Poland re-commits to offshore wind

Industry Database

Polish State Secretary for Energy, Grzegorz Tobiszowski, has announced plans to develop 8GW of offshore wind by 2035. Poland will soon pass a law to this effect, spelling out the annual volumes up to this date.

WindEurope Chief Policy Officer Pierre Tardieu said: “Poland’s plans for 8GW of offshore wind by 2035 are very encouraging. The Polish Baltic Sea has enormous wind energy potential and it’s great to see Poland beginning to tap into this and boosting their existing offshore wind supply chain. Poland should now include detailed plans on both on- and offshore wind in its National Energy and Climate Plan for 2030. The first draft is due by the end of 2018.

“With its onshore auction and plans for offshore wind, Poland is now sending a powerful signal to other countries in Central and Eastern Europe that being ambitious on wind energy makes economic sense.”

Poland made the announcement at the opening of an auction for 1GW of onshore wind in November.
