Climate Minister, Michał Kurtyka during the “Polityka Insight” conversation, pointed out that the final version of PEP2040 should appear by the end of 2020. He also added that the ongoing pandemic may force some assumptions to change.

“Financing transformation requires the relocation of energy assets. Without this, companies will have difficulty in obtaining funds for green investments. We also need to redefine the role of coal-fired power plants in the energy system,” Michał Kurtyka emphasized in an interview with Polityka Insight.

The updated strategy assumes: 50-60 percent the share of coal in electricity generation in 2030, 21-23 percent Renewable energy in gross final energy consumption in 2033, implementation of nuclear energy in 2033 in the form of six nuclear reactors, reduction of CO2 emissions by 30% compared to 1990 and an increase in energy efficiency by 23 %, until 2030.
