Poland proposes new regulations on waste management and renewables

In response to the current epidemic situation in Poland, the Ministry of Climate proposed new solutions regarding waste management, in particular medical waste, and the energy industry.

“We have prepared a new proposal for waste management regulations that meet the current needs of the industry,” said the Minister of Climate Michał Kurtyka.

The Ministry’s goal is to ensure the safety of all Poles, through provisions that will help both entrepreneurs and local governments. The new draft will apply to all those places where existing installations intended for waste management are not able to process the current medical one, giving them access to more appropriate equipment.

Also, several changes will be introduced in the field of renewable energy sources. The proposal of the Ministry of Climate includes extending the deadlines for investors whose projects have won auctions in previous years. A new regulation has also been proposed for producers using feed-in tariff (FiT) and feed-in premium (FiP) systems, addressed to specific renewables installations using hydropower or biogas.

“We have prepared proposals for regulations that respond to a possible shortage of goods or delays in delivery of components necessary for the implementation and modernisation in the renewable energy sector,” Mr Kurtyka explained.
