The European Union’s ambitious plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent by 2020 poses a financial and technological threat to the Polish power sector, Janisław Muszyński, president of the Lower Silesia Foundation for Regional Development, said while summing up a Polish-German Energy Forum in Ostritz, Germany, June 15-16.

The forum brought together several dozen professionals with an interest in issues such as power grid integration, gas network development, biogas, the future of lignite, and energy efficiency.

The event was held under the auspices of Peter Nothnagel, the economy minister of the German region of Saxony, and Germans constituted a large group of participants. Saxony has been spending vast amounts of money on projects to expand power units and technology aiming to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Forum participants agreed that investment projects related to meeting the EU target for cutting greenhouse gas emissions are a major technological and financial challenge for the power sector.
