Funding leveraged by ESIF in Poland

EU funds from the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020 aimed at improving energy efficiency include the following measures:3

1.2 Promoting energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources in enterprises

1.3. Supporting energy efficiency in buildings (utility buildings and housing sector)

1.5 Effective heat and cold distribution

1.6. Promoting the use of high-efficiency cogeneration of heat and electricity based on the demand for useful heat (heating and cooling networks, sources of high-efficiency cogeneration)

Financing for energy efficiency is also provided by the Regional Operational Programme of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship 2014-2020. It has dedicated to such investments the priority axis 3 Low-emission economy and especially the sub-axes of 3.2 Energy efficiency in SMEs and 3.3 Energy efficiency in public buildings and the housing sector.

The Mazovia local government with support of MAE has been operating regional financing programme to support the modernisation of energy generation installations in order to improve Energy Efficiency in the Mazovia Region (RPO WM EE, activity 4.2).

Total value of the EUR allocated for the period of 2014 – 2020 amounts for 104 541 043 EUR, in PLN it amounts for 452 002 106. Total value of projects to be realised amounts for 618 652 325 PLN.

In 2019 the value of works performed amounts for 91,51%, so it is highly probable the works will be completed.

Results confirmed so far:

  • Additional capacity to generate energy from renewable sources - 3.89 MW

  • Number of energy-modernized buildings – 151

  • Annual primary energy consumption reduction in public buildings - 32 094 032,66 kWh / year

Mazovia Energy Agency managed the JESSICA Programme till 2018 in cooperation with the Polish BGK bank. FROM managed PPP modernisation programmes financed by the low cost revolving investment programme Jessica. Five programmes were selected with an investment value of 13.4 mln PLN and completed successfully. Administration costs of the programme amounted to 352.122,16 PLN.
