The Lower Silesian Institute for Energy Studies, based in Wrocław, is one of the most important Polish Think Tanks dealing with the issues of energy security, gas market liberalization, financial management of energy companies and the issues of efficiency of infrastructure projects in the energy sector. DISE is a Foundation joining a group of experienced experts: economic practitioners, managers from the energy and mining industries, as well as representatives of the world of science. The DISE team prepares analyses, opinions as well as economic, legal, geopolitical and technical expertise in the field of energy and fuel policy for the needs of the government administration, local government, non-governmental organizations and companies from the energy and mining industry. It also provides substantive support for Polish and EU parliamentarians. The Lower Silesian Institute for Energy Studies also conducts scientific, research and educational activities, organizing study visits to the most important facilities in the energy and mining industry in the world.

  • Report 2022


The Lower Silesian Institute of Energy Studies together with the Polish Wind Energy Association prepared a report on the evolution of changes in the energy industry. The gradual shift away from coal to low-carbon power generation, a change in the energy mix, as well as the parallel replacement of coal sources with modern power units are an inevitable prospect for the energy industry in the coming years. At the same time, Poland will not miss global trends, which assume a gradual evolution towards RES and greater use of wind farm power.
The report is an attempt to show in practice that the presence of RES can significantly contribute to the efficient use of coal sources. The assumptions and concepts of cooperation between conventional sources and RES presented in the report are formulated in such a way that the transformation of the energy sector takes place with the greatest benefit for energy consumers.
