Emphasizing the Importance of Hard Coal in Electricity Generation in Poland

June 28, 2021 Engineering 0

The Polish energy sector is facing a number of challenges, including the reconstruction of production capacity, the diversification of energy sources, environmental concerns, adequate fuel supplies, and others. The mandatory implementation of Europe 2020 strategy in terms of “3×20” targets (20% reduction of greenhouse gases, 20% energy from renewable sources, and 20% increase in energy production efficiency) necessitates quick decisions that must be coordinated with energetic safety issues, increasing demand for electric energy, and other factors. Because nearly 80% of Poland’s power is generated by coal-fired power plants, and energy from hard coals is relatively less expensive, Most renewable energy-related plants are unable to generate enough power to compete with coal-fired power plants and are prohibitively expensive, resulting in high electricity prices. Alternatively, a new generation of coal-fired power plants can significantly increase efficiency, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and generate less expensive electric power in sufficient quantities to meet a country’s needs. Electric energy production costs will be influenced by the purchase of emission allowances and the implementation of carbon dioxide capture and storage systems; however, increased electric energy prices may be offset, at least partially, by improved efficiency.
