The EBRD and the Polish coal sector
Briefing | 15 May 2011
The Polish energy market is dominated by coal, but two thirds of the installed coal capacity is older than 30 years. The EBRD could play a crucial role in the restructuring of this market by providing financial assistance to energy efficiency projects and renewable energy and at the same time refraining from further fossil fuel investments.
Update: The EBRD confirmed during later meetings that it will not finance any coal project in Poland.
More information on the Polish coal projects can be found here.
