Poland plans to close Europe’s most polluting power plant by the end of 2036, according to a draft document published by local authorities.
The document, which is subject to public consultation, is part of the Lodz region’s application for support from the EU’s Just Transition Fund, aimed at helping regions bear the cost of shifting to a climate-neutral economy.
