Poland added about 4.7 GW of new solar power capacity in 2022, according to new data from research institute IEO. It predicts that 2023 could be another record year, thanks to another 6 GW of new solar capacity.
Distributed generation solar power systems account for about 9.3 GW of this capacity, while ground-mounted solar power plants account for another 3.1 GW. According to the report, the Eastern European country added about 4.7 GW of new solar power systems in the previous year.
At the end of the first quarter of this year, its cumulative installed solar power had already exceeded 13 GW. The institute said Poland could add another 6 GW of solar power systems this year, bringing its cumulative solar capacity to more than 18 GW.
The Polish solar market is expected to grow strongly in the current decade to reach 30 GW of installed capacity by the end of 2030, according to the IEO.
