Poland currently generates around 70 percent of its electricity by burning climate-damaging coal. Mining and power generation of hard coal and lignite are an economic factor with a strong lobby. So far, renewable energies have played a subordinate role. Partly as a result of pressure from the European Union, Poland announced last year that it would increase the share of green energy from 20 percent today to 27 percent by 2030.
Low expansion of renewable energies
At the end of 2019, almost 9,500 megawatts of renewable energies were connected to the grid in Poland. Since 2016, practically no wind projects have been commissioned. After all, Poland awarded tariffs for 2.9 gigawatts of wind energy at two large onshore tenders. A positive development is also noticeable with solar energy: In terms of new installations, Poland ranked fifth in the EU in 2019 with 1 GW.
