List of Projects

A. Description of project

A. 1) Title of project: Poland/Norway Coal-to-Gas Conversion - AlJ Pilot Project

The objectives of the project as a whole are to stimulate technological and institutional changes to demonstrate inter-fuel substitution and energy efficiency improvement as a means to support the country objectives. The total project aims at encouraging and introducing more rapid transition from coal to gas and introducing more energy efficiency in residential buildings.

The total project has the following components:

  • a coal-to-gas conversion component, involving investments in about 30 non-industrial small to medium-sized heat plants (boilers) for their conversion from coal to natural gas. The projects are for residential houses and public buildings. The new technologies include gas fired cogeneration of heat and electricity, condensing boilers as well as conventional gas-fired boilers.
  • an energy efficiency component, involving investments in insulation of buildings and the installation of energy efficient equipment in some hundred new residential units.
  • a technical assistance component to project participants, including institutional training, project management, environmental monitoring and nation-wide marketing.

The AIJ component of the project is funded with a grant of 1.1 million USD from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs of the Government of Norway. Non-AIJ related financing of the project includes a grant of 25 million USD from the GEF and a further 22 million USD from the Polish National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (National Fund), voivodeship funds (VF), Environmental Protection Bank (BOS) and private investors in Poland.

The portion of the project funded by the Government of Norway functions as an AIJ demonstration project with the objective of assisting Parties to the UNFCCC in gaining experience on how the mechanism of AIJ might work. The project is administered by the World Bank and is related to other Bank operations in Poland. The GEF funding is separate from the AIJ financing.

The overall project has an estimated lifetime of 17 years and will give substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and at the same time reduce air pollution. It has been planned in a manner consistent with national priorities for sustainable energy development.

A. 2) Participants/actors:

The investor is the Government of Norway, represented by the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (RNMFA), Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs. The host is the Government of Poland, represented by the Ministry of Environmental Protection, Natural Resources and Forestry (MoE), Economic Department.

The entity responsible for co-ordination and reporting on AIJ activities in Poland is the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NF), JI-Secretariat. The implementing agency is the Environmental Protection Bank (BOS). Within the World Bank, the Department for Central and Eastern Europe is charged with management of the project, while the Global Environment Department assists in development of the AIJ component.

The host investors are the private boiler owners, public entities and self-governments.

General description:

Poland's energy economy is dominated by coal, which is domestically produced. The related greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution problems are huge.

The share of coal was 77% in 1991, while the share of oil and gas was 21%, one of the lowest in continental Europe. A shift towards an oil and gas share of 53 to 73% has been estimated by the World Bank to lead to at least 50% reduction in the carbon dioxide emissions.

One of the reasons for the widespread use of coal is the use for space heating. The use of gas for space heating was earlier prohibited and the use of oil was held back by various measures. The aim was to limit foreign exchange expenditures on energy imports. Coal for space heating is used both in district heating systems, block heating plants (heating several apartments) and in individual heating in stoves. District heating companies own about 16 GW coal fired boilers, consuming about 6 million tons of coal per year. About 3,2 GW of this capacity is, by the World Bank, considered suitable for replacement with gas fired boilers.

Removal of the direct regulation of fuel use will result in a shift from coal to gas or oil. Coal will for reasons of price remain the preferred fuel for relatively large boilers, where economies of scale offsets the higher costs of coal handling and emission control equipment. Also in small boilers, coal has until recently been the preferred fuel for economic reasons, but higher coal prices will reduce its use in the long term.

Environmental standards have been and will be further strengthened for sulphur, particulates and nitrogen oxide, and effective enforcement will be phased in over many years. This will accelerate the price-driven conversion of small boilers from coal to gas. The emission standards are administered by local authorities and linked to these is a system of fees and fines. Emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particulates, as well as carbon dioxide are taxed. The fees on carbon dioxide are only of symbolic nature. The other fees could have some albeit small effects on conversions from coal to gas.

