Implementation of the Polenergia Group Strategy for 2020-2024
The implementation of the Strategy is progressing without significant disruptions. The Group is currently building and developing onshore renewable energy projects with a total capacity of 267 MW. In addition, Polenergia’s development portfolio includes less advanced photovoltaic and wind projects with a total capacity of over 843 MW.
Works on the 121 MW WF Dębsk, which is the largest renewable energy investment in the history of Polenergia, are nearing the end. Foundations, manoeuvring areas and roads for all 55 turbines were completed. The construction of high voltage lines, medium voltage lines and a power substation have been completed. All turbines have been assembled and energized. The trial run of individual turbines is in progress. The construction of the farm should be completed in the fourth quarter of 2022.
The main construction works have been completed on the WF Kostomłoty with a capacity of 27 MW. Foundations, manoeuvring areas and roads for all 9 turbines were completed. The construction of high voltage lines, medium voltage lines and a power substation have been completed. All turbines have been assembled and energized. The trial run of individual turbines is in progress. The construction of the farm should be completed in the third quarter of this year.
The projects of WF Piekło with a capacity of 13 MW and WF Grabowo with a capacity of 44 MW are implemented according to the schedule.
In the third quarter of this year, Polenergia also plans to launch the Buk Photovoltaic Farms project with a total capacity of nearly 7 MWp. Two photovoltaic projects, PF Świebodzin I and PF Strzelino, with a total capacity of 56 MWp, are being prepared for construction, which were supported under the RES auction held in December 2021.
In the second quarter of 2022, Polenergia Fotowoltaika installed photovoltaic installations with a total capacity of over 12 MWp, while Polenergia Pompy Ciepła installed 149 heat pumps during that time. Polenergia Fotowoltaika sold the product Polenergia 360 based on cooperation with Polenergia Sprzedaż, which resulted in signing the first contracts for the supply and purchase of renewable and zero-emission energy.
The company OWF Bałtyk II submitted a notification application to the President of the Energy Regulatory Office aimed at requesting the President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection to issue an opinion on the project of individual support granted for the OWF Bałtyk II project and to issue – after the European Commission issues a decision on compliance with the internal market of public aid granted to the company – decision to change the first decision of the President of the ERO and determination of the price being the basis for covering the negative balance for the project.
The large-scale 100 MW project for the production and storage of hydrogen produced in the water electrolysis process with the participation of its own renewable energy submitted by Polenergia in the competition for projects in the area of hydrogen technologies and systems, after passing formal verification and assessment by the Minister of Development, Labour and Technology and the Minister of Climate and Environment, has been approved for further implementation and is on the path of obtaining notification from the European Commission. The Ministry of Climate and Environment, after approval of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection, submitted a project under the so-called RHATL wave (Regional Hubs and their Links) for notification to the European Commission. In addition, Elektrociepłownia Nowa Sarzyna is preparing to produce renewable hydrogen and co-firing natural gas with hydrogen, and actively participates in the creation and development of the Subcarpathian Hydrogen Valley. Two gas turbines in ENS with a capacity of 40 MW each were partially modernized at the end of 2021 and prepared for co-firing up to 10%. hydrogen with natural gas.
