Windenergy in Poland

The State of Wind Energy in Poland

The energy report on the Polish wind power sector was released in June 2017, with an up-to-date analysis of developments in Poland, prepared by the Polish Wind Energy Association in cooperation with the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, TPA Poland consulting & tax company and Clifford Chance legal firm.

The world’s wind power sector enjoys a period of prosperity, as it continues to break records – at the end of 2016 wind farms in operation had a total capacity of 486.7 GW globally. However, new capacity installed in 2016 was 54.6 GW compared to 63.6 GW in previous year. In Poland, the installed capacity in wind farms amounts to 5.8 GW, putting Poland in 7th place in the European Union in terms of cumulated capacity.

RES Act – Auction model

Legal situation and conditions of wind power in Poland is complex. Wind Energy experts collected valuable information on the following topics:

  • Support for wind farms in Poland
  • RES Act
  • Auction regulations
  • Wind Farm Act
  • Wind turbine distances in Poland and EU

TPA energy expert, Wojicech Sztuba about the new RES rules: Waiting for the first auction

Polish Energy Sector: market trends, legal conditions

The Wind energy study also describes the current situation of the market, legal conditions, possibilities of support and risks awaiting developers and investors in this sector – now and in the future: Until 2030, as much as 6 GW in offshore wind could be built in Polish waters, not only generating additional electricity for the Polish power system, but also giving a significant boost to the Polish economy.
