Poland announces 100 MW solar auction

The government of Poland has announced auctions for 100 MW of electricity from renewable energy sources. They will be conducted through the Internet Auction Platform which will be shared with users at the beginning of December 2016.

According to the current legislation, there are four types of auctions to be held in 2016:

  1. for exisisting agricultural biogas installations with installed capacity of no more than 1 MW,
  2. for exisisting agricultural biogas installations with installed capacity of more than 1 MW,
  3. for new installations, so called “others”, especially photovoltaics, wind energy installations, certain hydroplants of installed capacity smaller or equal 1 MW,
  4. for exisisting installations with installed capacity of no more than 1 MW which meet the criterion of the installed capacity above 3504 MWh/MW/year and emissivity of no greater 100 kg/MWh (in particular certain hydroplants).

On 27th October, Polish Ministry of Energy confirmed auctions for PV to be announced in 2016. The Ministry assumed that under the planned auctions PV installations of 100 MW installed power will emerge. According to sources, almost all projects are scheduled to be installed by the summer of 2017.
