Challenges for renewables producers in 2023: Amendments to energy market rules
energy, ESG & sustainability
The end of last year abounded in new regulations in Poland governing the electricity market. There was also a lot of talk about the need to amend questionable regulations. But the changes are so numerous it is hard to predict their ultimate impact on the market and specific market participants. This is particularly evident in the case of generators of power from renewable energy sources benefiting from the auction support system.

On the Polish energy market, the recent months will be remembered for many reasons. Historically high electricity and natural gas prices have forced changes to a number of established practices. During the crisis, several mechanisms have been created to mitigate its effects—primarily high utility prices. Among other things, a cap on the price of electricity sold to selected end users is being introduced.

But when these producers participate in the RES auction support system, their situation becomes more complicated than it might seem at first glance.
Official procedures for limiting natural gas consumption

In the context of ensuring security of gas supply to end-users, we point to the potential for introduction of restrictions on natural gas consumption.
