On Tuesday, the government adopted a resolution on Poland’s energy policy until 2040, the Government Information Center reported. PEP is based on three main pillars – a just transition, building a zero-emission energy system and good air quality.

PEP 2040 assumes that the reduction of coal use in the economy will take place in a manner ensuring a just transformation.

In addition, in 2030, the share of renewable energy in gross final energy consumption will be at least 23 percent, the installed capacity of offshore wind farms will be approx. 5.9 GW in 2030 and up to approx. 11 GW in 2040, and in 2033 the first block of the nuclear power plant will be launched, with a capacity of approx. 1-1.6 GW. Subsequent blocks will be implemented every 2-3 years, and the entire nuclear program involves the construction of 6 blocks.

Further elements are the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 by about 30 percent compared to 1990, and by 2040 heating all households with system heat and zero- or low-emission individual sources.
