  • 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. Other ministries and public agencies are also involved in different ways: the Ministry of Treasury is in charge of restructuring public energy companies, and the Ministry of the Environment contributes to the climate policy.

  • Energy Companies


    The three largest companies, PGE, Tauron Polska Energia and ENEA, accounted for 2/3 of the capacity and nearly 70% of the power generation in 2017. The Government's plan to merge PGE and Energa, as well as Tauron and ENEA, to boost their investments has been postponed until the restructuring of the coal sector.

  • Energy Supply


    Although Poland is relatively poor in conventional hydrocarbons (oil reserves of 22 Mt and natural gas reserves of 56 bcm end-2017), it has substantial coal (19 Gt) and lignite reserves (5.5 Gt). In 2012, the Polish Geological Institute estimated the recoverable shale gas resources between 346 bcm and 768 bcm. Poland's tight gas reserves are estimated at 1 500-2 000 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, which had been declining since 2010 (-4.6%/year until 2014), have stabilised since then at around €14.5c/kWh. Household prices rose steadily between 2003 and 2012 and declined slightly (-1.6%/year) through 2016. Both grew ...

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2017, total energy consumption per capita was 2.8 toe (13% below the EU average), including around 3 900 kWh of electricity (30% below the EU average).

    Total energy consumption increased by 1.2%/year between 2000 and 2011 and then declined until 2014 (-2.3%/year). Energy consumption has been recovering since then (+3.2%/year) thanks to the economic growth, reaching 105 Mtoe in ...

  • 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. The share of renewables should double between 2010 and 2020, reaching 12% of primary consumption.
