During the first debate of the European industry and representatives of EU institutions since the publication of the “Fit for 55” package, PGE appealed to co-legislators for a more ambitious increase in the Modernisation Fund and continued support in the transitional period for gas investments that will facilitate the phase-out of coal in line with the technological neutrality principle.
