Better Energy is at the forefront of Poland’s transition away from fossil fuels following the grid-connection of its 28 MW Krapkowice solar park. Krapkowice, along with the Helenowo, Nidzica, Polanow and Postomino solar parks, are now delivering renewable energy to the Polish grid. The park, Better Energy’s first in Southern Poland, results from proactive and consistent engagement with stakeholders, including landowners, neighbours and local authorities.
“It is a great achievement to grid-connect our fifth solar park overall and, ultimately, increase the supply of renewable energy in Poland,” says Lukasz Witkowski, Managing Director of Better Energy Poland. “Our approach to stakeholder relations continues to be one of the most important factors in bringing these solar parks to fruition.”
Dedicated to driving the Polish green transition
Better Energy owns and operates five large-scale solar parks across Poland, with a total of 236 MW connected to the grid. The commissioning of all its solar parks stems from positive collaboration with local governments and grid operators. To offtake the green energy generated from the parks, Better Energy has signed Power Purchase Agreements with companies operating in Poland, including Statkraft, Tom’s Group and Faerch Group.
“Following the grid-connection of the Krapkowice solar park, Better Energy has solidified its position as one of Poland’s largest solar energy producers,” continues Lukasz Witkowski. “We will continue to work closely with all our partners to explore opportunities to increase our impact in Poland and deliver the green energy required to propel its economy.”
Poland harnesses solar as a base for future growth
Poland has benefitted from strong growth in solar capacity to drive its transition away from fossil fuels. Solar capacity increased to over 12 GW at the end of Q3 2023, making Poland one of Europe’s leaders in PV installations in the previous year. The country’s energy approach also foresees investments in the electricity grid and infrastructure. Better Energy entered the Polish market in 2018 and continues to support the significant strides the country has made in greening its energy mix.
