Development forecasts and planned investments
Price from: 1700€
This publication presents the results of a recent study of construction market activity related to facilities that use wind, solar, water, biomass and biogas - renewable fuels - to produce electrical power for sale and use in Poland.
This report supplies analysis of each segment according to fuel source and enlightens readers as to established and emerging market trends. It analyses Poland’s planned RES act and describes the potential effects of regulations on companies involved in the generation of power using renewable resources.
This report covers current market issues and planned investments…
- It provides evaluations and descriptions of conditions in all key market segments - wind power, hydroelectric power, biomass and photovoltaics
- It presents data describing the size (MW) and value (PLN bn) of the entire renewable energy construction market in Poland
- It discusses obstacles to planned investments and percentage of those successfully finalised
- It names specific locations in Poland that contain the highest investments in renewable energy generation
- It examines new industry regulations and estimates their effects on planned renewable energy investments in Poland.

Gain a clearer understanding of the market for power generation construction projects in Poland when you read about:
- The possibilities for market growth among companies generating power using wind, hydroelectric biomass and photovoltaic sources
- Investment strategies of leading companies in this market, including details on planned investments and likelihood of completion.
Did you know...
- The construction of a wind power object with a capacity of 1 MW will be an expense of around PLN 6-7m, of which nearly 80% is related to the purchase of a wind turbine.
- There are no offshore objects in Poland yet, despite years of preparation. The estimated date for the creation of the first offshore wind farms is currently 2020.
- It is estimated that 51 out of 55 Polish baseload power are currently licensed for co-firing of biomass.
- At present, small and medium-sized enterprises are suffering the most, unable to wait as long for a new law on renewable energy, while large companies are gaining.
- Nearly 85% of installations in Poland are working based on biogas from landfills or wastewater treatment plants.
- Potential development of agricultural biogas and micro-biogas plants in Poland ranges from 3,000 to as much as 4,000 MW.

Extract from this report
- The rapid growth of the RES segment in Poland was driven by a wide range of facilities and funding programmes. Construction costs and other related expenses are frequently covered with state funds disbursed by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOSiGW) and EU funds. Under one of the numerous programmes supporting RES, the EU provided funds sufficient to build renewable energy resources worth PLN 4.4bn (€1.1bn).
Poland is about to develop a new legal framework for the operation of RES systems in the country. There are plans to allocate the funds to specific projects in a more planned manner while gradually withdrawing the funding from the market.
Market commentary by expert
The most important factor that is likely to impact the shape of the RES market in Poland will be the currently developed law on renewable energy sources. In the coming months there is a chance that with the development and enactment of new regulations, some of the suspended investments into renewable energy may return to the implementation stage.
