Ecology or economics

About the project

The project "Ecology or economics – determinants and the propensity of Polish people to energy transition" aims to allow 5 doctoral students to carry out a joint scientific initiative, bringing together their interests and reflecting individual project members' skills.

Main research goal: identification of the determinants and the level of propensity of Polish people to the energy transition.

Secondary research goals: 

  • assessment of the energy transition process in Poland in comparison with other countries of the European Union; 

  • identification of factors influencing the decisions of Polish people as they pursue energy transition.

The project will enhance knowledge regarding the characteristics of society as energy consumers, important for policymakers and for assessing the impact of applied solutions, both from the household and business levels. Understanding the demand side of the energy market will enable better alignment of strategies and actions taken to implement energy transition plans, including Zielony Śląsk (Green Silesia).

The project team includes mgr Jakub Kubiczek (coordinator), mgr Bartlomiej Hadasik, mgr Dominika Krawczynska, mgr Kornelia Przedworska, mgr Aleksandra Ryczko.  


The project "Ecology or economics – determinants and the propensity of Polish people to energy transition" has been co-financed by the Metropolis GZM within the framework of the "Metropolitan Science and Education Support Fund" program for the years 2022-2024 in the amount of PLN 93,060.00.
