The PGE Capital Group publishes its financial and operating results for the first half of 2020. The results achieved in the lignite/coal power generation segment confirm the correctness of the Group's transformation towards low- and zero-carbon emissions.
PGE has acquired the Skoczykłody Wind Farm with a total capacity of 36 MW, located in the Łódź Voivodeship. The project will allow to increase the total installed capacity of PGE wind farms by over 5% and will strengthen the company as the largest producer of “green” energy in Poland.
Environmental research related to the construction of one of Poland's largest photovoltaic farms in Poland is underway. The investment project is being carried out by PGE Energia Odnawialna, a member of the PGE Group. The PV farm will have been completed by the end of 2020. It will be located in the commune of Grębów in the Podkarpacie province, on nearly 152 ha of rehabilitated land used in the past for sulphur mining operations by the company Siarkopol Tarnobrzeg.
From today, a city the size of Lublin will have electricity from the wind. The PGE Group has launched two new wind farms, Starza/Rybice and Karnice II. The investment project in the north-western part of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship comprises 43 turbines with a total installed capacity of nearly 100 MW. The project has increased the total installed capacity of PGE's wind farms by 20 percent to near 647 MW and strengthened the Group’s position as the Poland's largest manufacturer of green energy.
At the request of Baltica 1 Wind Power Plant, a PGE Capital Group company, Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne S.A., Poland's transmission system operator, has issued requirements for connecting the 896 MW offshore wind farm to the national power grid. This is another stage in the offshore wind farms project being carried out by PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna.
