What goes on in Poland on the 22nd of April.

The embargo on crude oil from Russia will make fuel immediately 1 PLN more expensive

According to POPiHN, oil prices could drop, but countries dependent on oil sales, such as Russia and the powers of the OPEC cartel, do not want to increase supply. Polish refineries are already getting ready for a possible embargo, and the president of POPiHN revealed that the renovation of the Gdańsk Refinery is to make its work more flexible. An embargo introduced immediately would raise fuel prices by PLN 1 per liter. Gradual will not affect the market.

– Diversification is accelerating. This process has been taking place slowly for ten years, but we can be sure that 61 percent of the crude oil processed in Polish refineries last year came from the Russian Federation. Certainly, this percentage will be much lower at the end of the year. In a situation where our fuel consumption is still as high as today, apart from crude oil, we can also import ready-made fuels from neighboring countries, but our partners are Saudi Arabia, the United States, Great Britain and Norway, said the president of the Polish Oil Industry and Trade Organization, Leszek Wiwała.

– German and Slovak refineries are the first flush. We imported diesel from them last year and we still do. The second line is Lithuania and the Czech Republic. This is our plan currently being implemented. When it turns out that there is still not enough fuel, it will be necessary to reach for deliveries from other directions. Saudi Aramco becomes a natural choice, but the further, the higher the transport costs will be, said the president of POPiHN.

The climate ministry is working on the liberalization of the distance act

At the request of Minister Anna of Moscow, the draft amendment to the act of 20 May 2016 on investments in wind farms was submitted to the Ministry of Climate and Environment in order to continue legislative work. The government plenipotentiary for renewable energy, Ireneusz Zyska, will be responsible for their finalization.

After the change of the project host, works and analyzes are underway to quickly submit the project for consideration by the Standing Committee of the Council of Ministers.

Making the so-called flexible The 10H principle is crucial for the further development of onshore wind technology and the possibility of using cheap energy for industry. The new proposals are aimed at modifying the regulations that will allow for the implementation of new investments in the field of erecting wind farms. Presented in March this year. The assumptions for the update of the Polish Energy Policy until 2040 provide for further development of renewable energy sources and dynamics in all sectors, which, with increased ambitions, may mean reaching 50 GW of installed capacity in renewable sources as early as 2030.
