Energy for cooperation. Electrification of the Polish economy - a priority for domestic and foreign investors June 21, 202314:00-15:30 online Register here. During the webinar, we will discuss the challenges faced by the energy sector and ways to systematically look at the changes. We will also discuss the perspective of foreign investors on the power sector in Poland. Context The slow development of zero-emission electricity sources in Poland not only deepens the problems of the energy sector, but also interferes the transformation in other sectors. Without access to clean, competitively priced electricity, it will not be possible to decarbonise heating, transport or industrial processes. Despite these interdependencies, the discussion on accelerating the energy transformation in Poland takes place primarily at the level of individual sectors and partial solutions. Systemic change is in the interest of both domestic and foreign investors. Restrictions in access to clean energy are starting to be one of the barriers that prevent foreign investors from investing in Poland, despite many other competitive advantages of our economy. Thus, the lack of discussion about electrification and too slow decarbonization will translate into more and more lost opportunities for Poland's development. The webinar aims to provide knowledge about the energy transformation in Poland and contribute to building a cross-sectoral consensus on specific reforms and investments that should be reflected in the government's plans.
