National Funding in Poland

One of the national institutions financing energy efficiency is the Environmental Protection and Water Management Fund (EPWMF), which is the main source of financing pro-ecological investments in Poland. Its offer includes both domestic and foreign funds (including EU funds). Funds dedicated to activities related to improving energy efficiency are part of programmes dedicated to protecting the atmosphere, including improving air quality and cross-domain.

The National Fund conducts independent financial management, acting on the basis of the Environmental Protection Act and in accordance with the EU principle "the polluter pays." It derives revenues mainly from fees and penalties for using the environment, exploitation and concession fees, energy sector fees, resulting fees from the Act on the recycling of end-of-life vehicles and from sale of assigned greenhouse gas emission units. The National Fund has a rich financial offer tailored to the expectations of a wide range of beneficiaries: local governments, enterprises, public entities, social organizations and individuals.
