The Renewable Energy Association, the Polish Wind Energy Association and the Polish Chamber of Commerce for Renewable and Distributed Energy distributed an appeal to the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, in which they draw attention to administrative barriers which must be removed to unlock the investment potential of the onshore wind energy sector.

In accordance with the common position, in order to unblock the development potential of this sector as soon as possible, industry organizations have submitted a postulate to urgently modify the Act of 20 May 2016 on investments in wind farms, consisting in abolishing the distance criterion “10H” and returning to the possibility of locating projects based on a thorough assessment of the environmental impact of the investment. The above would allow to start the implementation of new projects as part of several years of investment cycles, using modern and environmentally friendly technologies, constituting investment activities undertaken despite the coming difficult market conditions.

The investments indicated are certainly a development impulse necessary during the economic slowdown, while at the same time they offer the cheapest energy, so much needed by Polish enterprises, which will be under exceptional cost pressure in the coming years.
