Session description

Recently, Europe has witnessed an acceleration in the pace of corporate sourcing of renewables. This trend, however, has been broadly concentrated in a few countries with others failing to take off.

Poland has seen its first power purchase agreements in 2018, supplied by both solar and wind energy. The competitive wholesale price of renewable energy has been the most significant drive pushing the renewable energy sourcing via corporate PPAs to gain more and more traction.

Corporate energy sourcing based on direct, long-term Power Purchase Agreements between industries and green energy producers is perceived as a way to enable the sustainable economic growth in Poland while decreasing dependency on the state’s subsidies in the coming years.

However, for this to continue evolving, significant policy adjustments will be needed.

Learning objectives

During this 1.5 hour session we will discuss about the economic and regulatory framework in Poland, as well as the recent achievements on both solar and wind fronts. National challenges and barriers will also be raised, putting together recommendations and solutions for a consistent, credible and feasible approach to accelerate corporate sourcing nationally and across borders.

Participants shall find out:

The session will be organized under the auspices of the RE-Source Poland Hub – a foundation established to foster the development of the Polish corporate PPAs market and to ensure the sustainability of energy supply towards a competitive industry.
