ETS2 in Poland later?  K.  Pełczyńska-Nałęcz: This might make sense

Katarzyna Pełczyńska-Nałęcz considers that postponing the date on which additional changes to the CO2 emissions fee will come into force is justified. According to the head of the Ministry of Finance, this will allow Poland to implement investments related to the KPO and more. And also because coal mining is not profitable at all.

ETS2 is a type of charge for the emission of greenhouse gases and dust that are harmful to human health and the planet. The Minister of Finance and Regional Policy in an interview with PAP actually added that There is an ETS1 fee collected from heating, power and industrial plants And other pollutant emitters, and an additional fee for the transportation and construction sectors is scheduled to come into effect starting in 2027.

If someone is using central heating or has a heat pump, the ETS1 will already be included. However, if he has a gas boiler or coal stove, his heating bills will increase when the ETS2 system comes into force – explained the head of the FiPR Ministry.

This is the right direction for change, “because the goal is to transform the energy industry into a modern, competitive, clean and healthy industry,” Pełczyńska-Nałęcz explains. However, he admits it 2027 is an unrealistic date for Poland.

The head of the Ministry of Finance asserts that the previous government unnecessarily approved the next step in changes in the EU with such a quick deadline. – Consumer and citizen preparations for these tariffs have been very slowEven if only because of blocking Funds from KPO There were no necessary investments – Pełczyńska-Nałęcz explains. He also adds that coal mining is very expensive today.

– The Polish state contributed PLN 7 billion in 2023 Coal extraction. It is worth understanding that this is the most expensive option, says Pełczyńska-Nałęcz.

The European Emissions Trading System (ETS) has been operating since 2005. According to European Commission data, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in society in 2023 By approximately 47 percent under 18 previously, this is due, among other things, to the European Court of Justice. Under this system, companies must purchase carbon dioxide emission allowances, taking into account environmental costs. The limits are decreasing every year, which is intended to encourage a shift towards lower emissions and lead to the achievement of EU climate targets.

Each member state has a certain set of rights subject to trade rules. The Ministry of Climate and Environment announced In the years 2013-2023, PLN 51 billion were transferred to the state budget. This is money that should be spent on the green transition.
