As member of the European Union, Poland has committed to the reduction of CO2 emissions, the increase of energy efficiency and an increase of the share of energy generated from renewable sources by the year 2020, a difficult challenge for a member state traditionally relying on energy generation from out-dated coal-fired power plants. Poland must implement a comprehensive strategy to gradually diversify and modernize the energy sector, while meeting the growing energy demand and maintaining stable supply. The thesis aims to identify the challenges and opportunities for the development of a future-proof energy sector, which further complies with the commitments agreed upon within the framework of the EU 20-20-20 goals. It will look at the characteristics of the current coal based network and assess the potential to diversify the national energy mix by inclusion of renewable energy alternatives.
