Poland Renewables Report

BMI View: Poland's reluctance to adopt stringent EU emissions targets for 2030 sends warning signals to potential investors in the country's renewables industry. Poland's wavering support for renewable energy and - by extension - the uncertain regulatory environment has long been a key concern, undermining the long-term growth prospects of the sector. This uncertainty is reflected in what was believed to be, in April 2014 the final approval by the Polish government of the RES law: on the contrary, in October 2014, the Ministry of the Economy submitted to parliament a set of additional proposed amendments . The final draft of the act on renewable energy sources was finally adopted by the Polish parliament on 20 February 2015. The Act will now be put forward for the Polish president ' s signature. The adopted solutions will bring about a radical change in the support scheme for RES in Poland. The government wants to decrease the level of state support for RES. It has been estimated that the cost of the previous sup port system would amount to PLN 8.90 bn by 2020, whereas the cost of a new support scheme would a mount only to PLN 4.26 bn during the same time period. This confirms our view that the current government will continue to favour coal fired generation.

Poland aims to derive 15% of its energy production from renewable sources by 2020, and we expect the wind and biomass segments to drive growth in the renewables industry. However, Poland remains at odds with the European Commission (EC) amid concerns that implementing green energy policies will destroy Poland's coal mining industry and harm the economy. We do not expect the approach to EU energy policy to change under new Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz, who has adopted a similar tone to her predecessor Donald Tusk (now President of the European Council). In fact, in her first speech to parliament on October 1, Kopacz reiterated the strategic importance of coal and stated that she would not condone any...
