In the Republic of Poland, electricity from renewable sources is promoted through tenders for the definition of the of support level of a feed-in tariff or premium, tax relief and subsidy and loan schemes. Heat generated from renewable energy sources is supported through three subsidy schemes and a loan scheme. Renewable energy in transport is promoted through a biofuels quota obligation.

Access of electricity from renewable energy sources to the grid shall be granted with priority. Furthermore, grid operators must give electricity from renewable sources priority of transmission. Plant operators are not entitled to the development of the grid.

In Poland, there is only one policy programme related to renewable energy plants: certification of installers of RES installations.
