English term or phrase:gas-powered
The increased significance of natural gas is closely linked with its rising use in electricity generation. Gas-powered generation is expected to increase by more than 360% by 2010, far outstripping the projected growth of total power production (5%). Nevertheless, natural gas will still contribute a mere 9% of the electricity mix in 2010 - far behind coal (89%). Up to now, Poland has done without nuclear power; it says it will not change its stance going forward. It once had five research reactors, only one of which is still operating. We expect no significant increase in the use of the new, renewable sources of energy (biomass, wind, sun etc.), since Poland does not have the requisite funding. The same holds true for most of the accession countries. All the same, the trend towards using natural gas, which burns with relatively little harm to the environment, will help a bit to improve the environmental balance.
