The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has invested, so far, more than EUR 1.1 billion in renewable energy generation in Poland, the majority of which is in windpower plants, EBRD has said.
Developed by Opole firm Panel Wiatrowy, the panel is comprised of a system of vertical turbines which effectively transform low wind speeds of 1-10 metres per second, the speeds most commonly found in Europe for 80 percent of the year, into electrical energy.
A company belonging to Spanish renewable energy group Ibereolica will build a wind farm in Pomorskie province, northern Poland, the group's second investment in recent months.
A windy start to the week resulted in Polish wind farms generating a record amount of energy, giving Poland third place in Europe in terms of the volume of wind energy production, writes the Rzeczpospolita newspaper.

The government would like to conclude work on the legislative correction to the so-called distance act, which limits the development of Poland's onshore wind energy, by the end of this year, Deputy PM and Development Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz said on Friday.
The Wind Panel was created to be the next generation of onshore wind turbine, going beyond current technologies available on the market for capturing wind energy.
The production of electricity in Poland based on the burning of coal grew in March 2020 to 50.21 percent from 46.79 in March 2019, according to data from state owned transmission system operator PSE.
The European Commission (EC) on Tuesday approved PLN 232 million (EUR 54 million) in EU funds to support the construction of a power transmission line between Gdansk and Slupsk, northern Poland. The total cost of the investment is PLN 1 billion (EUR 232.5 million).
The amount of wind-generated electricity is on the rise, and is expected to keep on growing.
