Poland to accelerate coal phase-out as it works on industry restructuring

Poland plans to phase out coal faster than it had initially planned and now expects the share of coal in its power production to reduce to 11 per cent-28 per cent in 2040 from almost 80 per cent currently.

Poland has been the only European Union state to refuse to pledge climate neutrality by 2050, stating that it needs more time and money to shift its economy from coal to cleaner energy sources. In its latest version of Poland’s energy strategy by 2040, the climate ministry asserted that the share of coal will fall to 37 per cent-56 per cent in 2030 and to 11 per cent-28 per cent in 2040, depending on the carbon emission costs.
