The coming years will be crucial for offshore wind development. How we use the potential of the Polish Baltic depends on the cooperation of all stakeholders, from investors to suppliers. Global offshore is accelerating, and Poland is not lagging behind. The most up-to-date topics and studies will be discussed at the forum during an event that has already become a permanent fixture on the wind industry calendar – the Offshore Wind Poland 2023 Conference.
Last year’s PWEA report estimated the potential of OWE at 33 GW. The report also identified 20 new areas in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea, including 18 in the exclusive economic zone and two in the territorial sea. If the total potential of the Baltic Sea is exploited, offshore wind power could meet as much as 57% of Poland’s total electricity demand, and local content could reach 65%, which undoubtedly represents an opportunity for the Polish economy.
Offshore wind energy is gaining steam….
Offshore Wind Poland is a unique meeting that will be attended by key players in the offshore wind energy sector. The event will bring together investors, contractors, service providers, industry associations and politicians making decisions on offshore wind farm development. Thanks to cooperation between government and business, Poland can become an offshore leader in the Baltic and an exporter of cheap and clean energy.
Poland’s Largest Offshore Wind Energy Conference features discussions, comments from industry experts and studies that point to specific directions and changes needed to be implemented in order for the offshore sector to develop dynamically in Poland. The assumed increase in the capacity of offshore wind farms from 5 to 12 GW, which will be built by 2030, is a landmark step towards the dynamic development of the new sector in Poland – although the industry knows very well that the potential of the Polish Baltic Sea is much greater! This year we will talk about what is needed to make the most of Poland’s potential, both in terms of energy production and the industrial and service potential of domestic companies.
Conference participants will learn the conclusions of the latest report by the Polish Wind Energy Association, which will identify legislative proposals to facilitate and expedite permitting processes for offshore. The industry’s demands based on foreign experience will help optimize Poland’s permitting system and unleash the wind projects waiting in the starting thresholds.
Take part in forum discussions on the future of Polish offshore wind farms and confront your position and ideas with the industry at thematic Roundtables.
