The Polish market for renewable energies has reached a turning point. The new Polish
Act on Renewable Energy Sources entails new opportunities for developing biomass power
plant projects including locations of the wood or furniture industry.

At present, mono-incinerators at such locations produce less than five per cent of the
Polish electricity from biomass. Most potentially favourable locations have not yet been

Instead, almost 80 per cent of the biomass electricity and more than a third of the
renewable energies in Poland are generated through co-incinerating biomass in coal power

The new Polish Act on Renewable Energy Sources is scheduled to come into effect in the
second half of 2013. According to this law, the support of co-incinerators should decrease
significantly in the future.

By contrast, smaller biomass power plants, mono-incinerators and electricity
generation by using combined hear and power (CHP) technology should receive stronger
support. At the same time, the goals in terms of developing and boosting renewable
energies are once again increasing.

In light of this development, experts have jointly analysed the market for electricity
generation from solid biomass in detail. The report focuses on the identification of
industrial locations that produce large amounts of biomass.

The analyst version of the report Site Potentials for Biomass Power Plants
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/p4cn9v/site_potentials ] in Poland includes:

– A detailed analysis of the current and future legislation for promoting renewable
energies and electricity generation from solid biomass in Poland.

– An evaluation of the biomass streams that are currently being used as fuel in
biomass power plants, including their amounts and sources.
