Get answers to your questions about conventional energy construction in Poland…
Due to advancements in conventional energy production and changes in funding sources, professionals engaged in this segment are asking:
- What is the overall value (PLN bn) and size (MW) of conventional energy construction investments planned and underway in Poland?
- What portion of these investments will reach completion?
- What are the investment values and construction output quantities associated with each of the main fuel options – coal, natural gas, lignite and nuclear?
- Which locations across Poland will benefit from the largest investments in conventional energy construction?
- What is the status of the regulatory environment with regard to this market? Which specific regulations will have significant impact on market development?
Did you know...
- In the Polish transmission system, over 30 years has 80% of the 220 kV line, 23% of the 400 kV line and 38% of transformers.
- The modernization of the network, over 30 years old and in need of replacements would require about PLN 55bn.
- In 2013, the investment outlays on the distribution network significantly exceeded PLN 6bn.
- There are nine significant investments currently under construction, with net worth of over PLN 19bn, of which half the value is accounted for by an investment group PGE in Opole.
- The planned capacity of the first nuclear power plant in Poland is about 3,000 MW.
- By 2025, PSE will have invested about PLN 23bn. About 40% of the spending will be due to the connections and power evacuation from new sources.
- Over the past six months the value of investments in the tender stage decreased by PLN 5bn, which results from both the suspension of certain investments, and in some cases moving on to the construction phase.

Extract from this report
- By the end of 2015 distribution enterprises will have made investments with a total value of close to PLN 27bn. This will be related not only to the modernisation of the existing networks or constructing new ones, but also the connection of new sources and customers, as well as wider investments improving the system, such as surveillance or remote control.
- Projects in the tender stage account for a further PLN 32.1bn, including the still uncertain Elektrownia Polnoc, estimated at PLN 12bn. Over the past six months the value of investments in the tender stage decreased by PLN 5bn, which is due to both putting some investments on hold, and some of them moving on to the construction stage.
Market commentary by expert
The dynamically changing situation on the market of conventional energy production results in high turnover of investments – some go into standby, while other, already forgotten, return to the tender mode. On the whole, the value of active investment has decreased, although they are still worth more than PLN 100bn. Importantly, due to a new investment in Opole the value of investments in the construction stage has increased to over PLN 19bn, and the advancement of many tenders indicates that the pool of contracted investments is likely to increase soon.
