Poland is the biggest beneficiary of EU funds under the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), receiving up to around €80 billion from the Cohesion Policy budget. Only 2.8% of this funding is dedicated to energy efficiency in buildings. At the same time, low energy performance of existing buildings (especially single-family houses) and use of old coal fired boilers causes significant air pollution.
