Abstract
Through research and interviews with several experts and stakeholders during the study visit in Zabrze, Poland, the main sources of air pollution in Zabrze and potential areas of intervention were identified. The project focused on residential heating in Zabrze, as coal based heating systems were identified as the main contributor to air pollution in the city. An alternative heating system scenario based on cleaner sources was suggested and compared to a baseline scenario in terms of cost and emission reduction potentials. Moreover, several enabling measures ranging from better data management to running campaigns to raise awareness and increased stakeholder collaboration was suggested in order to tackle the problem of air pollution.
