The population of Poland was 37.95 million and the current gross domestic product (GDP) was $469.51 billion as of 2016. Poland wind power market value, which was USD XXX billion in 2016, is expected to grow to USD XXX billion in 2017, at a CAGR of XXX percent. The highest wind velocities in Poland are found along the Baltic coastal region (5-6 m/s annual average wind speed at 30 m above ground level) and in northern and central areas (4.0-5.5 m/s). The Polish Wind Energy Association has estimated that the potential for wind energy capacity amounts to 10-13 GW. However, there is land available for the installation of 19-23 GW but this would prove problematical for the Polish transmission grid as it exists at the present time.
Reforms introduced by the Renewable Energy Sources Act 2015 (the ‘RES Act’), which came into force 1 July 2016 marked a significant step forward, however, subsequent amendments to the RES Act have illustrated how the Polish government is in a difficult position of striking a balance between developing RES for energy diversification and rescuing its coal industry. Poland has Europe's largest hard coal reserves and last year thermal coal and lignite accounted for 84% of the country's electricity generation. The Auction System (which is won by the bidder who offers electricity at the lowest price) replaces the previous renewable energy investment incentive system, under which installations were required to obtain tradable/transferable certificates of origin from RES (‘Green Certificates’) issued by the President of the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) and to sell property rights arising from those Green Certificates (the ‘Green Certificate System’).
The country’s main energy strategy is to reduce the coal dependency by increasing the energy efficiency, increased use of renewable resources, nuclear sources, and connecting to the European power infrastructure.
