The project aimed to synthesise data on social groups and entities vulnerable to fuel and energy price increases within the context of Social Climate Fund support. We prepared characteristics of: (1) households at risk of energy poverty, (2) transport exclusion and (3) micro-enterprises particularly exposed to the increase in energy prices. We also provided recommendations about socially fair measures to facilitate the energy transition. * * * The project was financed by the Polish Ministry of Climate and Environment (agreement no: DFE-VI-12/2022)
Scientific and applied studies constitute the core activity of the Institute for Structural Research. We conduct all our research projects with a strong commitment to objectivity and methodology. We use the best available data and modern analytical tools. We focus on the labour market, demography, family and social policy, public finances, the healthcare system, energy and climate and macroeconomics. We are particularly interested in the relationship between individual areas and research studies that have a significant impact on public policy.
The project aims to present proposals for creating social welfare and labour market policies that will respond to the changes taking place under the influence of megatrends - digitisation, globalisation, climate change and demographic change - in labour markets and welfare state systems in Europe.

Risks associated with the decarbonisation of the Polish power system
Decarbonisation pathway will involve higher costs than the baseline pathway, but the electricity sector will emit half the CO2 by 2050. Read the key findings from the IBS report and seminar (28.11.).
