By Bertrand Le Guern on ParisTech Review

La Pologne s'est engagée en 2009 dans la production de gaz et de pétrole de schiste. Ce choix a intégré les perspectives économiques, mais aussi les questions sensibles de l'indépendance énergétique et de la sortie du tout-charbon. L'expérience polonaise est ainsi ancrée dans une situation particulière. Peut-elle servir de modèle?
In 2009, Poland set out to produce shale gas and oil. This choice has taken in consideration the economic outlook, but also sensitive issues like energetic independence and exiting an all-coal powered policy. The Polish experience has thus embarked in a particular situation. Can it serve as a role model for other countries?
