Poland's strikingly low share of renewable energy sources in the domestic power consumption - reported at 11.3% at end-2016 by the stats office GUS - is mostly due to the erroneous promotion of the joint biomass and coal combustion technology, think-tank WiseEuropa's expert Aleksander Sniegocki comments for the daily Rzeczpospolita. The situation was also aggravated by the low output of wind farms, caused by adverse weather conditions, head of the Polish Economic Chamber of Renewable and Distributed Energy (PIGEOR) Beata Wiszniewska observes.
The share of renewable energy in the domestic market may decrease some more, to ca. 11% at end-2017, head of the Institute for Renewable Energy Grzegorz Wisniewski expects.
The outlook is even bleaker for 2020, with a 3.3% miss on the 15% target, he adds. The European Commission might want to take a closer look on Poland's usage of EU climate policy funds, which, in turn, may result in penalties and further financial burdens for Poland, Wisniewski warns.