There are several obstacles to conversions from coal to gas. They include lack of access to financing, budgetary procedures of publicly owned heating companies, and lack of price incentives. Cost savings in heat production are not felt by consumers because heat prices are subsidised. Only the local authorities have a well defined interest in reducing costs but often lack the financial means for investment.

For the immediate future, the conversion of coal to gas will not be financially attractive without taking into account the global warming considerations and/or local pollution effects.

The World Bank is acting as Trustee of GEF Norwegian funds for the project.

On behalf of the Government of Poland, the Minister of EPNR&F is a grantee of this fund. The MoE, through its Department of Ecological Policy, is responsible for: (a) overall co-ordination and implementation of this project; and (b) monitoring and reviewing project activities and products to assure that they are of a high quality and are accomplished in a cost- effective and timely manner.

Recognising the complexity of Joint Implementation Program, the Minister of EPNR&F has established the Polish Secretariat for Joint Implementation in NF.

BOS is acting as the Implementing Agency for this project and as administrator of project activities and funds to be used solely for the purposes of the project.

a) Please ensure that detailed contact information for all organisations mentioned is reported under section A.2 above.

5.2) Monitoring

A monitoring plan to provide data for evaluation of the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions as well as other environmental benefits the operating costs and the energy savings have been established.

5.2.1) MONITORING OBJECTIVE

The objective of environmental monitoring for the coal-to-gas conversion component of the project is to provide data for evaluation of pollutant emission reduction, to assess effectiveness of the operating costs associated with conversion of coal fired boilers to natural gas ones and to evaluate energy saving. Monitoring should ensure detailed evaluation of revenues and benefits to be reaped from the project's implementation.

5.2.2) COURSE OF REALISATION

To ensure use of unified data collecting procedures and their analysis, there will be one contractor selected by competitive bidding, responsible for preparation and carrying out monitoring all over the country at the realisation stage of the coal-to-gas conversion component of the project. The above mentioned contractor will implement the monitoring program under supervision of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, Natural Resources and Forestry (MoE) represented by the State Environmental Inspectorate (PIOS).

The latter's role will consist mainly in working out the rules for monitoring performance, approval of a monitoring implementation plan for each facility, occasional inspection of work in progress, and verification of all the reports submitted.

PIOS will supervise environmental monitoring for all the facilities involved in the project and will evaluate results obtained in effect of individual implementation of fuel conversion projects. The role of Environmental Protection Bank (BOS), which is the Implementing Agency for the project, will focus on undertaking the necessary actions ensuring that monitoring of old boilers prior to the conversion can take place before their modification and on administration and management of the pertinent activity.

5.2.3) SCOPE OF WORK

To attain the project's objectives the contractor will undertake the following actions:

  • it will ensure taking all measurements in conformity with the Polish standards,
  • it will determine the detailed program of measurement, collecting and processing of the monitored data in co-operation with the PIOS.

The program should contain in particular:

5.2.3.1) Technical monitoring plan

Technical monitoring of coal fired boiler rooms subject to conversion to gas fuel at the implementation phase and following realisation.

Monitoring's objective is an ecological economic and energy-wise evaluation of the effectiveness of conversion of about 30 non-industrial coal fired boiler rooms of up to l5 MW output to gas fired high efficiency boilers or combined heat and power generation facilities.

Monitoring requires measurement and reporting of technical parameters and emissions of individual coal fired boiler rooms subject to conversion.

Technical monitoring includes evaluation of the technical state of boilers and their instrumentation, auxiliaries, quantities of fuel and electrical energy used, fuel and water balance, quantity of thermal and electric energy produced and efficiency of heat transmission and use by recipients.

