Attitudes towards Construction of Nuclear Power Stations in Poland

Aiming towards environmentally neutral energy production, Poland is gradually to move away from a reliance on coal and make greater use of renewable energy sources which are carbon-neutral, and also of what is seen as ‘clean’ electricity from nuclear generators, which have yet to be built. At least two such plants are planned. It is assumed that by the mid 2040s they will account for 20-25% of electricity production in Poland. The first reactor is to be ready in 2033. The 2011 Fukushima disaster reinforced Polish scepticism towards nuclear power, and since then this attitude has prevailed over support for it. However, currently this prevalence is not as great as in previous years. Two fifths of respondents are in favour of building nuclear power stations in Poland (39%, a rise of five percentage points since the previous survey in 2018), while 45% are against (a drop of 5 points).

More on this subject in the CBOS report.
This ‘Current Events and Problems’ survey (372) was conducted using a mixed-mode procedure on a representative sample of named adult residents of Poland, randomly selected from the National Identity Number (PESEL) register.
Respondents independently selected one of the following methods:
– Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI);
– Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI), respondents receiving researchers’ telephone numbers in an introductory letter from CBOS;
– Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI), where respondents filled in the online questionnaire independently, gaining access by means of a login and password provided in an introductory letter from CBOS.
In all three cases the questionnaire had the same structure and comprised the same questions. The survey was carried out between 6 – 16 May 2021 inclusive on a sample of 1163 people (54.8% using the CAPI method, 30% CATI and 15.2% CAWI).
CBOS has been conducting statutory research using the above procedure since May 2020, stating in each case the percentage of personal, telephone and internet interviews.
