Energy Policy of Poland until 2030 and 2040 (PEP 2030 and PEP 2040)
The document establishes a number of measures addressing energy demand, including national energy efficiency targets, energy efficiency performance certificates, minimum standards for power-consuming products, supporting investments in energy saving, and applying demand-side management techniques.
It also establishes that energy supply should consist of a mix between cogeneration, renewables, grid modernisation, and nuclear. With this end, the EPP fixes measurable targets, for example: increase the percentage of renewable energy sources to 15% by 2020 and to 20% by 2030; boost the share of biofuels in the transport fuels market to 10%; and building of at least one biogas agricultural plant in each commune by 2020.
The EPP 2030 strategy document establishes the need to gradually increase the share of bio-components fuel in transport fuels so as to meet planned objectives. As a result, the government established differentiated fuel taxes in a way that to promotes alternative fuels.
PEP 2040 was officially released on September 8, 2020. It amends PEP 2030 and mandates a progressive phase-out of hard coal and lignite, investments in nuclear and renewable energy sources.
Increasing the share of biofuels in the market of transport fuels to 10% by 2020, and increasing the use of second generation biofuels
Increasing the use of renewable energy sources in the final energy use to at least 15% in 2020 and further increase in the following years
Reducing the energy intensity of Polish economy to the EU-15 level
10% biofuels in transport by 2020
15% renewable energy of final energy by 2020
