EU opens new rescEU energy hub in Poland

On 26 January, European Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič and Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki opened a new rescEU energy hub in Poland that will act as a logistical centre for delivering emergency energy assistance to Ukraine. 

The EU hub will allow international partners and the private sector to help channel their donations, while also fully financing the transport of supplies from the hub to Ukraine.

The hub is being used to deliver power generators to Ukraine, helping the country sustain electricity supply in the midst of Russia’s deliberate attacks on its energy infrastructure.

These EU-channelled generators range from smaller sizes, capable of powering single households, to much larger models suitable for keeping public buildings and vital community services running, such as hospitals and central heating points. 

The EU has awarded €114 million to Poland for purchasing generators to be part of this rescEU energy reserve. As a first step, 1,000 new generators from the rescEU reserve in Poland will be delivered to Ukraine. This comes on top of the 1,400 generators and millions of energy items already offered via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
