WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's treasury, which controls the country's top utilities, has criticized a draft renewables law written by the Economy Ministry in the latest sign of tension over support for green energy in the coal-dependent economy.

The economy ministry had in July proposed a draft bill assuming a decline in support for biomass co-firing, which involves mixing wood and other plant material with coal before it is burnt in power stations.

If enacted, the new law would make biomass co-firing unprofitable, the Treasury said in a comment sent by e-mail, adding Poland would not meet the European Union's renewable energy goals if it changed its support rules.
