G4-EC2 Financial implications and other risks and opportunities for the activities of the organisation, arising from climate changes
Export table to Excel Zoom
Area Risk type Risk description Risk valuation Risk management
Renewable Energy Sources Hydrological drought phenomenon (physical) Volatility of hydrological conditions (insufficient water flow) leading to decrease in revenues from production of electricity. loss of 10% of the planned revenues from hydropower plants. constant monitoring of water management and hydro facilities; periodic inspections of the technical condition of the facilities; constant cooperation and exchange of information with the Regional Water Management Authority; modernization of water locks and generation units to increase control over the throughput; analysis of the current situation and selection of power plants in which it is possible to postpone the overhauls and maintenance operations.
Renewable Energy Sources Risk of atmospheric factors associated with the operation of wind farms
(physical)
Risk associated with unfavorable atmospheric conditions (excessive or insufficient wind speed, icing of turbine rotor blades leading to shut-downs), causing reduction or periodic loss of revenues from generation of electricity. loss of 5% of the planned revenues from wind farms optimization and automation of wind turbine operations; constant monitoring of wind conditions; constant technical supervision over the work of wind turbines.
Generation Risk of loss of the heat market
(other)
The risk is associated with decrease in ordered heating capacity by the off-takers, resulting in decrease in the volume of sold heat and, consequently, deterioration of electricity generation efficiency as a result of progress in building construction technologies, thermal modernization of buildings, and modernization of end user heating systems. decrease in revenues from ordered heating capacity in individual Tauron Wytwarzanie branches. looking for new buyers; flexible pricing policy.
Heat Weather risk (physical) Occurring and continuing weather anomalies. reduced demand for heat was assumed as a result of temperatures 1.8 degree higher than assumed in the plan. use of the experience, expertise and financial instruments in heat sales planning, taking into account atmospheric factors
Mining Risk of decreased demand for coal
(other)
Risk stemming from unfavorable market conditions, resulting from thermal modernization of buildings, warm winter, and abandoning coal as a fuel in residential buildings. loss of 10% of revenues from sales of coarse and medium coal grades compared to the plan. ongoing analysis of production of coarse and medium coal grades; ongoing monitoring of the market demand for coarse and medium coal grades; marketing activities.

Description of standards, methodologies and assumptions adopted for calculating the values of the above indicators and coefficients of conversion into GJ Remarks, comments
TAURON Wydobycie In 2016, ZG Janina of TAURON Wydobycie S.A. purchased and consumed 484,506 GJ of electricity and 91,964 GJ of heat,
In 2016, ZG Sobieski purchased and consumed 591,164 GJ of electricity and 116,492 GJ of heat.
Kopalnia Wapienia „Czatkowice” Table 1 – the “fuels” line item contains the combined consumption of ethyl gasoline and diesel fuel
Table 3 – heat is generated in the form of steam used entirely for heating purposes
TAURON Wytwarzanie Tables 1 and 2 present the volume of chemical energy for total electricity and heat generation in 2016.
In Table 1, the “liquid fuels” line item should include heating oil, but in order to avoid a distortion of data, this type of oil is shown only in the “heating oil” line item.
In Table 2, the “biofuels” line item should include biomass, but in order to avoid a distortion of data, this value is shown only in the “biomass” line item.
In Table 3, the sum of electricity purchased on the balancing market and electricity produced and consumed for own purposes is reported.
