Poland generates around 85 percent of its electricity by burning climate-damaging coal. Lignite and lignite mining and power generation are an economic factor with a strong lobby. Renewable energies play a subordinate role. Rather, the government plans to build nuclear power plants to meet the growing demand for electricity. The European Union urges the country to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and to expand renewable energies.
Low expansion of renewable energies
According to figures from the European Wind Association, around 5,800 megawatts of wind power were connected to the grid at the end of 2017 in Poland. In 2016, newly added capacity amounted to a decent 682 megawatts. But only a diminishing 41 megawatts of wind energy capacity was added in 2017. The use of solar energy is even lower.
