Focus and goals of Efficient Poland Initiative
Efficient Poland Initiative focuses on two very important and very current issues for Poland:
Thermal refurbishment of single family houses
Polish government has ignored the needs of half of the society, focusing on supporting public and multi-family buildings. It is worth to change the approach towards single family buidlings – in single family houses live less wealthy half of Poles which is willing to undergo a refurbishment of their houses. They should be helped to do this appropriately.
Let’s change the polish scenery/landscape – let’s help the citizens from countryside and small towns.
Air quality in Poland
Horrible state of air in Poland is the result of lack of determination by the State to act against harmful emissions from boilers fired with waste, poor quality fuel (in most cases coal). Waste and coal of low quality is burned in old boilers installed in energy consuming single-family houses. To solve this problem changes in law are necessary as well as local initiatives like the support programs by the Małopolska voivodeship/province.
Polluted air is not only a problem of cities like Kraków – hundreds of cities and towns face this issue and try turn a blind eye to this issue which might be successfully dealt with.
