Area: 18,219 km2
Population: 2 751 534
In urbanareas: 1 662 937
Capital city: Łódź
the world's largest power plant generating electricity frombrowncoal,
the best insolationin Poland,
perfect conditions for development of energy based on biomass and biogas,
share of RESin the regionalenergybalance: 0.2%
Cluster Bioenergy for the Region is an open collaborative initiative, gathering:
16 universities and scientific research institutes,
6 units of local government,
7 business supportinstitutions, activein the field of RES.
Bioenergy for the Region Cluster aims to achieve its purposes through: complex solution of issues concerning the regulation of the biomass market in Central Poland, in particular the methods of collection, processing and use of biomassas a RES; integration of members of the Cluster - businesses, researchers and local authorities in order to increase the share of solar and wind energy in the energy balance of the Region; educational and information activities, promoting the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Despiteexcellentnaturalconditions for the development of renewableenergy, currently the share of RES in the energyregionalbalanceisonly 0.2%. Thissituationwillchangesoonthanks to the EU funds….. Investments in renewable energy in the Lodz region financed by the EU funds (2007-2013 financialperspective)
The budget earmarked for investmentsin renewable energy sources in Lodz Region is the largest among all 16 Regional Operational Programmes in Poland. Regionalcall for proposalstargeting RES investmentsendedin June 2010. 87 applications weresubmitted. The amount requested by the applicants excessed400% of the fundsavailable.
