long-term perspective. The measures outlined in the strategy are designed to offer solutions to these challenges, and their implementation will help satisfy a growing demand for energy, develop generation and transmission infrastructure, reduce dependence on external supplies of natural gas and crude oil as well as fulfil international obligations within the scope of environmental protection.
The policy specifies six basic directions for the development of Polish energy sector:
These energy policy directions are highly complementary. Implementing measures in accordance with the above directions, the energy policy will aim to enhance country’s energy security while observing the principle of sustainable development.
The Energy Policy contains detailed goals and implementation activities, along with a specific method for their accomplishment. Timeframes for implementation have been determined and responsible entities appointed.
Renewable energy activities include developing a path towards achieving the EU climate package goals, including by type of renewable energy source and by technology. The Energy Policy sets the following targets for renewable energy development:
Support will be given inter alia to the development of agricultural biogas plants, biomass plants, and onshore and offshore wind farms.
