Review of funding to energy saving and renewable energy production in Poland in the 2004-2009 funding period. The review was conducted by Scanteam and Proeko and was published in January 2009.

Main findings:

  • The review of the projects dedicated to the energy renovation of 300 public buildings in Poland, concluded that the energy savings are expected to exceed 50% on average. The projects will benefit thousands of school children, patients and staff.
  • The reduction of pollutant emissions has a positive impact on health of the population, but the extent of this cannot be measured in the short term.
  • Energy (use) management is largely absent in the projects. Awareness of its cost efficiency seems to be lacking. An area that also leaves room for improvements is a more even standard of energy audit.
  • The cost of avoided CO2 appears moderate and realistic at a level of EUR 70 per ton on an average.
