BalticWind.EU Country Report POLAND / Q3 2023


Dear Readers,

We are pleased to present you with another in a series of reports summarizing the Polish offshore wind market. In the third quarter of 2023, the topic of energy continued to be strongly linked to initiatives to accelerate decarbonization and the development of RES projects to strengthen energy security – European Union countries’ response to Russia’s war in Ukraine. The next step will be the so-called “Wind Package” announced this September by Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission. The package’s goals match the aim of accelerating the energy transition in EU countries, including by speeding up permitting, improving auction systems in member states and focusing on skills, access to financing and stable supply chains. In the report you will find industry reactions to the initiative.

In this publication, we continue to present information on the development of offshore wind farm projects in Poland under Phase I. We recommend paying special attention to information about another Supplier Day for the BC-Wind project, which we had the pleasure of organizing for Ocean Winds. The very high interest in the event, held in Gdansk, showed how important of a role a dialogue with potential suppliers plays. It effectively contributes to building the local supply chain and strengthening competencies.

In the following section, we take a closer look at the most important developments that affect the offshore wind energy sector. In this, we point out administrative decisions related to location settlements within the framework of Phase II of the Polish offshore.