In particular this pertains to such problems as:

a) General characteristics of boiler rooms

b) Boilers and auxiliaries:

  • evaluation of technical condition of steam and water boilers using their rated characteristics and actually obtained parameters
  • evaluation of technical condition of boilers' basic instrumentation
  • evaluation of water quality and its treatment
  • evaluation of technical condition of auxiliaries including dust collectors and chimneys
  • thermal balance of coal fired boilers
  • thermal balance of gas-fired boilers

c) Heat distribution networks, heat transfer systems and major end-user building facilities:

  • condition of heat distribution network and its total length
  • technical parameters of heat insulation used
  • characteristics of heat distribution centres including degree of their automation
  • determination of heat loss at boiler room building, in heat distribution network, in heat substations and at recipient level
  • other technical factors affecting the obtained level of energy efficiency of significance for individual boiler rooms
  • distribution balance of all produced energy and water including main recipients

d) Characteristics of fuels used prior to and following conversion:

  • average net calorific value
  • average total content of combustible sulphur (S)
  • average ash content
  • average humidity
  • average carbon (C) content.

5.2.3.2) Emissions monitoring plan

Ecological monitoring of the selected pollution emissions sources to determine effects of conversion from solid to gas fuel.

a) Subject Matter

The assumptions pertain to about 30 small and medium non-industrial boiler rooms (hereinafter to be referred to as the facilities) with a thermal output of under 5MW per boiler unit presently using solid fuel, predominantly coal.

b) Scope

The scope of these assumptions includes parametric identification of the above mentioned facilities in the aspect of ecological change resulting from conversion from solid to gas fuel.

c) Goal

The ecological monitoring goal is evaluation of reduction of pollution emitted into the atmosphere by the above mentioned facilities, which will be an effect of fuel conversion as well as equipment modernisation, on the basis of technical and emission measurements prior to and following conversion.

d) Realisation

Realisation of the goal as defined should take place in stages, also for reasons of effective control supported by modern data collecting techniques.

Stage I

  • Encoding selected facilities and establishment of a data base to collect current information
  • Taking inventory of the facilities as per the prepared inquiry form
  • Preparation of documentation prescribing methods of taking measurements including measurement cross-sections and samplers as standard connector M 64x4mm
  • Making changes and alterations for making measurements as per documentation.

Stage II

  • Taking measurements of concentration/percentage by volume of pollution emitted from individual facilities
  • Emissions include S02, NO, N02(NOx), CO, C02, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter and, additionally, 02
  • Volume of flue gases stream and percentage of H20 vapours in flue gases will also be measured
  • Analysing results of emissions measurements and concentration, including conversion, to 7% 02 with a view to later comparison in form of a unified sheet.

Stage III

  • Prepare documentation describing sampling and measurement facilities required for recording technical performance and emissions resulting from conversion and modernisation
  • Effecting appropriate changes if needed.

Stage IV

  • Taking measurements of concentration/percentage by volume of pollution (including S02, NO, N02(NOx), C0, C02, volatile organic compounds and dust and, additionally, 02 ) emitted from the installations following modernisation of individual facilities
  • Measuring volume of flue gas streams and percentage of H20 vapours in flue gases
  • Analysing results of emission measurements and concentration including conversion to 7% 02
  • Analysis of Stage II and Stage IV results and preparation of final report on effects produced as consequence of project goals
  • Working out the conclusions from the action with a view to using them at modernisation of other facilities.

e) Course of Realisation

Following approval of a given facility for conversion, but no later than one year before modernisation; its monitoring will have begun by taking periodic measurements of pollution emissions (implementation of STAGE II and STAGE IV). The reports on subsequent measurements will be included in the data base.

f) Measuring Technique

Measuring of flue gas flow, gas velocity, dust emissions will be conducted so as to conform to the requirements of the PN-Z-04030-7:1994 standard (of The International Standard ISO 10870) as for the exact measurement.

g) Measuring Equipment

The basic rule will be the use of portable measuring systems or the mobile ones capable of registering in their memory measurement results. This applies to both the measurements of concentration of individual substances, volume of flue gas stream (e.g. DFM 1194 flow-meter) and concentration and emission of dust (e.g. EMIOTEST 2594 or equal equipped with a module for measuring gas moisture).

h) Computation of Results of Measurements

  • When calculating final results of measurements at Stage II, case a), as the result there should be given an average emission E as the weighted mean in regard to the time of duration of the full measuring cycle, including all the combustion phases.
  • When calculating final results of measurements at Stage II, case b) and at Stage IV, case a), as the result there should be given an average emission E as the weighted mean in regard to the time of duration of the full measuring cycle, including all the combustion phases.


