Clean Air Programme
The Clean Air Programme aims at improving air quality and energy efficiency in Poland and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. A budget of 103 billion PLN has been provided to the plan. For individual heating, the policy aims at phasing out coal in cities by 2030. It also plans to increase the amount of zero emission houses to 3 million with new low emissions heating sources and low-emission public buildings by 2030.
The plan has three components:
1) Clean Air: Grants to switch to more energy efficient and sustainable heat sources. It aims to increasing the amount of zero emission houses to 3 million with new ecological heating sources by 2030 and low-emission public buildings by 2030.
2) Stop Smog: support granted to municipalities wanting to switch to more environmentally-friendly sources of heating, or willing to improve energy efficiency in single-family residential buildings. It can cover up to 70% of the costs.
3) Thermomodernisation relief: Relief of up to PLN 53,000 per taxpayer, depending on the thermo-modernisation works done. The government also wants to achieve zero-emission transport (in cities with more than 100 thousand citizens; from 2025, only zero emission newly bought vehicles in public transport, and as of 2030, all vehicles in public transport would be emission-free).
