On 29 July, wpd Polska was able to welcome high-ranking visitors to the “Jarocin Kozmin” and “Kozmin Pilot” wind farms: Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister and Development Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz had accepted the invitation of the Polish Wind Energy Association PSEW, which had organized an information event on the status of wind energy development in the country together with wpd Polska. A clear and important sign of the Polish government’s commitment to wind energy.

The visit of a government representative to a foreign investor also underlines the importance of wpd as an important player in the Polish market for renewable energies. Jadwiga Emilewicz was impressed by the progress of the construction measures in the “Jarocin Kozmin” project, which are now on the home stretch. During an inspection tour of the neighbouring wind farm “Kozmin Pilot”, which has been in operation since 2014, those present experienced an unexpected highlight: The Deputy Prime Minister insisted on being rappelled from the nacelle of one of the turbines by the team of wpd windmanager Polska as part of the demonstration of an evacuation measure.

In a concluding press conference, Emilewicz reported on the initiated amendment of the so-called “Windpower Investment Act”, which has almost brought the development of wind energy to a standstill since its entry into force in July 2016 with the 10-H distance rule – which defines ten times the height of the turbine as the minimum distance to residential buildings. wpd Polska, as an active member of the PSEW, has campaigned here from the very beginning for a change in the law and the reduction of the minimum distances.

A commitment that shows success: The proposals have now been incorporated into an amendment to the law, which, if adopted, can allow for a reduction in distances if a development plan, an environmental impact assessment and local acceptance are in place. “If the liberalization of the legislation can be implemented as planned by the end of the year, the blockade of important wind energy projects in Poland could be largely resolved in 2021,” Agnieszka Plaska, Managing Director at wpd Polska, underlines the importance of the commitment on the political side.

The wind energy sector is already registering that the event at the two wpd wind farms and the action of the Deputy Prime Minister have brought additional momentum to the exchange of information on the development of Polish wind energy. There is great hope that the way will now be cleared for new important projects.