5.2.3.3) Performance report format

In regard of contents of the report on realisation of conversion of coal fired boiler rooms to gas fired ones.

a) Report Objective

The report should outline in a concise form progress of realisation of coal fired boiler rooms' conversion to the gas fired ones inclusive of the realisation stages and guidelines offered in 5.2.3.1) and 5.2.3.2) to "MONITORING PLAN FOR COAL-TO-GAS CONVERSION PROJECT".

The report's content should include a brief description of individual events accompanying project realisation illustrated with tables and diagrams.

It should end up with conclusions useful for improvement of realisation of the other projects of the same type and for the final evaluation of ecological, economic and technical effectiveness achieved as a result of boiler room reconstruction in connection with conversion from coal to gas fuel.

b) Reporting Procedure

It is assumed that three reports will be drawn up for each facility:

  • Preliminary report
  • Interim report
  • Final report


5.2.4) LOGISTICS

After the contract is effective, BOS and the Contractor will develop a mutually acceptable schedule for the pre-conversion monitoring of old coal-fired boiler facilities selected for conversion to gas-firing under the project, including a monitoring schedule of the heat distribution and transfer systems and the end-user building facilities supplied by the old boilers.

Similarly, BOS and the Contractor will develop a schedule for the post-conversion monitoring of new facilities and their associated heat distribution, transfer and end-use systems.

Such schedules (Preconversion Monitoring Schedule and Post-Conversion Monitoring Schedule) will include organisational solutions guaranteeing the starting date for the pre-conversion and post-conversion monitoring activities at each individual project site and the access of the contractor to the individual project site to carry out such activities.

BOS will notify the Contractor at least 3 weeks prior to the proposed monitoring start date of each individual project site.

5.2.5) REPORTING

C. Compatibility with and supportiveness of national economic development and socio-economic and environmental priorities and strategies

Describe (to the extent possible) how the activity is compatible with and supportive of national economic development and socio-economic and environment priorities and strategies.

Poland seeks energy security through stable energy deliveries at socially acceptable prices and with a minimal damage to the environment. Among the priority actions are to diversify the primary energy supplies and to comply with international environmental agreements to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. This project is designed to be fully-integrated and consistent with the goals and development strategies of the government of Poland.

AIR PROTECTION

This is based on:

  • the "Implementation Program of the National Environmental Policy till the year to 2000",
  • voivodeship lists of priority projects regarding environmental protection for 1997,
  • and proposals submitted by the Minister of EPNR&F.

The aim of the undertakings concerning the air pollution control is to achieve reductions of pollutant emissions into the atmospheric air by both improving the fuel quality parameters and replacing fuel, by installing equipment that reduces the flue gas emissions of pollutants, by modernising and replacing technologies and by conserving energy.

1) Directions:

  1. Support for the undertakings leading to reductions of the emissions into the atmospheric air of gas and particulate pollutants, by means of the modernisation and upgrading of the fuel production and burning technologies.
  2. Support for the undertakings related to the rationalisation of heat systems, including the recovery of heat, national production of highly efficient heating equipment, combined with the use of unconventional energy sources.

2) Selection criteria for projects in the field of air protection

  1. elimination of low-stack emissions;
  2. supporting projects connected with the construction of systems supplying gas and district heating to spas, tourist destinations and protected areas;
  3. improving heating efficiency, especially linked to the elimination of household stoves and existing local boilers with low efficiency and poor technical condition through a comprehensive modification of heating systems;
  4. control of gaseous and ash emissions from power generation and large hard and (lignite) brown coal-fired energy cogeneration plants, especially having an impact on Poland's international commitments;
  5. improving energy efficiency;
  6. modification of industrial processes in order to improve energy efficiency and reduce harmful emissions;
  7. promoting non - conventional energy source projects;
  8. supporting modern technical solutions limiting the environmental impact of and transport, in particular city transport, in the context of exhaust fumes, noise and vibration emissions including support in equipping monitoring services;
  9. controlling non-ionising electromagnetic radiation.

