Final energy share by energy carrier

The Mazovia Region is the largest and most populated of the sixteen Polish provinces. It spreads out over the Mazovian Lowland, through which the Vistula river and its tributaries Narew and Bug flow. Forests cover one-fifth of the region.
It occupies 35 579 km2 of central-east Poland (11.4 % of Poland's surface area) and has a population of 5.29 million (13.1 % of the population of Poland), of whom 64 % live in cities.

The Mazovia Region is one of the most dynamic in Poland and in Central-Eastern Europe. It is a crossroad of communication and trade, and a financial centre connecting the East and West of Europe. Warsaw, Poland's capital and largest city, is located in Mazovia. Its population is around 1.8 Mio., and with adjacent towns totals 2.5 Mio. inhabitants. It is a hub for both road and rail traffic across Europe, and also a centre for telecommunications, finance and insurance. Around Warsaw are the four main regional towns Plock, Ostro??ka, Siedlce and Radom, which are interconnected by road and train.
Mazovia has by far the highest GDP in Poland. GDP per capita in Warsaw (2011) was three times higher than the national average.



Necessity for reducing gas emissions and carbon share in the energy sector

Heat production by renewable energies
Electricity production by renewable energies

Although Mazovia is developing rapidly in economic terms, its share of RES usage is still lower than in other parts of the country. Energy investments in the past concentrated mostly on energy efficiency, almost enabling energy production and consumption to be balanced.

Due to the huge spatial, urban and economic diversity, as well as the quantity of agriculture in Eastern and Northern part of Mazovia Region, it is necessary to develop complex energy programmes to cater for particular branches and energy consumers.

These programmes should provide both the continuity of the energy efficiency activities and a reduction of gas emissions in economy, agriculture and households. They should also concentrate on diminishing the carbon share in the energy sector and on increasing RES applications.
