Investors believe in solar power in Poland. PV installations are the main winner of one more RES auction.

6 July 2017

Despite a general slow-down on the renewable energy market, the potential for the PV sector in Poland continues to grow. In 2013, the total installed capacity of PV installations in Poland did not exceed 2 MW. Now there is more than 100 MW, and according to information from the Polish transmission grid operator (PSE S.A.), the National Power System has room for 2 GW of installed capacity in solar power installations.

Investors in the electrical energy sector who plan to start up a PV installation may take advantage of the support system for RES installations. In the first auctions conducted in 2016 and 2017, support was guaranteed for a total of almost 300 MW of new PV projects.
