Although there should not be serious problems for the European Union to meet greenhouse gas emission limits by 2020, further CO2 reductions could be a real challenge to numerous Member States. This concerns especially countries highly dependent on coal, such as Poland, where nearly 90% of its electricity is generated by coal combustion. Hence, clean coal technologies (CCT) most likely will be used to a much greater extent in these states than others to impede climate change and enhance economic competitiveness. Poland thus has the proper incentive and capacity to become a leader in CCT development, which could support the building of an innovative economy and boost Polish exports.
