Non-renewable resources are the main materials used in the production of electricity and heat at the PGNiG Group. Coal is used to produce electricity and heat mainly in the PGNiG TERMIKA Group’s CHP plants, while natural gas is used in the other companies for heating buildings, in heat and electricity production (including for electricity production in cogeneration and trigeneration), in industrial processes as a fuel for oil heaters in desulfurization and desalination processes, as a fuel for boilers, gas compression engines, gas turbines, and post-combustion of waste gases.

In 2021 PGNiGrecorded an increase in the volumes of gas used in heat and electricity generation, driven by a gradual shift from coal- to gas-fired units. The volume of gas burnt off in flare stacks depends on the number and duration of tests carried out on new exploration and production wells.
