Construction of wind farms in the Baltic Sea is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious and difficult challenges facing the Polish energy market. Meanwhile, it seems that the current legislation is not fully conducive to achieving this goal. WHY SHOULD THE OFFSHORE ACT BE MODIFIED?

There is no doubt that Poland is only at the very beginning of the development of offshore wind energy, which in turn REQUIRES AN ACTIVE POLICY, BASED ON FACILITIES FOR INVESTORS.

Meanwhile, more and more often representatives of the market raise objections both to the quality of regulations concerning construction of offshore wind farms, as well as to the government policy – e.g. as regards setting the maximum price.

For example, the Polish Wind Energy Association points to such problems as correlation of the support period with the duration of location permits; introduction of the claw-back mechanism or the obligation for the investor applying for support to establish collateral.
