In 2013, a one-man position of Municipal Energy Manager was created. In 2016, it was decided to set up an Energy Management Team, which currently employs 6 people.
The Energy Law imposes an obligation on local governments to create an energy policy. Guidelines for the implementation of this obligation are contained in the following legal acts:
- Act on Municipal Self-Government of 8 March 1990.
(consolidated text of 12.10.2001, Journal of Laws No. 142 item 1591, as amended)
- Energy Law Act of 10 April 1997.
(consolidated text of 16 May 2006, Journal of Laws No. 89, item 625);
and Country Strategy Papers:
- Energy Policy of Poland until 2025 adopted by the Council of Ministers on 4 January 2005.
- National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) 2007 announced by the Ministry of Economy in June 2007.
- Development of the Low-Emission Economy Plan is consistent with the policy of Poland and results from the Assumptions of the National Programme for the Development of the Low-Emission Economy, adopted by the Council of Ministers on 16 August 2011.
The regulation of Article 18(1) of the Energy Law imposes tasks on municipalities in the field of supply of electricity, heat and gaseous fuels. The tasks of the commune include
- planning and organisation of the supply of heat, electricity and gaseous fuels in the municipality;
- planning lighting of public places and roads located in the commune;
- financing of lighting of streets, squares and public roads located in the commune;
- planning and organisation of activities to improve energy efficiency and promote energy saving solutions in the municipality.
Our goal is to undertake actions aimed at saving energy consumption in the public sector of the City of Bydgoszcz through:
- organizing tenders for the group purchase of electricity and gas fuel for the Bydgoska Grupa Zakupowa (Bydgoszcz Purchasing Group), which consists of the City of Bydgoszcz and the municipalities of the Bydgoszcz Metropolis Association.
- concluding contracts for the supply of heat, electricity and gas
- analysing the demand of municipal offices in the media, in order to select the right tariff and optimise consumption
- monitoring of indoor temperatures in public buildings and temperatures
- striving to automate the collection of energy data of municipal buildings (BZE)
- participation of the City in EU and international programmes and projects in the field of efficient use of energy, water and environmental protection
The tasks of the RES shall also include:
- developing a Climate Plan and Adaptation to the Effects of Climate Change (POKASZK)
- reporting on SEAP implementation activities
- the preparation of the Climate Balance Sheet
- preparation of the Inventory of District Heating Gases
- development of low-carbon economy plans
- obligations arising from the accession of the City of Bydgoszcz to the Covenant of Mayors
- projects increasing the share of renewable energy in the energy balance of the City
- plan for the supply of heat, electricity, electricity and gas to the cities
- promoting good practice
The other tasks of the Energy Management Team in the field of renewable energy sources is:
- Analysing the possibility of using RES in new facilities,
- Searching for RES financing sources,
- Submission of applications for new public facilities in the city,
- Study visits and conferences in the RES Demonstration Centre building
- Study visits for schoolchildren at regional installations (educational measures)
We participate in investment projects:
- Construction of 12 microinstallations on thermomodernized schools and kindergartens in Bydgoszcz with EU support, 102 million PLN is planned to be allocated in the coming years (including 60 million PLN of co-financing). Thanks to these investments, the city will spend less on heating and the buildings will gain aesthetic facades. (project in progress)
