According to expert forecasts, the installed capacity of photovoltaics in Poland will increase to about 7 GW by the end of the year, and may even exceed this level. This is close to the value forecasted in the Polish Energy Policy for … 2030. Everything indicates that in 2022 there will be another increase in solar capacity, bringing us closer to the threshold of 10 GW.
In Poland’s Energy Policy until 2040, a document adopted by the government at the beginning of 2021, it is expected that the installed capacity of photovoltaics will reach less than 5 GW only in 2025, and this has already happened in June 2021. In turn, the forecast for 2030 says about less than 7.3 GW and will not stand the test of time either.
The Institute for Renewable Energy (IEO) predicted that the installed capacity of photovoltaics in Poland may exceed 6 GW at the end of 2021, but as you can see, it happened earlier.
– We did not anticipate then that there would be so much pressure on the increase in energy prices, as it happened in Q3, or that the decision to end the current, the so-called the discount system of support for prosumers will cause such a big stir on the market. These two factors significantly accelerated the development of micro-installations – adds Grzegorz Wiśniewski.
