“Support for energy-intensive sectors related to sudden increases in natural gas and electricity prices in 2022.”

Zakład Włókienniczy Biliński Sp. J with its registered office in Konstantynowo Łódzki informs that it has received co-financing under the government program “Aid for energy-intensive sectors related to sudden increases in prices of natural gas and electricity in 2022”.

The granted assistance amount is PLN 1 105 839.

The program was developed on the basis of the Act of 29 September 2022 on the rules for the implementation of business support programs in connection with the situation on the energy market in 2022-2024. It is based on the updated “Temporary Crisis Framework for State Aid measures to support the economy following the aggression against Ukraine by Russia” published by the European Commission. The program is operated by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management.

The amount of funding will significantly contribute to the costs of expanding the renewable energy system, involving an increase in the installed capacity of photovoltaic panels to nearly 1000 kWh. The undertaken actions aim to diversify energy sources due to their rising costs, which impact the financial security and competitiveness of the enterprise in the market. The expansion of the system will also lead to a reduction in the amount of CO2 emissions per kilogram of textile product produced.

“Poland’s Energy Policy in the Context of Threats to the Development of the Textile Industry Sector” – Conference

On Friday, December 9, 2022, in company’s headquarters, a conference entitled “Poland’s energy policy in the aspect of threats to the development of the textile sector” was held.

The event was attended by owners and specialists from Zakład Włókienniczy Biliński, representatives of the Łódź branch of the Polish Textile Association, as well as invited guests engaged in energy and textile-related topics.

The discussion focused on the current situation in the energy sector, both locally and globally, ongoing and planned investments and their impact on the development of textile-oriented enterprises.

The mentioned projects are dependent on the energy policy pursued by the European Union, which includes decarbonization, or the shift away from coal and the increase in production from renewable sources. Nuclear energy is also considered, but decisions and investments in this area are linked to the individual situation of each EU member country. The ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the current sanctions against Russia, one of the main natural gas exporters, are also significant factors.

Faced with the growing energy crisis in the world, the question is not only about the methods of generating energy, but also about how to store it and increase production.

Energy transformation encompasses technological, economic, social, and environmental aspects. The textile industry, which is closely dependent on various sources and types of energy, faces the challenge of rising production costs and the need for innovations to maintain the competitiveness of companies.
