Institute for Renewable Energy (IEO) in cooperation with an international consortium is starting a project called ComBioTES concerning the demonstration in Poland, France, Denmark and China of compact heat storage for buildings using RES-based electro-heating. Buildings belonging to prosumers are considered, as well as those using dynamic tariffs for green electricity or heat purchased from the grid. The project is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, coordinated by the Research Centre for Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies (CEA) of Grenoble, France.

The Institute of Renewable Energy begins work on the next edition of the report Photovoltaic Market in Poland 2022. This year, it will be the 10th anniversary edition. The report will once again be based on market research conducted by the Institute among key representatives of the PV industry, its own analyses and external data, e.g. from the Energy Regulatory Office (URE), Polish Transmission Grid Operator (Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne) and cross-sectional international reports.

The Institute for Renewable Energy (IEO) is leading the project "Transition of Georgian regions and communities towards a sustainable energy future" - PV for Georgian Cities. The project is sponsored by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and is being implemented in agreement with the Government of Georgia, with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Republic of Poland (MSZ) and Ministry of Economic Development and Technology (MRiT). The aim of the project is to promote the use of solar energy and to implement photovoltaic (PV) technology in five Georgian cities.

Cumulated power installed in photovoltaics in Poland

According to the data of Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE), the installed power in photovoltaics at the end of 2020 was 3,935.74 MW. This means an increase of 2,463 MW year on year. That is, the installed power in photovoltaics increased by 200% during the year. The market structure remains unchanged - 75% are micro-installations, and PV farms 21%. However, according to IEO forecasts, a change in the market structure will start from this year and solar farms will constitute an increasing percentage of the total installed power.

Based on the database of photovoltaic and wind companies "RES Auctions Winners 2016-2020"

In Poland the market of solar farms up to 1 MW is developing rapidly thanks to the polish auction system. Not surprisingly, competition in the "small basket" for wind and photovoltaic projects up to 1 MW was fierce. According to the announcement of Energy Regulatory Office, 590 producers joined the auction with a total of 1618 bids, and all the bids submitted were from photovoltaic only. The auction was resolved in favor of 235 producers, which submitted a total of 747 bids with the lowest price. The minimum energy price was 222.87 PLN/MWh - for comparison, in 2019 the minimum price was 269 PLN/MWh. On the other hand, the maximum price at which energy was auctioned in 2020 was 268.88 PLN/MWh - in 2019 it was 327 PLN/MWh. This shows that the high competition and the decrease in the prices of photovoltaic modules significantly affect the decrease in the auction prices.

A well-thought-out and effective solutions for the renewable energy market.
