Coal should account for 60 percent of the energy mix in Poland by 2030, according to the draft of Poland’s energy policy until 2040. The decrease of coal share to below 30 percent is expected by 2040. According to the plan, in 2033 the first nuclear power plant will be built, and then a new nuclear unit will be established every two years. In total, six units with a capacity of 6-9 GW should be built.

The project also assumes a 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to 1990 level. In addition, by 2030 Poland set a target to improve energy efficiency by 23 percent compared to forecasts from 2007.
