According to the data of the Energy Market Agency analyzed by the WysokieNapię portal, electricity production in Poland in 2017 amounted to 170.1 TWh. Less than half of this was provided by hard coal power plants, another 30% by brown coal, the share of renewable energy exceeded 14%, and gas power plants reached nearly 6.%. This means that in 2017, electricity production in Polish power plants was the highest in history, at the same time coal was at its lowest level since year 1918. Experts predict a further increase in the demand for electricity. The Polish government declares that the share of coal in the national energy mix will continue to decline.
