Poland Plans to Cut Subsidy for Renewables as Deficit Grows

Poland plans to cut renewable-energy subsidies after an economic slump boosted the budget deficit, the deputy economy minister said.

Jerzy Pietrewicz, who was named to his post in February, said he’s updating proposals set out in a renewable-energy draft law in October. They’ll be combined with a “more balanced economic approach” to energy, emphasizing wind and biomass plants while keeping a lid on solar photovoltaic, he said.
