Speaking at a debate organized by the Polish Press Agency, Monday, Deputy PM and Economy Minister, Janusz Piechociński said that Poland has an ambition to become a net energy exporter.

The economy minister underlined that the price of energy is a key to competitiveness within the EU. “We see that countries which have their own energy resources and their own potential are weathering the crisis better than countries which rely on energy imports,” he said.

“Not only Germany, but Poland too has the ambition to be an energy provider and exporter based on their own resources,” Piechociński added.

Piechociński spoke about Poland’s policy challenges ahead of the European parliamentary elections in May in relation to the EU’s climate package.

“Poland sends out a strong message that we should not just talk about [CO2] emissions on production, but also emissions from consumption,” Piechociński said.
