German project developer Energiequelle GmbH has opened a new office in Poznan, Poland, in a move that marks its entry into the Polish wind and solar energy market where plans are being reviewed for over 1 GW of projects.
The company said on Tuesday its local personnel is assessing options for the acquisition and implementation of projects in Poland, with more than 30 proposals being under consideration. While solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies will be a major goal, schemes in the wind energy sector are also being explored.
Energiequelle’s plan is to pursue acquisitions and eventually focus on the development of its own projects. According to the statement, it is nearing the signing of contracts with some cooperation partners.
Commenting on the Polish market, the German firm’s managing director in Poland, Arkadius Sliwka, said: “We estimate that the potential of onshore wind power will exceed a total of 20 GW of installed capacity by 2030 due to the liberalisation of the 10H distance rule.”
In Europe, Energiequelle already has offices in Germany, France and Finland and a workforce of over 350 people. So far, it has put into operation 750 renewable power plants with a combined capacity of around 1.5 GW.
