Fast Market Research announces the availability of a new Business Monitor International report, "Poland Power Report Q4 2015" on their comprehensive research portal


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/14/2015 -- Investors in Poland's power sector will have to be wary of populist policies that are unveiled ahead of the October 2015 general election, which could lead to greater government intervention in the utilities sector. As a tight electoral race forces the incumbent PO and the opposition PiS into a bidding war for votes, there will be reduced visibility on policy formation , deterring private investors.

The biggest risks to investors in the Polish power sector ahead of the October 2015 parliamentary election are political. There is a non-negligible risk of a change of government in October, which poses risks to investors through reduced visibility surrounding policy formation and continuity, and also through populist policies targeting specific sectors - particularly the power sector.

At the time of writing, incumbent Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz and her Civic Platform (PO) government are trailing in the polls to the opposition Law and Justice (PiS) party. We highlight the PiS is not currently likely to achieve an overall majority and has no obvious coalition partner - but investors should be wary of the increased probability of populist policies unveiled even before the election as tight electoral race forces PiS and PO into a bidding war for votes. This will deter private investment as regulatory uncertainty over issues such as electricity prices, the future of state-owned utilities, and the role of coal and emissions targets weighs on the outlook for the power market.
