Poland is Europe’s biggest energy market where the photovoltaics sector is not present, yet. In 2013 new energy laws are going to be endorsed, which means Poland is going to turn into one of the strongest European markets in the solar sector, too.

Beginning of October the Ministry of Economy published the recent draft of the Renewable Energy Sources Act. As far as photovoltaics is concerned, a feed-in tariff is not yet fixed, but will be probaply higher than in Germany and Italy.

Whereas the Polish government expects 600 Megawatt of PV plants to be installed by 2020, many experts expect the market to speed up rapidly. Currently only 1.3 Megawatt PV plants are installed.

Private households in Poland pay lower electricity prices than companies, so the consumer awareness regarding renewable energies is quite low. But retail sellers are looking for alternative solution because of their high electricity prices. Ikea for example is buying wind park projects and also Tesco and the Metro Group are looking for renewable energy projects too.
