Poland’s Solar Photovoltaic Market Explodes, and Traditional Coal Industry is Under Threat

Recently, the unions of PGG, Poland ’s largest coal group, warned that if the government does not provide help, the coal industry will collapse due to falling demand. Poland relies heavily on coal-fired power generation and is the only EU member state that has not committed to zero carbon emissions by 2050. But in the face of increasing pressure from the EU to reduce emissions, Poland began to encourage investment in solar and offshore wind farms. The increase in the share of clean energy in power generation, the decline in power demand after the epidemic is closed to the city, and coal imports have exacerbated problems in the coal industry.

The Polish government previously stated that the installed capacity of solar photovoltaics will reach 10.2GW in 2030 and 20.2GW in 2040. The Polish government also supports industrial and commercial and large-scale power plant projects through the renewable energy auction system. The new government regulations allow owners of solar photovoltaic systems of more than 50 kW to sell excess power. Growth in the industrial and commercial field will be particularly strong. At the same time, the promotion of rooftop solar photovoltaic incentives and corporate net measurement policies has stimulated the potential of the solar photovoltaic market. In 2019, solar power generation in Poland has risen sharply.

On the other hand, due to the increase in the price of carbon dioxide certificates, the impact of the increase in the price of European carbon dioxide emission quotas will seriously affect Poland ’s electricity prices, and coal is the most intensive energy source for carbon dioxide. Great power to promote the development of clean energy in Poland.

According to SolarPower Europe data, in 2019 Poland ranked fifth in the number of new photovoltaic installations among European countries, and it is only 300MW less than the fourth place in France. It is also unknown that it exceeds France. In early 2020, Bloomberg predicted that Poland will be one of the top ten global solar photovoltaic markets this year.
