PGE Group operates in an exceptionally complex and variable regulatory environment. On-going monitoring of legislative processes and active participation in dialogue with groups responsible for law-making are an essential element for conducting effective economic activity and fulfilling our stakeholders' expectations.
This activity directly translates into building the Group's value.
We are the power-market leader in Poland. We provide energy security. Our employees have knowledge and skills to present arguments related to the practical aspects of generation, distribution and supply of electricity and heat. Thus we are a natural partner for discussions with lawmakers as well as central and local administration. PGE's position also means social responsibility - looking from the viewpoint of the obligation to ensure the security of the entire power system which then ensure the security of uninterrupted energy supplies to our clients.
How do we operate?
We emphasise a wide and open discussion about the future of the Polish power industry. This is why we strive to increase public awareness of the problems and challenges facing the power industry among decision makers and the general public. We organise and co-organise conferences and workshops related to the sector's current situation and problems:
- shape and direction of EU climate and energy policies, including industrial emission standards and limits,
- capacity market,
- plans to modernise the power sector in Poland,
- model of competitive power market,
- renewable energy sources,
- water law,
- waste management,
- taxation of business activity, in particular in the area of electricity and heat
We are promoting PGE Group's vision, strategy and positions on issues that are of importance to state security and the stable development of Polish economy. Our experts analyse the consequences of regulatory and political decisions in the energy area. We share our observations and analyses within existing frameworks for dialogue with the administration and lawmakers. We are actively participating in parliamentary committee and sub-committee sessions where we try to bring attention to issues of significance to PGE Group and the entire power industry.
PGE is a member of a number of power-industry organisations, which is another channel through which we present our opinions. This ensures that positions are balanced and take into account the viewpoints of all organisation members. Group companies are members of organisations such as:
- Polish Electricity Association
- Polish Power Plant Association
- Polish Power Transmission and Distribution Association
- Energy Trading Association
- Energy and Environmental Protection Economic Chamber
- Association of Polish Electricians
- Polish Wind Energy Association
- Polish Industrial CHP Plant Association
We also participate in the works of business organisations, including Employers of Poland, which allows us to participate in influential processes related to energy and in training. As a member of the Energy Employers Association, we have the opportunity to nominate employer representatives to the Tripartite Commission for the Energy Industry, and to participate in all initiatives aimed at shaping and developing government programmes.
