Poland must more than double its renewable electricity targets – report

Current targets for the renewable energy share in Poland’s power mix are inadequate, says Polish think tank the Instrat Foundation in a new report.

By Energy Monitor Staff

Poland must increase its target for the share of renewable energy in its power mix to 71% by 2030, from an existing value of 32%, says a report from Warsaw-based think tank the Instrat Foundation.

Battery energy storage will be the key to energy transition – find out how

The market for battery energy storage is estimated to grow to $10.84bn in 2026. The fall in battery technology prices and the increasing need for grid stability are just two reasons GlobalData have predicted for this growth, with the integration of renewable power holding significant sway over the power market. Over the last decade, various new digital and smart technologies have been integrated, with countries aggressively promoting the modernization of grids, enhancing the grids’ capability to meet present and future requirements. As part of the effort, batteries are being deployed for a wide range of uses. A few such uses include aiding smart grids, integrating renewables, and creating responsive electricity markets. Read this report for expert insights into:
  • Market size and growth
  • Key drivers and restraints
  • Regional trends
  • The impact of the commodity price increase on the battery prices

The European Commission expects the share of renewable energy in electricity production to amount to 68% by 2030. Poland’s existing target, outlined in its energy strategy for 2040, falls far short of  this figure, the report states.

The report suggests a renewable electricity share of 71% is achievable for Poland, through the deployment of 44GW of onshore wind capacity, 31GW of offshore wind capacity, and 79GW of rooftop and ground-mounted solar PV.

With this renewable capacity, Poland could achieve a 65% reduction in CO2 emissions in the power sector by 2030, compared with a 2015 baseline.

The report calls for the Polish government to unblock the development of new onshore wind farms, speed up the construction of offshore wind farms and create a system of incentives for the development of energy storage.
