Poland confirms plan for 8 GW offshore wind

After several years of standstill, Poland's government is opening up for onshore and offshore wind, where a minister sees the possibility of adding up to 10 GW ahead to 2035. He denies that the construction is connected to a Danish gas pipeline.

Nov.1, Poland launched a 1 GW onshore wind. The tender is not yet closed, but according to interest organization Windeurope, an average price of EUR 51 MWh is expected while bids as low as EUR 43 / MWh are registered.
