Energy Efficiency in Poland. 2012 Review
MetadataShow full item record
Is Poland preparing itself for this revolution? Will it be possible to mobilise Polish society so that it supports these inevitable changes and actively participates in them? This review makes an attempt at answering these and other questions. We have conducted research to get a picture of the current state of social awareness in the area of energy efficiency, analysed expectations towards local authorities and their exemplary role and verified whether any conclusions can be drawn from aggregated data collected during the preparation of energy performance certificates. All this forms an interesting picture – despite INTRODUCTION MAREK ZABOROWSKI Introduction | 3 the declarations of various politicians, little is happening in the Polish energy efficiency sector. However, changes enforced by EU legislation are becoming more and more visible in the construction sector. The review also includes several articles focusing on selected issues. Janusz Mazur, the President of the Energy Saving Company ESCO, evaluates the development of the ESCO market. Jan Rączka, the former President of the Board of the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management, shares his reflections upon result indicators – the Fund has made an effort to measure the effects of its programmes. Arkadiusz Węglarz talks about the necessity of changes in energy planning. We have devoted special attention to the measures taken by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management, as in the last several years this institution has been particularly involved in energy efficiency improvement in Poland. We hope that the review proves to be an important publication, especially in the context of the new financial perspective, bearing in mind that the European Commission attaches considerable significance to energy efficiency issues.
