The World Bank's Board of Executive Directors approved the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Development Policy Loan for Poland. Through this loan, the World Bank is supporting Poland's implementation of critical components of the Energy Policy of Poland.
Until 2030 adopted by the Government in November 2009. The programme's objective is to help decrease energy consumption by 20 per cent by 2020, compared to business as usual, and to increase the share of renewable energy in final energy consumption to 15 per cent by 2020. Meeting these targets will also help Poland to meet its 20 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emission target by 2020. Poland has made commitments with the EU to meet these three major targets. The World Bank's report entitled “Transition to a Low Emission Economy in Poland” helped guide the policy agenda that would enable these targets to be met, while respecting the fiscal constraints currently being faced by Poland.
