The challenges that we face as a consequence of current and upcoming climate changes in combination with international agreements on the reduction of CO2 emissions by individual countries create a demand for renewable energy projects that can serve as an alternative to fossil energy sources. The slow pace of decarbonization of the Polish economy is a consequence of the decisions related to renewable energy projects, whether taken or not, by residents and individual enterprises. The purpose of this study was to identify the legal, economic and management barriers that limit the scalability of renewable energy projects implemented by housing cooperatives in Polish cities. To this end, this study examines the case of Poland’s largest solar power plant implemented by a housing cooperative on the rooftops of tall buildings.
