Azerbaijan and Poland can invest in renewable energy together

Wind energy, biofuels or solar energy may be potential areas of cooperation between Poland and Azerbaijan – said Andrzej Fąfara from the press office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Azeri agency Trend.

– Poland has great potential for cooperation in the field of renewable energy sources and green technologies. Poland is successfully diversifying the supply of fossil fuels, and the share of renewable energy sources in our energy mix is ​​constantly growing – said Fąfara.

He also noted that companies should make economic decisions based on the profit perspective. Fąfara emphasized that Poland supports the construction of the Southern Gas Corridor from Azerbaijan through Georgia and Turkey to the European Union. Azerbaijan plans to generate 50 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2050.

Equinor praises the sector agreement and counts on the offshore act

One investor in offshore wind farms in Poland, the Norwegian Equinor, joined the letter of intent on cooperation in the development of offshore wind energy in this country signed by ministers and industry organizations. The Norwegians are also counting on the early adoption of the offshore law.

The Norwegians emphasize that the declaration, inspired by the British “Sector Deal” for offshore wind energy, contains strategic guidelines for the development of the offshore wind energy sector in Poland. – It sets the framework for close cooperation between the government and the offshore wind energy sector – emphasizes Polenergia’s partner on Polish wind projects.
