GDF SUEZ continues to expand wind energy in Europe planning to develop 100 MW of projects in Romania and Poland. This movement underlines company’s intention to consolidate the proportion of renewable energy sources in its energy mix in Europe and achieve its target of 50% increase in its capacity by 2015.

In Romania, the company will develop 48MW, while in Poland it will build, following the Jarogniew-Moltowo (20 MW) and Wartkowo (30MW) wind farms inaugurated already in 2011, the Pagow facility which will double the Group's wind capacity in Poland. According to the Chairman and Chief executive Officer GDF SUEZ, Gérard Mestrallet, the development of these projects shows company’s desire to expand the market with the best of the Group’s expertise and technical synergies. GDF SUEZ has been present in Poland for 10 years and is the 5th largest power producer in the country. GDF SUEZ wholly owns the combined coal and biomass-fired Połaniec power plant (1800 MW).
