Abstract

Increasing the share of energy production from renewable sources (RES) plays a key role in the sustainable and more competitive development of the energy sector. Among the renewable energy sources, the greatest increase can be observed in the case of solar and wind power generation. It should be noted that RES are an increasingly important elements of the power systems and that their share in energy production will continue to rise. On the other hand the development of variable generation sources (wind and solar energy) poses a serious challenge for power systems as operators of unconventional power plants are unable to provide information about the forecasted production level and the energy generated in a given period is sometimes higher than the demand for energy in all of the power systems. Therefore, with the development of RES, a considerable amount of the generated energy is wasted. The solution is energy storage, which makes it possible to improve the management of power systems. The objective of this article is to present the concept of electricity storage in the form of the chemical energy of hydrogen (Power to Gas) in order to improve the functioning of the power system in Poland. The expected growth in the installed capacity of wind power plants will result in more periods in which excess energy will be produced. In order to avoid wasting large amounts of energy, the introduction of storage systems is necessary. An analysis of the development of wind power plants demonstrates that the Power to Gas concept can be developed in Poland, as indicated by the estimated installed capacity and the potential amount of energy to be generated. In view of the above, the excess electricity will be available for storage in the form of chemical energy of hydrogen, which

Abstract

Surowce energetyczne są podstawą dla wytwarzania energii w formie ciepła i prądu na Ziemi. Obecne rozwiązania dotyczące konstrukcji bezpiecznych i ekonomicznych reaktorów jądrowych, jak również proces wykorzystania energii z odnawialnych źródeł energii, ponadto przyszłościowe rozwiązania otrzymywania czystej energii z wodoru, ogniw paliwowych i innych źródeł mają decydujący wpływ na zmianę tego tradycyjnego podejścia. Niemniej jednak, kopalne surowce energetyczne (ropa naftowa, gaz ziemny i węgiel) nie mają obecnie substytutów, które sprostałyby wymaganemu zapotrzebowaniu na energię. W artykule omówiono problemy i wyzwania związane z wykorzystaniem kopalnych paliw w energetyce polskiej. Przybliżono stan zasobów (bilansowych i przemysłowych) pierwotnych nośników energii: węgla kamiennego, węgla brunatnego, ropy naftowej, gazu ziemnego i metanu pokładów węgla. Zwrócono szczególną uwagę, że bardzo duże zasoby węgla kamiennego i brunatnego mogą i powinny być wykorzystywane w gospodarce kraju. Przeszkodą dla długoterminowego wykorzystania tych nośników w energetyce jest polityka energetyczno-klimatyczna Unii Europejskiej, która zdecydowanie zmierza do znaczącej redukcji emisji gazów cieplarnianych. Dokonano również omówienia stanu obecnego krajowej energetyki konwencjonalnej, jak również zarysu jej przyszłości. Zwrócono uwagę, że zapewnienie bezpieczeństwa dostaw energii elektrycznej będzie wymagało znacznego wysiłku inwestycyjnego zarówno w sektorze wytwórczym, jak i sieciowym. Artykuł zwieńcza omówienie problemów i wyzwań związanych z funkcjonowaniem krajowego sektora energii. Należy podkreślić, że nadszedł czas na podjęcie przez rząd strategicznych decyzji, dotyczących kształtowania przyszłej struktury paliwowej systemu wytwarzania energii. Polska musi w dalszym ciągu zmierzać w kierunku gospodarki niskoemisyjnej, a rozwój zaawansowanych technologii ograniczających emisję i podniesienie efektywności energetycznej to właściwy kierunek działań.

Abstract

Coal mining is one of the most important sectors of the Polish industry. It can be said that the coal is a national raw material. This results in Poland being a pioneer in the European Union in terms of coal mining as well as its use in the production of electricity and heat. There are many companies in Poland which have been established and developed around the coal mining industry aimed at coal extracting. The operations of those companies depends on the condition of the mining companies and their cooperation with them: commercial, service and advisory, called referred to as “mining supporting companies”. The article focuses on the results of a survey carried out in mining supporting companies, such as mining machinery and equipment manufacturers, mining-related service companies and mining-related research and development institutions. The authors evaluated the relationship and dependence of those companies on the mining industry. It was assumed that the measure of the mining supporting companies condition is the overall quantity of public related payments contributed to the state budget and local budgets. In the article, the authors raised the problem of the size of losses for public finances, as a result of the significant limitations of financial flows from the mining companies. The surveyed companies are those associated with the Polish Mining Chamber of Industry and Commerce. As a result, the authors prepared conclusions regarding the dependence of the mining supporting companies on the situation of the mining subsector.

Abstract

Natural gas plays a significant role in the energy structure of many world economies. Many of them are highly dependent on domestic resources exploitation, other on its deliveries from non-domestic directions. In Poland its importance was relatively low, but in recent years we can observe an increase of interest in this raw material. The aim of the paper is to present the role of natural gas as a primary energy carrier and to determine its impact on the sustainable development and energy security of Poland. The role of gas in the European Union restrictions and development of the domestic economy is also a point. Theoretical deliberations are focused on the most important features of the Polish natural gas market. The article presents the most important national regulations concerning the development of the gas sector in Poland. The amount of natural gas resources are shown as well as indigenous production of the fuel and imports, including the directions from which natural gas is imported. Both political and geographical aspects of the directions of natural gas acquisition are discussed. The level and potential abilities of the diversification of the natural gas supply are discussed. The importance of gas storages in underground gas repositories is underlined. The authors point to the increase in the diversification of raw materials in the structure of electricity, heat production and the transition to pro-ecological fuels.
