1,000 MW project pipeline for Poland
Renewables have steadily gained in importance in Poland in recent years. RP Global has been present in Poland for over 15 years, having already developed and built wind farms there, and is taking a further new step with entry into the country’s solar power sector: Over the next two to four years, the company intends to implement an extensive project pipeline, amounting to more than 1,000 MW, with a primary focus on photovoltaics.
PV projects to be implemented by mid-2022 with a total capacity of 900 MW
Among the first projects to be commissioned from this project pipeline are five photovoltaic farms, each with an output of approximately 180 MW, located in various regions across Poland. The contribution to the project pipeline from these plants is a total capacity of 900 MW which will come online by mid-2022.
Despite the lower solar potential in Poland compared to Southern Europe, falling costs and growing capacity make the Polish market attractive for photovoltaic projects:
As Gerhard Matzinger, CEO of RP Global, explains: “In opening up to low-cost, environmentally friendly technologies that offer a very competitive LCOE, the Polish government is creating an attractive market, even if Poland might not be the first country you think of as an attractive location for incident solar radiation”.
