Poland

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, Poland has committed at least USD 14.03 billion to supporting different energy types through new or amended policies, according to official government sources and other publicly available information. These public money commitments include:

  • At least USD 2.71 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 13 policies (10 quantified and 3 unquantified)
  • At least USD 3.77 billion for conditional fossil fuels through 7 policies (2 quantified and 5 unquantified)
  • At least USD 399.83 million for unconditional clean energy through 25 policies (17 quantified and 8 unquantified)
  • At least USD 7.08 billion for conditional clean energy through 24 policies (17 quantified and 7 unquantified)
  • At least USD 79.49 million for other energy through 11 policies (2 quantified and 9 unquantified)

By energy type, Poland committed at least USD 1.95 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 1.95 billion to unconditional oil and gas).

In addition, Poland committed at least USD 747.10 million to coal (at least USD 747.10 million to unconditional coal).

Further, no public money commitments identified for hydrogen based on fossil fuels.

Finally, Poland committed at least USD 12.82 million to multiple fossil fuels (at least USD 12.82 million to unconditional multiple fossil fuels).

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of Poland through monetary and fiscal policies in response to the crisis may also benefit different elements of the energy sector. However, these values are not available from official legislation and statements and therefore are not included in the database. Meanwhile, in addition to monetary and fiscal measures, the database lists other policies and regulations that can also provide benefits to producers and consumers of different energy types.

These public money commitments are additional to many other government policies that had existed to support different energy types before the COVID19 pandemic.

This decision removes provisions allowing a one-off extension of the concession for the extraction of hard coal, lignite and native sulfur extracted with the borehole method without the need to obtain a prior decision on environmental conditions. The proposed changes do not eliminate the possibility of a single extension of the concessions in question but rather repeals the provisions exempting them from the requirement to attach a decision on environmental conditions when applying for a one-time extension of the above-mentioned concessions.

Poland National Clean unconditional Commission approves €22.5 billion Polish scheme to support offshore wind farms Power generation Wind Other hybrid support measures 2021052020/05/2021 Other Electricity generation EU Commission Government To support offshore wind technology. The measure will help Poland reach its renewable energy targets without unduly distorting competition. 20/05/2021 01/01/2030 The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, a Polish scheme to support offshore wind technology. The measure will help Poland reach its renewable energy targets without unduly distorting competition. Poland notified the Commission of its intention to introduce a new scheme to support offshore wind farms. Offshore wind technology is at an initial stage in Poland. The aid will be granted in the form of a two-way contract-for-difference premium, during 25 years, but only up to 100,000 full load hours per MegaWatt of installed capacity. Under this model, this variable premium is calculated as the difference between the reference price and the market price for electricity. When the market price is below the reference price, beneficiaries will be entitled to receive payments equal to the difference between the two prices. However, when the market price is above the reference price, beneficiaries will have to pay the difference between the two prices to the State. The scheme will roll out in two phases. During the first phase of the scheme, offshore projects will be granted aid using the exception to the auction requirement, due to the existence of a very limited number of projects. The reference price for projects in the first phase will be administratively fixed based on their costs, with a maximum set at 319,60 PLN/MWh (€71,82/MWh). After obtaining the environmental permit which will fix the final technical characteristics of the project, each project will submit an individual notification with a business plan to the Commission. Based on the respective business plan, the Commission will assess individually the specific level of operating aid. Under the second phase of the scheme, aid will be granted through open and competitive auctions which will be organised as of 2025, and the reference price of projects will be fixed based on the respective bid. The scheme has a total maximum budget of €22.5 billion and will run until 2030.

Support also consists of a preferential loan of PLN 750 million. According to WiseEuropa: "The largest coal mining company in Poland, PGG, is set to receive short-term state aid in the form of PLN 1.75 bn (EUR 0.4 bn) loan from the Polish Development Fund (PFR) under the Anticrisis Shield. In the previous months, the PFR was reluctant to provide the loan to PGG, stressing that the unprofitable mining company has to present a credible restructuring plan. The recent amendments to the rules of the Anti-Crisis Shield allow the PFR to shift the responsibility for the decision by requesting government consent to provide a loan. It is expected that the PGG will receive the loan soon, allowing it to maintain the liquidity for several more months and providing more time for the talks with the mining trade unions and negotiations with the EC regarding the state aid."

The three main pillars of the country's energy policy are: a just transition, a zero-emissions energy system, and good air quality. The document also indicates the expected energy mix to 2040. The plan still needs approval from the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy and various committees within the Chancellary of the Prime Minister. The Ministry of Climate presented new draft of the Energy Policy of Poland until 2040 (PEP2040). Among other things, the document presents forecasts for the power sector evolution under the baseline and high (estimated based on the EU-wide 55% reduction target) emission allowance price scenario. In the latter case, the coal share in electricity production drops to 37.5% in 2030 and 11% in 2040. On the other hand, it does not address limitations and costs arising from the suppressed development of the onshore wind projects, while embracing development of PV and offshore wind, as well as assuming deployment of the first nuclear power plant in 2033.

It is anticipated that the support for investors will be granted for a period of 25 years. The new act introduces a number of improvements. Administrative and legal procedures have been simplified, reducing the time in which investors can implement investments in offshore wind farms. In the first phase of the system's operation, for farms with a total capacity of 5.9 GW, support will be granted by way of an administrative decision by the President of the Energy Regulatory Office. The possibility of entering this system ends on June 30, 2021. In the following years, support will be granted in the formula of competitive auctions. The second auction is expected to take place in 2025 and the third in 2027, leading to a total of 5 GW of additional capacity built. A tax will also be included in the act; offshore wind is not subject to a real estate tax. The new act provides that investors will be required to conduct a dialogue with potential suppliers of materials and services for the implementation of offshore wind farms. Polish companies will therefore have the opportunity to become part of the supply chain of services and technologies necessary for the operation of offshore wind farms. The Ministry of Climate and Environment predicts that the new regulations will encourage investors and accelerate the process of transformation of the Polish energy sector into zero-emission energy sources. After 2020, Poland, as well as other EU Member States, are required to generate at least 15% of electricity from renewable sources. Though it was envisioned that the law would come into effect Jan. 1, 2021, the Senate Special Committee for Climate Affairs will only get to this issue in early Jan. If there will be no amendments to the law, the President could sign it by mid-Jan., allowing the law to come into effect by Feb. On 13 Jan. 2021, the Senate unanimously supported the bill, sending it for approval to the President. On Jan. 22, 2021, the President signed the new act, signalling a move towards low-emission and zero-emission electricity.

The liquidation of individual mines will occur in phases between 2021 and 2049. Coal miners are guaranteed their jobs until retirement; if this is not possible, they will be covered by a social protection plan. While this is a step in the right direction for the country, the agreement indicates that the state will continue to subsidize coal until 2049. For this reason, it is unclear whether the EC wil sign off on this plan (the EC must approve of the state aid plans for the policy to come into effect). The agreement does not cover coking coal mines in Silesia nor coal mining activities in Eastern Poland.
