Poland’s PGE plans 3.5 GW capacity in offshore wind by 2030

Poland’s PGE aims to be a leader in the offshore energy at the Baltic Sea with a plan to build 3.5 GW by 2030.

Poland, which generates more than 70 per cent of its electricity from coal, is under European Union pressure to reduce carbon emissions and the government hopes the planned Baltic wind farms, followed by a nuclear power station, will help. Poland expects to have its first wind farm production in 2025. It sees the total offshore wind capacity at 10 GW by 2040, with investment seen at around 120 billion zlotys ($30.99 billion).
