Assessment of options for replacement of the Bełchatów Lignite Power Plant

Tightening global and European CO2-reduction targets require the decommissioning of lignite-fired power plants, which raises issues regarding how to feasibly replace energy capacity.

Bełchatów Lignite Power Plant in Poland concentrates almost 21% of domestic power generation at one site, and is a major CO2 emitter. The power system effects of the plant’s retirement combined with socio-economic considerations have prompted ClientEarth to commission this report, researched and written by experts at Enervis.
