The Polish Wind Energy Association is once again creating a Polish zone at an international trade fair, this time at the Wind Europe Annual Event in Copenhagen from 25-27 April. The PWEA zone will feature the biggest giants of the Polish energy transition market. The dominant theme of this year’s stand will be building a stable supply chain and cooperation with international contractors for wind power.
Rising electricity prices, the increasing urgency to protect the climate and reduce greenhouse gases have made the intensive development of renewable energy sources, including wind power, a global economic priority. With falling installation costs, RES investments have made green power a serious alternative to traditional, fossil fuel-based energy.
The Wind Europe conference in Copenhagen is one of the most important events for representatives of the wind power industry, during which countries, investors and sub-suppliers from all over Europe present themselves. There will therefore be no shortage of Polish accents in the zone organised by the Polish Wind Energy Association.
The Polish PWEA Pavilion opens up unlimited possibilities for B2B meetings for its partners. As part of the promotional stand, Polish entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to hold meetings with the most important Norwegian and Danish players in the industry.
This is the perfect place to build a contact base and establish new relationships and partnerships. Topics covered range from supply chains to permitting to networks and sustainability, finance and resource assessment. Meetings are held with input from across the sector, policy, NGOs and more. Stand partners this year include: PGE Baltica, Polenergia, Famur, Projmors, Vulcan and others.
For nearly 25 years PWEA has been building a strong position for Polish wind industry companies on the international stage and helping to present domestic companies as experts in their field. A Polish stand at a European event is not only reputational, but also an opportunity to establish real cooperation.
– The Polish zone at a high-profile international event is a great distinction for us. We are delighted that together with key Polish energy companies we can showcase the huge potential that lies within the Polish wind market. As a country, we have a lot to offer in terms of unlocked onshore investments and dynamically developing offshore technology. The great interest in the Polish Pavilion testifies to Poland’s growing role in the European transformation of the energy sector,” emphasises Janusz Gajowiecki, President of the Polish Wind Energy Association.
According to the new PEP2040 strategy presented by the Ministry of Climate and Environment, there will be a fourfold increase in RES capacity by 2040, which will guarantee a share of more than 50% in Poland’s electricity production. The announced installed capacity of offshore wind power is to be 5.9 GW in 2030 and 18 GW in 2040, and for onshore wind power 14 GW and 20 GW in 2030 and 2040 respectively.
During the three-day WindEurope Conference, a Polish-Danish-Norwegian seminar organised by PAIH in cooperation with PWEA will also take place, aimed at strengthening Polish-Danish and Polish-Norwegian cooperation in the offshore wind energy sector. Networking and an expert debate on the topic of building supply chains for OWE will be opened by Minister for Climate and Environment Anna Moskwa. Panellists and participants at the side event will be representatives of the largest Polish, Danish and Norwegian offshore companies.
