Polish Offshore Wind Energy Worth €17.5 Billion by 2025: Poland could be adding €17.5 billion (PLN 73.8 billi...

Poland could be adding €17.5 billion (PLN 73.8 billion) to its economy by 2025 if it develops its offshore wind energy sector to a potential six gigawatts, a new report by Ernst & Young has revealed. The report, “offshore wind energy — analysis of benefits for the Polish economy and development determinants”, also said that the sector could potentially create 31.8 thousand new jobs from 2012-2025, mostly in the electro-engineering sector. Moreover, sectors badly affected by the economic crisis — maritime transport, shipbuilding and port industries — could gain five thousand new jobs by 2025, said the report. Currently the country’s offshore wind energy target is for 500 MW by 2020, but the potential is far higher, says Wojciech Cetnarski, President of the Polish Wind Energy Association (PWEA). The 500-MW target “seems underestimated.” “Last year’s amendments to the legisla...
