European Commission approves Polish RES support scheme
Today, the European Commission issued a long-awaited decision approving, under EU State rules, a Polish renewable energy scheme with a total estimated budget of PLN 40 billion.
The scheme will grant State support to producers of electricity from RES – small installations (capacity of up to 500kW) will benefit from a feed-in tariff, whereas larger installations shall take part in competitive auctions and will receive a premium on top of the market price of electricity.
“We hope that in light of the Commission’s decision, an amendment to the RES Act will be quickly enacted by the Parliament” – said Dominik Strzałkowski, attorney at law and Partner in the Energy and Natural Recources.
We will soon inform about the details of the decision – once it is officially published.
