The largest photovoltaic power plant in Central and Eastern Europe will be built in Pomerania. The planned photovoltaic power plant will be located in Zwartów and it will have an installed capacity of 203 MW cover. With this size it will be the largest power plant in Central and Eastern Europe.
The power plant will have an annual production of 230 GWh and according to estimated it will contribute to the saving of 5 millon tonnes of CO2 reduction over its lifespan of 30 years, it is able to reduce CO2 emissions by 5 million tonnes.
The project is implemented by the Respect Energy in cooperation with the German concern Goldbeck Solar. According to the company, the value of the power plant after construction will amount to approx. EUR 200 million and it will cover an area of approximately 300 ha. This is not the only project of the consortium, the companies plan to build photovoltaic power plants with a total capacity of 350 MW per year.
According to the analysis “How to fill the carbon gap” of the Forum Energy think tank, Poland by 2030 might have an installed solar capacityof 12.5–14.5 GW, an additional 10.1–11.2 GW in onshore wind energy, and 5.2–6.3 GW in offshore wind energy.
