Poland Prepares Draft Offshore Wind Bill

The Polish Ministry of Energy has prepared a draft bill supporting the development of offshore wind energy.

According to the Polish Ministry of Energy, the draft is now set for further legislative work by the government followed by the public consultations phase.

The ministry said it began working on developing a dedicated act that supports the development of offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea at the beginning of this year.

A range of partners interested in investing in the sector was invited to participate in the preparation of the regulations.

“It is the result of our intensive work and consultation with many partners, including sector and business representatives. I am convinced that the proposed regulations will significantly contribute to the future creation of a systemically formed offshore wind energy sector in Poland,” said Poland’s Minister of Energy Krzysztof Tchórzewski.

Minister Tchórzewski has also requested that the draft is included in the Council of Ministers’ legislative program. It is anticipated that the public consultation process will be launched within 2 or 3 weeks.

To remind, at the end of last year, Poland revealed plans to develop 8GW of offshore wind energy in the Baltic Sea by 2035.
