The Danish green energy company European Energy officially opened its Pomerania wind portfolio in the northwestern part of Poland.
“Poland is a very interesting country for European Energy,” said Jens-Peter Zink, deputy CEO of European Energy, after attending the opening ceremony of the wind farm portfolio. “It has the potential to become a major hub for renewable energy in Europe. We want to be a part of that journey in Poland. We hope to also contribute to the development of new Power-to-X technology in Poland, creating e-fuels from using electricity. In this area, European Energy is one of the leading companies in the world to produce green hydrogen and e-methanol.”
The total wind park has a 44.7 megawatts (MW) total capacity and represents a 73.15 million euros total investment.
“We would like to have it a priority to build up renewable energy capacity, while at the same time being open for the windfall taxation,” added Olga Sypula, country manager of European Energy in Poland. “However, we would expect the relevant regulatory framework and reliable legislation from the Polish policymakers to give the right signals for investors for long-term and serious cooperation. For us, this is more than just a business and for sure not just about electricity, but energy security and independence as well as a healthy and peaceful environment. European Energy would be more than happy to provide our support to the Polish government for the development of the regulatory framework.”
