Deputy Minister of Climate Ireneusz Zyska indicates that the act to regulate the development of offshore wind farms in Poland will go to the next inter-ministerial consultation on 6 July.
The act will be adopted by the end of the year. We are in constant contact with the European Commission, DG Energy, and we hope that public aid will be adopted as it is in the bill. I have reasons to say that on July 6 the draft will go back to inter-ministerial consultations – Deputy Minister of Climate Ireneusz Zyska emphasizes.
The Ministry of Climate envisages increasing the total capacity for which support will be granted to 5.9 GW from previously assumed 4.6 GW, which was enshrined in the Polish Energy Policy until 2040. This is the answer to projects that will appear on the market in the future.
In January this year, the Ministry of State Assets submitted for public consultation a draft law on the promotion of electricity generation in offshore wind farms. The project provides for a two-phase model of the support system. It will be based on a bilateral differential contract.
