Uniper grows in the Polish renewables market

Uniper has signed a share purchase agreement with local project developer Photon Energy Group for the acquisition of a photovoltaic project with a capacity of 20.4 megawatts (MW). The closing is expected by the end of 2024, after achieving e.g. ready-to-build status.

The project is located in the northeastern part of Poland, in the province of Wysokie Mazowieckie, in the municipality of Szepietewo.

Our project pipeline in Poland is growing. Our goal is to reach a project pipeline of around one gigawatt (GW) in Poland in the medium to long term.

Pawel Tarczewski, Head of Solar & Wind Development Poland, Uniper Renewables

Uniper’s strategy is focused on driving the transformation of the energy industry through flexible, balanced and bespoke forms of energy generation.

To this end, the company is transforming its own power plants, facilities and investing in flexible and secure power generation assets. In total, approximately €8 billion is to be invested in growth and transformation between 2023 and 2030. This includes investments in solar and wind power plants, where significant growth is targeted. In 2030, Uniper aims to use more than 80 percent of its installed power plant capacity for CO2-free electricity production. Uniper will end electricity production from coal by 2029 at the latest.

Overall, Uniper aims to develop ten gigawatts of onshore wind and solar PV farms across key European markets, including Germany, France, UK, Italy, Sweden, Hungary, and Poland, by 2030, to ready to build status. Additionally, Uniper is committed to bringing three GW of renewables to investment maturity by 2025.
