The Clean Air programme [Poland]

This programme is a nation-wide public grant scheme to support building renovations and replacements of heat sources. This helps people upgrade their properties, install more user-friendly, cleaner heating systems while also cutting energy bills. 

Recommendations

  • Fossil fuels should be excluded from the programme’s scope as a matter of urgency. Coal should not be eligible for support.
  • The programme needs to be embedded in a stable financing mechanism and it’s funding structure should be clarified.
  • The programme should have interim targets.
  • In addition to the goal of improving air quality, the programme should have goals to improve energy efficiency and cut energy consumption in the residential sector.
  • The programme’s scope should be extended or a similar scheme should be introduced to also cover multi-apartment buildings.
