Poland is a very energy intensive country. It consumes roughly 150 kg of oil equivalent for every 1000 euros earned, above the EU average. Although Poland has reduced much of its energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions since the end of the communist era, it still uses a lot of energy produced by burning coal, oil and gas. Transforming itself into a low-emission economy is not an easy task for such a big economy as this and one dependent on fossil fuels, which are still mined within the country.
