Keywords: Renewable energy sources; conventional power plants; power balance; electricity balance

Summary/Abstract: The article contains an analysis of the power balance and the balance of electricity from the point of view of renewable energy sources. The author indicates that renewable energy sources are not fully available, so they can not be included in the power balance. It does not matter to the power balance how much power will be installed in renewable sources. This dispute in this area is settled by the laws of physics and no faith, climate beliefs or even money will change that. Renewable energy sources are put into the energy balance for political reasons. As a result of the priority, dispose power plants are not fully used, which results in the need to subsidize conventional power plants. Such subsidies are also applied in Poland. The "power market" being introduced is PLN 40 billion subsidies, mainly for coal-fired power plants.
