We are a European and interdisciplinary
think tank from Poland.

We created Forum Energii to provide reliable knowledge and support the energy transition. 

We initiate dialogue, propose proven solutions based on knowledge and reliable data, and look after our country's and Europe's energy security. We inspire action for a fair, secure and effective energy transition. We carry out our mission through analysis, opinion and dialogue. We propose changes that are socially and economically justified.

Our vision is a climate-neutral world where energy is zero-carbon based and accessible to everyone.

Our Programmes

Power

We identify the most important challenges facing the power sector in Poland and globally. We analyse how to safely and cost-effectively change the generation mix and how to plan the energy transition process to use renewable sources and other zero-carbon technologies. We describe the technical and economic feasibility of the energy transition in an accessible way.

Renewables

We explore opportunities for the development of renewable energy sources. We look for the best solutions to increase the share of clean energy in the economy and improve energy security. We focus on integrating clean technologies into the electricity system with consideration of costs, technical capabilities and the need to electrify other sectors of the economy.

Heating

The heating sector in Poland comprises hundreds of district heating systems and millions of individual heating appliances. Today, these are mostly outdated and inefficient. In the programme, we are looking for optimal solutions- those that will ensure access to heat and at the same time lead to climate neutrality and improved air quality in Poland.

Cities

Cities -  is a programme that supports local governments and city dwellers in diagnosing the challenges they face in moving towards climate neutrality. Together, we prepare solutions for clean air, energy security and the prevention of fuel poverty. 

Part of the Cities programme is 'LeadAir' - an education and advisory project for local governments.

Energy Transition Financing

The energy transition is a very expensive process. It therefore requires very thoughtful measures and rational investment financing. In this programme, we suggest how to spend available funds wisely and for the right purposes.

International
Programme

The energy transition has an international dimension - on several levels, although the starting point and specifics of each country are different. We operate in a world full of dependencies. In the International Program, we create and propose solutions that enhance energy security, support technology development, digitalization and knowledge sharing.

Planning Poland’s Climate and Energy strategies in a new political opening

Planning Poland’s Climate and Energy strategies in a new political opening
Poland’s new coalition government has declared a new opening in energy policy and offers much more ambitious transition goals, although the details of which are yet to be worked out. One of the first tasks of the new government is to propose a series of climate and energy strategies. Polarised opinions, attempts at disinformation, and political tension will make creating these guiding documents quite difficult. The preparation of the country's new energy and climate policy should be underpinned by sound analyses to justify the choices made. A council composed of the country's leading experts should be established to be a substantive voice in the process.

How to ‘uncoal’ Poland

How to ‘uncoal’ Poland
koparka węgla, maszyna kopiąca węgiel
The new government has a long list of decisions to make. Neglected power plant repairs, the poor condition of distribution networks, an unfinished project to spin off coal assets, and a declining mining industry. On top of that, there is downward pressure on electricity prices. Each of these areas requires immediate decisions and large amounts of money.

The Energy and Climate Roadmap. Ukraine towards the EU

Ukraine flag; EU flag, EU and Ukraine flag
The European Council decided on December 14 to open accession negotiations with Ukraine. In the coming months and years, Ukraine will have to do the arduous, technical work of implementing EU regulations. This includes the energy sector. In the roadmap prepared by the Green Deal Ukraïna project, in which Forum Energii is a partner, we identify the most urgent areas of energy and climate reform for Ukraine and take a closer look at the accession negotiations.

Beyond 60% RES in Poland by 2030 - cooperation between Forum Energii and Enercode

Beyond 60% RES in Poland by 2030 - cooperation between Forum Energii and Enercode
To lead an effective energy transition, you need not only regulations, but also good, modern computing tools. The world is changing rapidly - the winner will be the one who is able to plan strategically, but also react to changes and minimize costs. In order to meet these challenges, the Energy Forum, together with Enercode, has taken on the task of building an open energy model that will support the planning of the modernization of the Polish energy sector, taking into account the acceleration of the development of renewable energy sources.

How to escape the household energy price trap?

How to escape the household energy price trap?
Household electricity prices in recent months bore little relation to real production costs, were kept artificially low and treated as an interface with voters. State intervention in this area was necessary in 2022 due to unprecedented price increases on the markets. If the price-freezing mechanisms expire as planned at the end of 2023, electricity prices for households could rise by up to 68% in January. The impact of price spikes should be mitigated. We are proposing a package of solutions: an energy voucher, support for distribution tariffs, additional money for improving the energy efficiency of buildings and a special tariff for heating buildings with electricity.
