  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy is in charge of the country's energy policy, markets and infrastructure along with energy efficiency and energy security matters. It oversees public companies dealing with coal production, electricity and petroleum extraction.

    For other state-owned enterprises, mainly in the downstream oil industry, this role is assumed by the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, ...

  • Energy Companies


    The three largest companies, PGE, Tauron Polska Energia, and ENEA, accounted for 2/3 of the capacity and the power generation in 2018. The government's plan to merge PGE and Energa, as well as Tauron and ENEA, has been postponed until the restructuring of the coal sector.

  • Energy Supply


    Although Poland is relatively poor in conventional hydrocarbons (oil reserves of 16 Mt and natural gas reserves of 73 bcm end-2019), it has substantial coal (21 Gt) and lignite reserves (5.9 Gt) in 2019. The recoverable shale gas resources are estimated by the Polish Geological Institute at between 346 and 768 bcm. Poland's tight gas reserves are estimated at 1 245 bcm and coal bed ...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices increased sharply following the liberalisation of the economy (nearly doubling since 2000) but are around 30% below the EU average.

    Industrial prices increased by 5.3%/year between 2016 and 2019.

    Household prices were stable in 2017 and 2018 and declined by 4% in 2019.Taxes account for 20% for households, but 1% for industry (2019).

    In 2019, the weighted ...

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2019, total energy consumption per capita was 2.7 toe (13% below the EU average), including around 3 900 kWh of electricity (30% below the EU average).

    Total energy consumption declined by 3.2% in 2019. Previously, it increased by 2.9%/year between 2015 and 2018.


    Coal and lignite covered 43% of the country's needs ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    Poland is confronted with the challenge of modernising and restructuring of the coal and lignite sector.

    Under the Polish Energy Policy until 2030, primary energy consumption is assumed to increase by 1.5%/year between 2020 and 2030. According to the draft energy policy, "Towards Poland's 2040 Energy Mix", the energy demand is expected to ramp up by 20% to 25% by 2040.
