Uniper and Poland-based project developer WAP Energia entered a development partnership for an onshore wind power portfolio in Poland. The partnership covers six separate early-stage onshore wind projects with a target of up to 600 megawatt (MW) total capacity. Uniper will have full control over the development progress and costs of these projects.

The projects are spread across the Western part of Poland and will contribute to Uniper’s target to develop ten Gigawatt (GW) of renewable energy projects to ready-to-build status by 2030.

Jörg Lennertz, Uniper Renewables, CEO“Poland is experiencing rapid growth in renewable energy generation and is one of our core markets to develop renewables. As part of our strategic vision, our Uniper team in Poland together with local partners is expanding the pipeline in wind and photovoltaic in the Polish market to Gigawatt scale. Next to co-development partnerships we are expanding our own origination and greenfield development capacities.”
Jörg Lennertz, Uniper Renewables, CEO

Uniper’s strategy is focused on driving the transformation of the energy industry through flexible, balanced and bespoke forms of energy generation.

To this end, the company is transforming its own power plants, facilities and investing in flexible and secure power generation assets. In total, approximately €8 billion is to be invested in green growth and transformation between 2023 and 2030. This includes investments in solar and wind power plants, where significant growth is targeted. In 2030, Uniper aims to use more than 80 percent of its installed power plant capacity for CO2-free electricity production.

Overall, Uniper aims to develop ten gigawatts of onshore wind and solar PV farms across key European markets, including Germany, France, UK, Italy, Sweden, Hungary, and Poland, by 2030, to ready to build status.

Additionally, Uniper is committed to bringing three GW of renewables to investment maturity by 2026.
