Conference on energy crisis and energy security on 17 June in Warsaw

The conference is going to take place in the Polish Parliament (Sejm) on 17 June. The title of my presentation is: “Germany’s Scenario and Prepartion in Case of Global Energy Crisis” (in Polish: “Scenariusz i przygotowania Niemiec na wypadek (globalnego) kryzysu energetycznego”).

It is organized by the Environmental Assiociation EKO-UNIA (Stowarzyszenie Ekologiczne EKO-UNIA), Nationawide Coalition “Development YES – Open-cast Mining NO” (Ogolnopolska Koalicja “Rozwoj TAK – Odkrywki NIE”) and Anna Grodzka, Member of the Polish Parliament from the Green Party.

Description of the conference at the organizers’ website:

Celem konferencji jest przeanalizowanie skali zagrozenia wynikajacego z prognozowanego przez wielu naukowcow zalamania sie globalnego bezpieczenstwa dostaw energii. Wiaze sie to z wyczerpywaniem sie zasobow paliw kopalnych, na jakich oparta jest glownie dotychczasowa gospodarka Polski i wiekszosci krajow. Dennis Meadows, swiatowej slawy naukowiec, autor raportu Klubu Rzymskiego (Granice wzrostu, 1972) ostrzega, ze juz przed rokiem 2020 mozna sie spodziewac wyczerpania strategicznych paliw kopalnych, gospodarczego upadku i rozpoczecia gwaltownej redukcji populacji.

Zasadniczym celem konferencji jest podkreslenie wagi polityki energetycznej kraju dla strategii bezpieczenstwa narodowego, z mysla o terazniejszych i przyszlych pokoleniach.

Panel discussion “Renewable jobs – jobs in renewables: facts and myths” during the congress organized by the Greens/ EFA in Warsaw

ziemiaThe panel discussion “Renewable jobs – jobs in renewables: facts and myths” is going to take place during the participatory debate about Poland and its future “Citizen’s energy for a good climate” organized by the Greens/ European Free Alliance (Greens/ EFA) in the European Parliament from 15 to 16 November in Warsaw.

What is the aim of this panel? As the organizers wrote:

In the midst of the crisis Europe is in need for new innovative sustainable strategies for jobs creation. For the Greens in Europe, investment in renewable energy is clearly one of the solutions to be implemented. There are many good examples across the EU to follow. Together with the public we will be looking at the solutions which could be applied in Poland and how to unleash the potential of green jobs in Poland.

During the panel discussion I am going to present the potential for jobs creation in the renewable energy sector in Poland as well the German experiences in this field. I am going also to discuss the potential for a transfer of these experiences to Poland.

More information about the panel discussion as well as the whole event is available on the website of the Greens/ EFA.
