Conference | Clean heat 2030 | Strategy for heating
There is no longer any need to convince anyone in Poland that improving air quality is a priority and a major challenge. Smog destroys health, generates costs, affects the quality of life and devastates the image of Poland in the world. How to ensure that air quality starts to improve, and society is willing to accept change? On the April 17, 2019 during the conference in Warsaw, Forum Energii, together with partners, presented the concept of the heat supply transformation until 2030.

For the last 8 months Forum Energii together with the National Energy Conservation Agency and the Institute for Structural Research have been working on a strategy for the elimination of air pollution from heating. Smog destroys health, generates costs, deteriorates the quality of life and devastates the image of Poland in the world.
During the conference we discussed the results of analyses of the benefits and costs of improving air quality in Poland. We have shown how we can reduce smog health costs while modernising our district heating systems. How to solve the problem of households heated individually with low quality fuels?
During the conference we attempted to combine our perspective on the development of the sector with the government's priorities for heating and European strategies. We also invited a representative from the European Commission to participate. We want to put the technological and environmental aspects of the strategy in a social context and jointly consider how to convince the public to make the necessary changes to the heating system.
The conference was attended by about 130 participants representing public administration (central and local government), business, NGOs and the media. Full record of the conference is available online on the Forum Energii youtube channel.
