EC approved support system for cogeneration in Poland

The European Commission has approved a support program for high-efficiency cogeneration in Poland worth €5 billion and a plan to reduce charges for energy-intensive customers.
“The Polish support scheme approved today will provide an important contribution to EU environmental and climate goals without unduly distorting competition. We have also approved Polish plans to preserve the competitiveness of energy-intensive companies in Poland by reducing their contributions to the financing of the electricity cogeneration support,” Margrethe Vestager, EU Competition Commissioner, said.

As she added, the EC must, however, analyze whether the planned concessions for some energy-consuming customers are in line with EU state aid rules.
The support program will have an annual budget of €500 million and will remain in force until December 31, 2028.