D. Benefits derived from the activities implemented jointly project

Whenever possible, quantitative information should be provided. Failing that, a qualitative description should be given. If quantitative information becomes available, it could be submitted using the update(s). (If the amount of quantitative information is too large, the source could be indicated.)

Item

Please fill in

Describe environmental benefits in detail:

Anticipated global benefits of the total project include a 65 % reduction in CO2 emissions by converting small coal fired boilers to gas firing, and a 28 % CO2 reduction by increasing efficiency in new residential buildings. Local benefits include virtual elimination of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and particulates and significant reduction in nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted by the converted boilers.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of environmental benefits?

Yes

Planned environmental benefits:

141 698 tCO2/year (concerning 12 projects); 3 259 tCO2/year (concerning the AIJ component of the project or 2.3% of total planned environmental benefits).

Describe social/cultural benefits in detail:

Implementation of the pilot activities will have a positive impact on local air quality and will contribute on an incremental basis to improved air quality regionally; especially will improve ambient air quality in the historic urban centres, that represent national heritage.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of social benefits?

no

Describe economic benefits in detail:

The overall attractiveness of the total program investment (involving investments at perhaps 40 separate sites) can only be estimated by taking the Krakow pilot projects as representative. Analyses show that the conversion to gas using higher efficiency technology is not financially viable. The Internal Rates of Return (IRR) in two cases are negative. To achieve the boiler owner's assumed 25 percent target IRR, the grant finance requirement is about 34 percent (or USD 130,000) and 60% (or USD 2.94 million) of the individual project costs at Jana Street (USD 385,000) and Warszawska Street (USD 4.86 million), respectively.

The energy efficiency and conservation measures were assumed to apply to both the with project and reference cases. The investment costs for these improvements can be financially justified by: (a) the reduction in the investment cost for new boilers, since the capacity of the replaced boiler is downsized; and (b) the reduction in annual fuel and maintenance cost. At Jana Street, the payback period for these improvements would be four years, equivalent to a rate of return of 23 percent; at the Polytechnic University, the payback period would be three years, equivalent to rate of 34 percent.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of economic benefits?

Yes

E. Calculation of the contribution of activities implemented jointly projects that bring about real, measurable and long-term environmental benefits related to the mitigation of climate change that would not have occurred in the absence of such activities

The project cost-effectiveness expressed in the size of the grant per ton of CO2 equivalents is for the typical high efficiency gas-fired boiler between 11 and 43 USD, while the cost of avoided emissions from a condensing boiler would be about 60 USD. For the housing projects, the costs would seem to vary between 90 and 120 USD per ton of CO2 equivalents. As new practices and energy saving equipment become more common in Poland, prices are expected to drop considerably and thus help fulfil the objective of the project more cost-effectively.

Uncontrolled emissions from black coal mines in Poland are assumed to average 20-25 m3 per ton of coal produced. The advantage of reduced emissions of methane from coal mining is not included in the calculations of emission benefits. Also the lifetime of the new gas-fired boilers has in the calculation of emission benefits conservatively been estimated to last for 17 years.

E. 1) Estimated emissions without the activity (project baseline):

Description of the baseline or reference scenario, including methodologies applied:

In the absence of the total project, reengineering and replacement of existing coal fired boilers only at the end of their service life would be the most common choice of boiler owners due to a low investment price and the familiarity with coal technology. A shift to new coal fired boilers was chosen as the baseline knowing that this is a conservative choice for calculating the probable emission saving. The abatement effect is thus the difference in emissions between new coal-fired boilers and new gas-fired boilers.

