In connection with this, ZE PAK SA together with representatives of Eastern Wielkopolska Region made efforts to take advantage of the opportunity that the EC initiative in the scope of creating the Coal Platform in transition brings to the region. Simultaneously, there was created the concept of "Just Transition" to reflect the nature of changes in coal regions. The voivodship self-government in cooperation with the Management Board of ZE PAK SA developed an agreement, which is the first step to wider cooperation in the transformation of the Eastern Wielkopolska Region. The agreement is also to make people aware of the need to use support instruments in the area of ​​aid for the entire Region, creating opportunities for the development of energy from renewable energy sources, development of new generation technologies, investments in new economic areas, moving to a low or zero-emission economy, including development of social programs.


 The current situation on the energy market prompts ZE PAK SA to look for new, low-emission energy sources that are an alternative to coal. In order to use the assets in its resources, it developed concepts, rules and schedule of investments, which, with the support of mining regions within the Coal Platform, will give impetus to the development of the ZE PAK Group in new areas of activity for the coming years. Among the considered projects, the following should be mentioned: construction of solar farms on reclaimed areas of the Group, Adaptation of a part of the coal installation for biomass burning, Construction of a heat storage for the heating needs of Konin City, Construction of wind farms on reclaimed areas of the Group, Construction of an energy storage system at the site of ZE PAK for the needs of RES, Construction of a logistics centre with development of solar panels on the roofs, Construction of infrastructure for the production, storage and distribution of hydrogen, Production of photovoltaic panels, production of assembly elements and assembly of photovoltaic installations.
