2019 NOV 11 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Daily News -- Investigators publish new report on Energy. According to news reporting originating from Krakow, Poland, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “The fuel mix of electricity generation in Poland is currently based predominantly on solid fuels. In addition, the generation power base is outdated.”

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the Polish Academy of Sciences, “Many of the generating units are inefficient, uneconomic, and do not comply ecological standards, so they should be withdrawn from use in the near future. Poland, which consumes approximately 170 TWh of electricity, needs to determine the direction of the further development of the energy sector. The concepts of covering domestic demand for electricity were outlined by the government in the draft Energy Policy of Poland until 2040, where it was pointed out that the most important pillars of the Energy Policy should be the following: The energy security of the country, competitiveness, and the improvement of the energy efficiency of the economy, as well as limiting the impact on the environment. The article presents the current state of the Polish power sector and the directional changes planned by the government in the area of new capacities for the power industry. The authors present a critical evaluation of this document indicating the opportunities and threats in the area of its implementation.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “In contrast to many European countries, the Polish government is not considering coal phase-out.”
