On January 21, 2021 the President of the Republic of Poland signed the Act of December 17, 2020 on the promotion of electricity generation in offshore wind farms adopted by the Parliament. The Act will enter into force, in principle, within 14 days of its promulgation.
The Act provides for two systems of support for electricity generation in offshore wind farms: an administrative system, when support is granted to interested parties by way of an administrative decision, and a competitive system, when support is granted to the entity that won the auction.
In accordance with EU regulations, support may be granted administratively until June 30, 2021 after which date the granting of support must be competitive.
The deadline for submitting applications for administrative support is March 31, 2021.
