Poland and its coal (part 2) : the challenges and progress of the energetic transition

    Today, 70.2% of Poland's primary energy production comes from its coal[1]. This includes the burning of the ore by thermal power stations or directly by households. The country is therefore heavily dependent on this energy. This dependence on "the dirtiest of fossil fuels"[2] is creating major environmental and…
