Abstract: Motivation: The issue of energy is a problem that systematically returns to political de-bate. At present, in the public opinion, there is a lack of consensus on an optimum energy production structure that would provide Poland energy security. The desire to show the relationship between the current situation of the Polish power industry and Poland’s energy security was the main motive for choosing the subject of this paper. Aim: The aim of this paper is to show the relationship between the use of conventional and renewable energy sources and Poland’s energy security in the context of economic aspects. Results: The analysis showed a low level of diversification of energy sources. It has been shown excessive dependence on import from Russia, significant energy intensity of the economy and unfounded, excessive support for the mining industry. On the basis of the conducted analysis, however, it is also possible to observe a gradual improvement of Poland’s situation in these issues.
