Poland plans to merge its PGE, Enea and Tauron power groups into two groups, with one engaged in coal operation while the other in non-coal business, said Jacek Sasin, deputy prime minister of Poland.
The plan is a part of coal and energy reform of this coal-reliant country. Poland sees most of its power generation from coal burning, and it is the only member country of EU refusing to promise carbon neutrality by 2050.
The Law and Justice (PiS), Poland's ruling party, came into power in 2015 partly because of its promise to support coal industry. But it has shut down some mines and encouraged investment in solar industry.
The ever-changing climate policies require Polish government to reassess its energy policies. The power generators in Poland would be on track to wean off coal by 2050 or 2060, he added.
