Abstract

Computer analysis of energy sector expansion and its environmental impact W. Ciechanowicz, P. Holnicki, A. Kahiszko, A. Partyka, Z. Uhrynowski, A. Zochowski Systems Research Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences, 01-44^ Warszawa, Newelska 6, Poland INTRODUCTION Emission of sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides per capita in Poland is one of the biggest in Europe. High level of air pollution have a great impact on the environment (e.g. soil, forests, water, agriculture crops etc.) and affects people's health not only in Poland but also in neighbouring countries due to transboundary pollution flows. On the other hand, emissions from major power plants in other East European countries (East Germany, Czech Republic) affect significantly South-West regions of Poland [4]. There are several reasons of this situation. Hard coal and lignite are the main natural resources in Poland and will be utilized as the basic energy carriers in Polish energy sector and households
