Uniper Partners on 600 MW Onshore Wind Portfolio in Poland

Uniper has entered a development partnership with Poland-based WAP Energia to create an onshore wind power portfolio in Poland. This partnership encompasses six early-stage projects with a combined target capacity of up to 600 megawatts (MW). Uniper will oversee the development progress and manage costs for these projects.

These projects, located in the western part of Poland, will help Uniper achieve its goal of developing 10 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy projects to ready-to-build status by 2030. Poland, experiencing rapid growth in renewable energy, is a key market for Uniper. The company, alongside local partners, is expanding its wind and photovoltaic project pipeline to a gigawatt scale. Uniper is enhancing its co-development partnerships and its own greenfield development capabilities in the region.

Jörg Lennertz, CEO of Uniper Renewables, highlighted the company’s strategy to transform the energy industry with flexible, balanced, and customized energy generation. This transformation includes converting Uniper’s power plants and facilities and investing in flexible and secure power generation assets. Between 2023 and 2030, Uniper plans to invest approximately €8 billion in green growth and transformation, with significant investments in solar and wind power plants. By 2030, Uniper aims for over 80 percent of its installed power plant capacity to produce CO2-free electricity.

Uniper’s overall objective is to develop 10 GW of onshore wind and solar PV farms in key European markets, including Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Sweden, Hungary, and Poland, by 2030, to ready-to-build status. Additionally, Uniper aims to bring 3 GW of renewables to investment maturity by 2026.
