Financial assets in the context of other assets and capital

In the Group Strategy for 2022-2030, financial assets play a crucial role. Emphasis has been put on the stable financial situation that supports an efficient and effective organisation. TAURON Group is going to focus on procuring finance for its investments and operations, also using strategic and capital partnerships. One of the key directions is to maximise the use of funds that are dedicated to energy transition programmes. This approach results from both the defined goal of efficiency improvement (as measured by EBITDA growth rate per employee) as well as the need to implement the ambitious investment path. Investments will be carried out mainly in the area of electricity distribution and renewable energy sources, with over 80% of the planned expenditures, and in the area of district heating, which will be allocated over 8% of TAURON Group’s expenditures that are planned for the heat source decarbonisation and the district heating upgrading.

TAURON Group's transition requires a stronger distribution infrastructure that can be achieved through expansion and modernisation, new consumers connected and digitisation. Being the priority, these efforts will have the project finance secured. Likewise is the case of the increase in RES capacity which will also require a significant financial investment.

As the largest supplier of heat to the greater metropolitan area of Silesia and Dąbrowa, TAURON needs to ensure a stable heat supply for companies and households that will be economically efficient. Increasing environmental requirements, climate expectations and the increasing demand for district heating also require significant investments.

The 2030 investment programme will allow TAURON Group to remain the leader in the area of electricity distribution and a key player in the electricity and heat generation market in Poland.
