Therefore Agora Energiewende asked the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) to develop a set of short, standard and readable reports on the power sectors of Germany’s neighbouring countries, focusing on key features, regulatory frameworks and important political developments. Originally, the country profiles were supposed to serve internal purposes only. But, as we believe this information could be valuable for others as well, we decided to publish it and make it accessible to everyone. This country profile on Poland is the first of a series that will eventually cover roughly twelve countries – including one on Germany. It is certainly not exhaustive. We rather consider it as work in progress that we will be reviewing on a regular basis, checking latest developments, improving the text and adding new aspects. We would thus invite everyone to send us comments and corrections that could be incorporated into the next versions to countryprofile(at)agora-energiewende(dot)de. The document may be downloaded below.
