“The PGE Group is the undisputed leader of offshore wind energy in Poland. We implement the largest RES investments in the Baltic Sea in terms of generation capacity. Today, we received final decisions from the Ministry of Infrastructure regarding five permits that will enable the construction of further offshore wind farms in the future. The total potential capacity of wind farms planned for construction in new areas is approx. 3.9 GW. This is additional power in relation to PGE’s currently implemented projects. Implementation of plans and development of new areas in the coming years will mean that we will not only achieve, but even exceed our strategic goal of 6.5 GW of capacity from offshore sources assumed for 2040,” said Wojciech Dąbrowski, President of PGE, quoted in the release.

The total potential of offshore wind farms that can be built in all these areas exceeds 3.9 GW. Currently, the PGE Group is preparing to build offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea with a total capacity of 3.4 GW. Baltica 2 with a capacity of approx. 1.5 GW and Baltica 3 with a capacity of approx. 1 GW make up the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm, which is to start producing electricity later this decade. PGE is implementing this project in cooperation with Ørsted. Independently from the Baltica OWF, the PGE Group is preparing to build the Baltica 1 project with a capacity of approx. 0.9 GW. This wind farm is scheduled for commissioning after 2030, the information also states.

The PGE Group generates 41% of net electricity production in Poland, and its share in the heat market is 18%. The Group estimates its share in the renewable energy market at 10%. In a distribution area of approx. 123,000 sq. km2 PGE serves 5.5 million customers. Its market share in terms of the volume of distributed electricity is 25%, and sales to end users – 33%. The company has been listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange since 2009.
