RP Global targets Poland for solar business growth

Core Solar

RP Global is working on a pipeline of projects in Poland to deliver more than 1,000 MW in the next two to four years. The first projects to be commissioned from this pipeline by mid-2022 include five Solar PV parks of approximately 180 MW each, located in different regions of Poland.

Wojciech Glocko, RP Global’s new managing director for development in Poland, said: “The renewable energy market in Poland is growing fast and RP Global as a well-established player in the market will play an important role in Poland’s decarbonization.”

RP Global has been present in Poland for over 15 years, having developed and built five wind farms in the country. The company owns and operates a 104 MW wind farm as part of a 50:50 joint venture with the Marguerite Fund, and it is well positioned to reinvest in wind development activities as well as in Poland’s newly booming PV market.

Working in close cooperation with local developers and benefiting from its existing assets and resources in Poland, RP Global’s local development team will ensure the successful completion the 1GW portfolio of planned projects.

“The opening up of the Polish government for low cost, environmentally friendly technologies, providing highly competitive LCOE, makes for an attractive market, even if Poland may not be the first country that comes to mind when thinking of attractive solar radiation,” said RP Global CEO Gerhard Matzinger.
