Poland plans to develop 8GW of offshore wind energy in the Baltic Sea by 2035 and will soon pass a law to this effect, Polish State Secretary for Energy, Grzegorz Tobiszowski, said.

The law will set out the annual volumes up to 2035.

“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,” WindEurope Chief Policy Officer Pierre Tardieu said.

”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 could receive its first offshore wind power by 2025 through the 600MW Polenergia Bałtyk III project developed jointly by Polenergia and Equinor.

The two companies are also jointly developing the 600MW Polenergia Bałtyk II wind farm, scheduled to come online by 2027.
