Prime Minister: We are expanding our thermal modernisation programme to include "large-panel" buildings

The government adopted a draft amendment to the Act, according to which the Thermal Modernisation and Refubrishment Fund will enable co-financing of activities related to the improvement of the safe use of "large-panel" buildings. As Mateusz Morawiecki indicated, there are about 12 million people living in such houses.

The project is also aimed at supporting local governments in activities related to improving the technical condition of council multi-family buildings. It is estimated that by 2029, the project will involve about 8 thousand such buildings. Owners and administrators will be able to claim reimbursement in the amount of 50%, and in some cases up to 60% of the total costs of thermal modernisation. "This is a solution that will significantly reduce heating costs and improve air quality" - said the head of the government.

The project will also increase the thermal modernisation bonus in the event of simultaneous implementation of the thermal modernisation investment and the assembly of renewable energy installations (including photovoltaics and wind turbines). This bonus will be increased from 16% to 21% of the thermal modernisation project value.

It is estimated that in 2020-2029 the cost of the proposed solutions will amount to approximately PLN 2.2 billion, of which about 70% will go to commune self-governments.
