On 13 July 2012 the Commission issued a decision on Poland's plans to allocate over 404 million transitional free allowances to the power sector (the Decision.)
This pool of allowances is worth approximately €7.1 billion and will be released to operators in the power sector between 2013 and 2019 by way of derogation from the principle of full power sector auctioning in the next phase of the ETS. This document offers an analysis of the Commission's decision and sets out the next steps that should be taken at national and EU level.
Poland’s final application, including additional supporting information and any modifications to the plans, has not yet been published and the conclusions in this document are based on the draft plan published by Poland in August 2011.2
The second document details the investemnts proposed by Poland for inclusion in its national investment plan, which were excluded by the Commission. This list is provisional, based on analysis of publicly available documents to determine which investments are listed in Commission decision annex 3 – the list of rejected plants.
