Better Energy expanding in Poland

Better Energy is expanding its Polish pipeline and expects to roll out gigawatts of solar energy capacity in the coming years.

Better Energy is already engaged in the Polish market with solutions that are commercially viable, scalable and integrable. With the construction of 10 MW in 2018 and an additional 30 MW under construction, Better Energy is now ready for expansion with large-scale solar energy projects in Poland.

Better Energy has already secured over 700 hectares of land and built up a substantial pipeline of projects totalling over 650 MW and has pioneered new ways for companies to go green. With subsidy-free power purchase agreements, Better Energy is ready to intensify activities in the Polish market.

A country of opportunities

In Poland, there is great demand for solar energy. The carbon-based fossil energy sources that have supplied the country with electricity for decades are becoming outdated and causing blackouts. With sun in the energy mix, there are many benefits to reap. Recent research shows that solar makes power prices decrease.

“We see great potential in the Polish market. Over the past years, solar prices have gone down every year. The scalability of our solutions allows us to push the agenda to build solar energy plants at market price without any governmental subsidies,” says Better Energy Director for Project Finance and Project Development, Christoffer Fruergaard Larsen.

Strong forecasts

The renewable energy landscape in Poland has shifted in the past couple of years, and the new direction is clear. The future of Poland is bright. The possibility of electricity consumption being clean, green and long-term at affordable prices is a lucrative opportunity that can be seized by corporations. Better Energy is on the market to accelerate growth and to help companies pave the way for a green future. 

“Solar is a competitive advantage in the green transition. Solar is affordable, scalable, and at the same time, easy to integrate and easy to customise. This makes a compelling case for change,” says Better Energy CEO Rasmus Lildholdt Kjær.
