It is also a clear signal for the financial and energy sector that further investment in coal has no future and is deeply unethical, and projects such as Ostrołęka C should be immediately abandoned and replaced with investments in clean renewable energy.

The inconsistency of the Minister's statement raises the question whether the government has any climate and energy policy.

Capacity market will not help coal - new power plants are like castles built on sand

There is an ongoing debate on the rationality of building new power plants in the face of the global end of coal. The recently published two articles show that the capacity market will not help coal and that most of the new power plants planned in Europe have not been created at all.
