Poland RES Act amendment

On 9 September, the Senate approved an amendment to the RES Act under which the maximum capacity of energy sources classed as small installations will be increased from 0.5 MW to 1 MW. This is intended to help to increase the number of investors who intend to generate and sell energy from higher-capacity installations without a concession being required. In addition, there would be no requirement to include RES installations of a capacity of up to 0.5 MW in spatial development studies (in the case of photovoltaic power stations on land of class 5 and 6, and on barren land, this threshold is to be raised to a nominal capacity of 1 MW).
