The government of Poland and representatives of the offshore wind industry have entered into a letter of intent that outlines their future cooperation in the development of the particular sector.

The signatories of this letter have agreed to collaborate on the development of the Polish offshore wind market and have committed to meet regularly to discuss their progress.

 

“With this joint ‘Letter of Intent’ Polish government and industry send a strong sign to investors and markets - that they want lots of offshore wind too and are putting in place a regulatory framework to support it,” commented Giles Dickson, CEO of industry body WindEurope.

 

Poland targets having 3.8 GW of installed offshore wind capacity by the end of the decade and ultimately reach 28 GW by 2050. The government is expected to launch its first “Offshore Wind Act” later this year.

 

Examples of local offshore wind developments come from Polish power group PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna SA and Polenergia SA, which is partnering with Norway’s Equinor ASA . Earlier this month, Spanish power utility Iberdrola SA and Polish sector player Enea SA signed a letter of intent to jointly develop up to 3.3 GW in the Baltic Sea.
