Gaz-System and its Danish counterpart signed a memorandum of cooperation for the continuity of gas supplies through the Baltic Pipe and the development of biomethane and hydrogen.

“Gaz-System is facing a new strategic opening. We want to be active in the field of hydrogen and biomethane, as well as develop international cooperation in the region, which is why today we signed a memorandum of cooperation with,” said the president of Gaz-System Marcin Chludziński.

Poland’s Minister of Climate and Environment Anna Moskwa spoke at the Offshore Wind Conference in Copenhagen, where for the first time there was a Polish stand. She also opened a seminar on the potential of cooperation in the supply chain for offshore wind energy with the participation of representatives of Poland, Denmark and Norway.

“Poland, together with partners such as Denmark and Norway, is taking initiatives to develop offshore in our region, while accelerating the energy transition. The Baltic Sea creates excellent conditions for such offshore development, and Poland, together with our Danish and Norwegian partners, is systematically trying to increase investments in this area,” the minister said. She discussed cooperation with Denmark with her counterpart, Minister of Climate, Energy and Municipal Economy Lars Aagaard. Poland still does not have an offshore installation port, while Denmark and Norway do.

One of the most recent examples of fruitful cooperation between the countries of the Baltic Sea region is the Declaration of the Energy Ministers from Marienborg, on the basis of which Poland and Denmark, together with other Baltic States, declared the efficient expansion of offshore wind power plants. The ambition is to have 19.6 GW of capacity in offshore wind by 2030. Minister Anna Moskwa also stressed that Denmark was a stable and reliable partner in increasing energy security not only in Poland, but also in the entire Central European region.
