The RE-Source Poland Hub Foundation is the Polish platform for cooperation between the renewable energy producers and energy off-takers.
The Foundation’s mission is to support companies in Poland in building their business competitiveness on the basis of the emission-free, affordable electricity from renewables. The foundation activities are focused on creating a regulatory framework favourable for corporate renewable electricity sourcing in Poland, e.g. in the form of cPPAs.
The RE-Source Poland Hub was founded by the Polish Wind Energy Association in July 2019 to facilitiate the energy transition in Poland and works closely with the international RE-Source platform.
In a country where over 70 % of electricity is generated from coal the shift to green energy is not only a matter of environmental awareness. It is also about the business competitiveness. The growing cost of black energy due to the rising CO2 emissions price is becoming the key driver for companies to take advantage of the cheap and clean energy from wind and PV.
During the upcoming RE-Source event the RE-Source Poland Hub shall deliver an update on the cPPA market in Poland. Speakers will share insight into the contracts that were signed, the potential for further development and the barriers which hinder Poland’s industry’s green transition. Viewers will learn various perspectives of actors usually involved in signing a corporate power purchase agreement: of an industrial energy buyer, a renewable investor, an energy trading company – the one which actually facilitated the first Polish cPPA with physical delivery – and a representative of a European Bank with the strategic objective to support the corporate renewable sourcing market development.
First RE-Source Poland Conference, held in Warsaw on 4-5 February 2020, has shown that Poland’s industry can be the key driver for the country’s energy transition. Polish corporates, big and small, want to take advantage of the clean and economically affordable renewable electricity for the benefit of their business competetiveness. During the event they learned how to procure green energy in Poland and met potential suppliers.
Renewable investors are eager to meet the industrial demand and develop new PV and wind farms on the basis of various models of the corporate PPAs. The slowly but steadily increasing number of such transations on the Polish market, both for wind and PV installations, proves that market is about to grow in this direction.
The second RE-Source Poland Conference, to take place in the beginning of March 2021 – online – will be a great opportunity for renewable energy producers and off-takers to meet their potential business partners.
