The hydrogen strategy to be adopted on August 10
“We are currently working on the second version of the hydrogen strategy. We received over 2,000 questions. On August 10, we will have an updated hydrogen strategy,” Jakub Kupecki, PhD, Eng., member of the team for the Development of the Renewable Energy Sources Industry and Benefits for the Polish Economy at the Ministry of Climate and Environment said.
“The gas industry is a tool to “boost” hydrogen, hydrogen will be based on the fossil fuel infrastructure. An investment cycle awaits us, and we are sailing in uncharted waters, we have to look at it in terms of making the installations green, and only in the longer term can we think about purely hydrogen technologies. Technology does not see the color of hydrogen, but the law makers do. We are looking for niches where we will be able to make investments profitable. We are currently working on the second version of the hydrogen strategy. Over 2,000 questions were received. On August 10, we will have an updated hydrogen strategy,” Kupecki explained.
PSE to spend PLN 4.5 billion on network development for offshore
Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE), the power transmission system operator, will allocate approximately PLN 4.5 billion until 2030 for the construction or modernization of transmission stations and lines in the Pomeranian Voivodeship. It is necessary to conduct these investments to distribute offshore energy across the country.
PSE estimates that by 2040, offshore wind farms will be able to supply the Polish power system with approximately 11 GW of capacity. This is the equivalent of about 20 percent of all of today’s capacity generation potential in Poland. Companies investing in offshore farms will be responsible for transmitting power from the wind turbines to land. PSE will distribute it to other parts of the country. PSE has already issued connection conditions for offshore wind farms with a total capacity of 8.4 GW. The first of them will start producing electricity as early as in 2026.
