Poland received an advance payment of EUR 5 billion
Her greatest successes include preparing an application to the European Commission for an advance payment under the National Reconstruction Program. The green light was given in mid-November 2023. We have received an advance payment of EUR 5 billion, i.e. approximately PLN 22 billion, from the Reconstruction and Resilience Fund.. This is money for the energy transformation and moving away from fossil fuels from Russia. This money is to be spent on energy, including: the development of transmission networks, smart energy grids, renewable energy (implemented by energy communities) and the construction of offshore wind farms.
– The payment of these funds is primarily the result of many months of work and very effective actions of officials of the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy – emphasized Grzegorz Puda, Minister of Funds and Regional Policy.
