    PGE plans to build nearly 100 MW of new RES capacity in the Podkarpacie region

    PGE Energia Odnawialna, a PGE Capital Group company, intends to launch installations from renewable sources with a total capacity of nearly 100 MW on the premises of the Strategic Investment Park Euro-Park Stalowa Wola. To this end, an agreement has been signed with the City of Stalowa Wola and the Euro-Park Stalowa Wola company from the Industrial Development Agency Group. The green energy produced in the new installations will be used for the needs of the city and the companies operating on the premises of the Investment Park and the Tarnobrzeg Special Economic Zone.

    “Today’s agreement is another example of model cooperation between the local government and PGE. At the beginning of the year, we started the construction of the largest grid connection in our history for the Strategic Investment Park Euro-Park Stalowa Wola, and now we are planning joint investments in renewable energy sources. We intend to set up wind and photovoltaic energy farms here with a total capacity of nearly 100 MW and energy storage facilities with a capacity of up to 30 MWh. All this will result in more green energy being fed into the grid, and a modern distribution network will ensure more reliable supplies of cheaper energy for our customers,”

    Wojciech Dąbrowski, President of the Management Board of PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna, says.

    According to preliminary assumptions, the construction of the first installations may start as early as next year. The PGE Group will have at its disposal over 70 hectares of land on which solar power plants with a total capacity of 70 MW can be launched. In addition, the construction of 7 wind turbines of up to 4 MW each, a RES service centre and energy storage facilities with a capacity of up to 30 MWh.

    “With plans to launch RES investments on the premises of the Strategic Investment Park Euro-Park Stalowa Wola, we are continuing our investment activities in the region. The work to build one of Poland’s largest PV Jeziórko photovoltaic farms is underway in the nearby municipality of Grębów. It will reach a target capacity of 153 MW in 2024,”

    Marcin Karlikowski, President of the Management Board of PGE Energia Odnawialna, says.

    The Strategic Investment Park Euro-Park Stalowa Wola is an area of almost 1,000 hectares, which has been designated for industrial investments related to supporting the development and implementation of modern technologies in the field of energy, electromobility, transport, hydrogen technology, aviation, and the automotive industry.

    “Thanks to our cooperation with the PGE Group, we are creating in Stalowa Wola the most unique investment area in Europe. For our part, we offer very good grounds for business activities, availability of network utilities and electricity. In the near future, this electricity will come from renewable sources, from wind power plants and solar panels. In this way, our offer to investors will be even more competitive and comprehensive. I am convinced that this will translate into even greater interest in Stalowa Wola by large companies in the future,”

    Lucjusz Nadbereżny, Mayor of Stalowa Wola, says.

    The Tarnobrzeg Special Economic Zone was established in 1997. It covers 35 counties located in the Podkarpackie, Lubelskie and Mazowieckie voivodeships. 

    It aims to accelerate the economic activity of the region by, among other things, attracting investment, developing exports, and creating new jobs. In this area, the PGE Group is implementing one of the largest photovoltaic investments in Poland – the Jeziórko PV farm in the Grębów municipality. It will reach a target capacity of 153 MW in 2024.

    A member of the PGE Capital Group, PGE Energia Odnawialna is currently the largest producer of green energy in Poland. It has 20 wind farms, 29 hydroelectric power plants, 4 pumped storage power plants and 24 photovoltaic power plants. The total installed capacity of all facilities is 2433.1 MW.
