Poland's Energy Mix and Energy Security of the Country

Title variants
Languages of publication
The article presents the basic factors determining the level of Poland's energy security. The energy mix of our country was analysed, as well as energy security indicators for energy carriers used in Poland. The indicators used allow to determine the level of security, but also indicate whether Poland is pursuing the objectives of the country's energy policy. Indicators such as the Stirling Index, Herfindahl-Hirschman index, import dependency ratio, energy self-sufficiency and the index of the share of renewable energy in the national balance sheet were used. The results of the analysis were presented and the modifications should be indicated in order to be able to implement the provisions of the energy policy until 2030.