E. 2) Estimated emissions with the activity:

Description of the scenario, including methodologies applied:

For both the reference case and the „with project" cases, CO2 emissions were estimated based on: (a) annual heat demand (which is the same for the with project and reference cases); (b) efficiency of heat supply facilities (coal-fired boilers, gas-fired condensing boilers or cogeneration units); (c) unit emission factors for gas, LFO and coal; (d) share of heat produced by the cogeneration unit and the peak boilers. Additional CO2 emission credits were attributed to the cogeneration units, resulting from the displacement of the electricity now generated from coal in the national power system at 34 percent efficiency.

F. Bearing in mind that the financing of activities implemented jointly shall be additional to financial obligations of Parties included in Annex II to the Convention within the framework of the financial mechanism as well as to current official development assistance flows, please indicate

Source of project funding

including pre-feasibility stage

(For each source one line)

Amount

(converted to US dollars)

Government of Norway1

1.1 mill USD

GEF

25 mill USD

Poland (NFEP&WM, VFEP&WM, BOS, owner's contribution)

22 mill USD

1The contribution of the Government of Norway is provided from a separate budget line, the Norwegian Climate Fund, which has been established separate from, and in addition to, the development assistance accounts and will not be reported as part of Norway's ODA. This contribution is provided in addition to meet Norway's financial commitments under UNFCCC.

The Norwegian co-financing was provided in addition to the Norwegian contribution to the GEF in 1993. The availability of extra Norwegian co-financing served to expand the project scope beyond what would have been undertaken in the absence of this funding. Specifically, the extra Norwegian resources resulted in an increase in the targeted number of boiler installations to be converted by the project. In effect, the Norwegian co-financing is covering the non-GEF financed portion of the (expanded) total incremental cost financing requirement and is additional to the financial obligations under the Convention and to regular development financing. The Norwegian government is not seeking emission credits from its investment in the project.

G. Contribution to capacity building, transfer of environmentally sound technologies and know-how to other Parties, particularly developing country Parties, to enable them to implement the provisions of the Convention. In this process, the developed country Parties shall support the development and enhancement of endogenous capacities and technologies of developing country Parties.

Describe briefly the transfer of environmenally sound technology and know-how including where appropriate the type of technology, terms, education, capacity building, etc.

The introduction of improved technologies would facilitate the Government's efforts to pursue its environmental priorities and standards aggressively and to take full advantage of the macroeconomic conditions and other incentives that induce energy efficiency and conservation.

With largely decontrolled coal prices, a proper gas pricing policy, rising labour costs, and proper set-up and enforcement of environmental fees and fines that reflect the true costs of environmental damage, coal-to-gas conversion would become a financially attractive and self supporting option. The activity could be made more self-sustaining if support were provided to develop an independent power market based on small gas-fired cogeneration systems, high-efficiency boilers and advanced energy-efficient building equipment - insulation, glazing, lighting and appliances - that are widely available.

The scope for using innovative technologies such as high-efficiency gas-fired boilers and packaged gas-fired cogeneration units and for integrating improvements in heat energy supply, distribution, and transfer systems and in end-use efficiency in buildings to improve the cost- effectiveness of the abatement of CO2 emissions needs to be demonstrated through pilot investments. Although the technologies are well-established, their development in Poland and in other Central and Eastern European countries has so far been limited.

The present activity is designed as a catalyst to stimulate self-replicable technological and institutional changes that would promote coal-to-gas conversion in small and medium-size boilers and induce more energy-efficient practices in the architectural design and operation of new residential buildings. The techniques, once successfully demonstrated in Poland, are replicable in the large number of coal-dependent/intensive transition economies that have access to gas supplies.

