Conference | Clean heat as a driving factor of Polish economy



Modernisation of the individual heating and district heating sectors is inevitable and is largely economic in nature - outdated infrastructure, dependence on fuel imports, environmental and health costs of air pollution. The scale of investment needed is huge, but it can be made to give a boost to national economic policy and industry, helping to increase GDP, attract high-tech elements of the supply chain or create attractive jobs in post-coal regions. Which technologies should we focus on? Which directions of support should have priority? We invite you to participate in the conference online - the event is free and no registration is required. The conference is held in Polish only.
