"Firstly, the priority is the security of the national power system KSE," Lukaszewska-Trzeciakowska said. "Processes of investments in KSE conducted by [grid operator] PSE should take place and should accelerate."
Needs are tied to the necessity of accommodating offshore wind farms, large nuclear power plants and SMRs, she noted. Also, the fast development of renewable sources necessitates investments to ensure stability of the system.
Grid investments will need support as there are problems with supply chains and with contractors, she noted. To that end, Poland should as soon as possible pass a bill on facilitating investments in the power grid and distribution networks, the official said.
Lukaszewska-Trzeciakowska was appointed to the post of the government point person for energy security on June 2. Earlier, she was a deputy Climate Minister.
