The EU-funded SuPREME project will help to promote a conversion to renewable energy systems and resources in Poland by twinning one of the country's best energy research centre with more advanced EU centres of excellence in the field.

Poland’s economic progress has come at some environmental cost – its history in electricity production resulted in it registering the highest rate of coal production of any EU country in 2009. Poland is Europe’s third largest polluter and is home to 30 of Europe’s most damaging power plants.

However, Poland’s demand for electricity is also twice the EU average. This means that energy must continue to be generated in similar quantities, albeit in a considerably more sustainable manner. Renewable energy systems (RES) are a logical solution, but unlike traditional power facilities, RES can lead to unpredictable and variable outputs depending on the weather and other seasonal and geographical factors.
