Poland's Industrial Development Agency (ARP) has signed a letter of intent with US company General Electric in a bid to boost the country's competence in conventional and new renewable energy generation, ARP said in a news release on Friday.

Notably, the co-operation would concern the development of Polish offshore wind farms and photovoltaic projects, the agency added.

The two partners also plan to make use of information and communication technologies (ICT) to secure the operation of industrial infrastructure.

"The offshore industry is a strategic sector for the Polish economy, not only in the context of the European Green Deal and the growing role of renewable energy sources, but also due to domestic manufacturing capacity," ARP President Cezariusz Lesisz was quoted as saying in the agency's press release.

The US giant General Electric has experience in designing and manufacturing equipment for the renewable energy sector and also operates in the ICT sector.

ARP supervises a number of companies operating in a range of sectors that are strategic for the country, including renewable energy.
