Poland: Amendment of the Wind Energy Investment Act opens up new development opportunities
On February 8, 2023, the lower house of the Polish parliament (the ‘Sejm’) adopted an amendment to the Law on Investment in Wind Power Plants and certain other laws. Previous provisions limited investment opportunities in wind power plants, as they required them to be built on average more than 1 km from residential buildings. In addition, residents of municipalities had no influence on the investments being built around them. The amendment adopted in the ‘Sejm’ is intended to solve these problems.
