ENEA Capital Group

A new "Corporate Strategy of the ENEA Capital Group for 2014-2020" has been adopted in 2013, thanks to which the Capital Group will become a fully integrated energy group.  Value increase through building customer confidence is the new mission of the Capital Group.

Building long-term relationships with Clients, growth in profitable areas, improving efficiency and optimal use of the potential of the organization are the strategic objectives of ENEA Capital Group.

Implementation of the planned investments in 2014-2020 incurs outlays in the total amount of PLN 20 billion. They will be covered by own funds and debt financing.

The growth path in the profitable areas will be achieved through the construction of a competitive generation portfolio. The Capital Group plans to expand the generating capacity by 1 075 MWe in the system power plants segment (completion of the power block no. 11 construction in Kozienice in 2017), by about 500 MWe from renewable energy sources and by about 300 MWe and 1 500 MWt in cogeneration sources and district heating networks.

The choice of fuel for cogeneration units will be derived from the analysis of the economic attractiveness of individual projects. Furthermore, the Capital Group also plans to invest in distribution and increase margins in both: the sales and wholesale trade.

In order to better manage risks in the ENEA Capital Group, a so called: Model Risk and Risk Register including 131 risks in ENEA Capital Group was created. Risk assessment was carried out in the form of workshops with key executives of six major companies of ENEA Capital Group. During the workshop, carefully selected working groups were engaged in the assessment of risks in the four-level scale, examining each risk in terms of possible effects, vulnerability and probability.

The Management Board of ENEA S.A. approved and adopted for use The Code of ENEA Capital Group in September 2013. It is a kind of corporate "constitution" which is to ensure efficient and transparent management of subsidiaries by introducing a statutory mechanism for the management of the Capital Group. The purpose of the amendments is to create a uniform economic entity which sanctions the main role of ENEA S.A. company.

The Code defines ENEA Capital Group “interest” term and obliges all companies to cooperate with other companies in the ENEA Capital Group in order to implement the Capital Group's strategy and mission,  create its value as a whole and maintain consistency. The act enables the implementation of common policies, such as: reporting , safety, audit, purchasing and marketing.

The existing holding contract emphasized the separateness of individual companies.