Institutional Strengthening. The proposed project would contribute to a strengthening of Poland's capacity, at the national and local levels and in the areas selected for project-supported conversion activities, to: (a) plan and implement, on a national basis, the innovative and cost-effective types of environmental improvement activities being supported under the proposed project; (b) develop experience with the design, installation and operation of interventions to improve the heat supply system; (c) create an institutional capability to assess global externalities such as CO2 emission abatement in project analyses; and (d) improve the implementation of public awareness programs for energy efficiency and conservation.

Fill in as appropriate:

H. 1) Any practical experience gained:

1) MANAGEMENT AND PROGRAM EXECUTION

a) Information concerning STAP performance:

  • a working meeting of all STAP members took place between 26 - 29 August 1996. STAP members reviewed 25 applications for funding aimed at boiler houses modernisation. 15 applications were approved for Implementation (including 12 high efficiency boilers and 3 cogenerations). The report was made and submitted to BOS and MoE,
  • the report of energy auditor relating to energy efficiency improvement in new residential buildings was approved by 3 STAP members (1 foreign among them), within the framework of the energy efficiency for new residential buildings component.

b) Description of consulting services and contractors:

  • a contract with consultant for preparation of TOR for energy auditor has been concluded,
  • TAG members have been asked to give their opinion on funds allocation (27 applications) aimed at boiler houses modernisation,
  • energy auditor has been chosen - the National Energy Conservation Agency (NECA) and contract with this firm has been signed within the framework of the energy efficiency for new residential buildings component,
  • a bidding documents have been prepared and 5 firms have been chosen (agreed with the World Bank) and these firms have been asked to submit their offer for boiler owner representative.

c) Description of the marketing plan implementation:

  • organisational entities of BOS were dealing with marketing under the current activity of central and regional bank's entities using previously prepared leaflets informing about this project, and contacts with environmental protection departments of Voivodeship Authorities and the National Fund of Environmental Protection.

d) The environmental monitoring program accomplishment:

  • MoE has prepared the environmental monitoring program (approved by the World Bank),
  • all activities concerned with bidding procedure to select a company responsible for technical and environmental monitoring of the boilers have been commenced by the GEF Project Office.

e) Training program implementation:

  • training of specialists under the GEF project did not take place,
  • the employees of GEF project office BOS have been providing the bank branch workers, local experts and TAG members with up-to-date information.

f) Characteristics of the management system:

  • Minister has assigned his plenipotentiary and an Economic Department to supervise the implementation of the GEF Project instead of Ecological Policy Department. GEF Project is implemented under the existing BOS structure which consists of the GEF project office in the headquarters and the local branches of the Bank.

  1. Short description of expenditures (goods, materials and civil works, contractual services, technical assistance, concluded contracts, opened letters of credit - committed sources):

A contract between MPEC and BOS concerning modernisation of the boiler house in Cracow, at Œw. Jana street has been signed under the pilot project. A turn key bidding invitation has been published.

H. 2) Technical difficulties:

Organisational and investment problems arose:

  • an execution of the pilot project at the Polytechnic University in Cracow is under threat. It is impossible to publish an invitation for a bid aimed at an investment realisation due to the insufficient financial resources supplementary to the grants (the National Fund was unable to determine whether it could allocate its financial resources to the project).
  • preliminary valuation shows that providing small boiler houses (below 1.0 MW) with the grants is uneconomical from the National Fund's effectiveness point of view (costs of servicing per each individual project - e.g. hiring the boiler owner representative are higher than the granted amount). Additionally, the complex and time-consuming procedure is troublesome to an investor who has to operate with domestic inflation still running high, and grant's value is small. Due to this fact, 2 applications approved by STAP would probably not be effected.
  • the complex and time- consuming procedure resulted in the resignation of prevailing part of the boiler owners from GEF grant approved by STAP.
  • modernisation of any boiler house is impossible in 1997 without an efficient reconciliation system of the needed documents between the World Bank and the Polish partner and without taking into account the specific of the Polish economy. The prompt selection of the firm which would carry out the environment monitoring is also essential in order to conduct a modernisation of any boiler house in 1997.

H. 3) Negative impacts and/or effects encountered:
