Successful end of the year 2021 and strong way ahead into 2022 for VSB Poland: In the Polish energy regulator’s auction for renewable energies in December 2021, the project developer secured the largest awarded volume of this bidding round with 164.8 MW.

In the second government auction in 2021, the VSB Group secured two wind energy projects equivalent to 123.2 MW and 41.6 MW each. Both bids for a tenor of 15 years managed to secure high prices. They are located in the voivodeships of Wielkopolska and Silesia. The goal is to have the sites up and running by 2025. Together with the Baranów-Rychtal wind farm currently under construction, the company has already secured over 200 MW in the 2020 and 2021 auctions.

“Our successful participation in these auctions shows that we are on the right track as a partner and pacesetter in the Polish wind market. A great success for a dedicated team here in Poland and at the headquarters in Germany,” said Hubert Kowalski, Managing Director of VSB Energie Odnawialne Polska sp. z o.o.
