Acting for the energy transition.

New analysis!

Anatomy of Dependence:
How to Eliminate Rosatom from Europe?

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 Today, these are mostly outdated and inefficient.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.

Ponad 60% OZE w Polsce do 2030 r. - współpraca Forum Energii i Enercode

Ponad 60% OZE w Polsce do 2030 r.  - współpraca Forum Energii i Enercode
Do tego, aby prowadzić skuteczną transformację energetyczną, potrzebne są nie tylko regulacje, ale także dobre i nowoczesne narzędzia obliczeniowe. Świat zmienia się szybko – wygrywa ten, kto jest w stanie strategicznie planować, ale też reagować na zmiany i minimalizować koszty. Aby umożliwić sprostanie tym wyzwaniom, Forum Energii wraz z Enercode podjęły się zadania zbudowania otwartego modelu energetycznego, który wesprze planowanie modernizacji polskiej energetyki.

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.

Anatomy of Dependence: How to Eliminate Rosatom from Europe

Anatomy of Dependence: How to Eliminate Rosatom from Europe
EU countries depend on cooperation with Russia in the nuclear field. This has resulted in Rosatom not being sanctioned after the Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and trade in this sector is growing. This situation is disadvantageous for the EU and increases its vulnerability to Russian blackmail. Moreover, it strengthens the Russian military. The EU should increase its efforts to diversify supplies and build its own capabilities in the nuclear sector.

The electricity system needs heating sector

The electricity system needs heating sector
The National Power System (NPS) will face new challenges. These include the uninterrupted supply of energy to consumers when the oldest and most emission-intensive generating units are phased out, but also the efficient use of variable RES sources. District heating may be the key to solving NPS problems. In peak demand of the NPS, additional energy can be provided by cogeneration units, in times of surplus energy in the system - it can be absorbed by electric boilers producing cheap heat. The operation of CHP units can also improve the performance of electricity grids.

Past time for gas?

Past time for gas?
Over the past two years, natural gas has become a high-risk fuel: it is subject to huge price fluctuations and, following the disruption of supplies from Russia, competition for imports of this resource from other sources is increasing. Not long ago, there were plans in Poland to significantly increase the consumption of natural gas throughout the economy - by 75% by 2035. It was supposed to be a transition fuel.

Poles voted in October elections with a high turnout, indicating a new balance of power in the Polish parliament. Elections always open a space for new opportunities - to strengthen and direct Poland's energy strategy and to decide on key issues for energy consumers. What are the key challenges in the energy sector that the new government will have to respond to? We will discuss this during the online conference entitled "Energy, climate after the elections. Where to start?"
