Sustainable Energy Action Plan

Spurred by joining the Covenant of Mayors in 2009 and publishing its “Sustainable Energy Action Plan for Warsaw in the perspective of 2020” in 2011, Warsaw started to diversify the fuel sources of its district heating system to include low-carbon sources, retrofit and modernize the system, and support electricity and heat consumption reduction (e.g. by installing individual household meters, refurbishing buildings and creating innovative privatepublic partnerships). It plans to supply about 50% of the heat from gas, biomass and waste-to-heat sources.
