One reason for the upward trend is that the residential subsidy programme by NFOŚiGW has been gaining momentum. “At the beginning, the programme was subject to many limitations. It did not allow grants for collector systems in new homes and those generating energy for home heating systems,” Janusz Starościk (left), Head of the Association of Manufacturers and Importers of Heating Appliances (SPIUG), explains. “These barriers were removed in January 2011, which greatly increased people's interest in the programme”.

Run by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOŚiGW), its start at the end of August 2010 ended a long period of transition: The last financial incentives for solar thermal installations had been paid out in 2009.
