Revenues from the production, distribution and trade of electricity stood at PLN 154.1bn in 2019 (latest available data), recording an increase of 15.4% y/y and corresponding to 6.7% of Poland’s GDP. In 2020, gross electric energy generation stood at 157.8 TWh and declined by 3.7% y/y, shrinking for a third consecutive year. Domestic consumption of electricity also recorded a decrease, of 2% y/y, to 171 TWh. Due to the gap between domestic consumption and production, Poland had to rely on electricity imports for a fifth year in a row: the negative trade balance grew by 24.9% y/y to 13.3 TWh of net imports. The sector has witnessed a slow but steady restructuring process, aimed at diversifying energy sources away from coal. This has prompted the development of new renewable energy-based capacity in the country. Nevertheless, Poland’s electricity continues to come mainly from coal- and lignite-fired units, which accounted for almost 70% of power generation in 2020.
