2nd debate:

“Without a new long-term energy policy and a new regulatory environment, offshore energy and  gas will not be developing in Poland.”

  • Climate policy and EU law are a sufficient basis for the development of offshore wind energy in member states.
  • Diversification of gas sources and technological development of offshore wind farms and increase of energy prices will contribute to the development of gas and offshore wind without additional support system.
  • Poland has a regulations that allows to develop offshore energy projects and sufficient to make an investment decisions.

VS

  • Even megatrends and the technological revolution in the energy sector will not affect the development of projects because of unstable situation of Polish market.
  • Gas imported by sea will be too expensive source of energy to play an important role as a source of electricity, without additional solutions supporting cogeneration.
  • Offshore investments will not develop because of high level of costs and difficulty.

VS

  • Polish companies are not able to compete with more experienced foreign suppliers.
  • Polish shipbuilding industry should focus fully on ship building.
  • Foreign suppliers and investors prefer to cooperate with suppliers from their own countries.
  • Foreign ports have more experience in servicing offshore wind farms than Polish ones.

„International cooperation as a basic condition for the implementation of offshore wind farms in Poland”

  • Polish companies are very intensively developing the potential of supply and service related to the implementation of offshore wind farms and by 2030 they will be ready to carry out such projects independently.
  • If the target for OWF is defined above 6 GW a turbine factory may be built in Poland.
  • The most advanced offshore wind farms projects of Polish investors could be developed by their own.
  • Polish OWF may be serviced and operated from Polish ports.
  • Foreign investors are not interested in investing in the Polish offshore industry.
VS
  • Development of the Polish offshore industry potential is currently possible only in cooperation with foreign companies and the provision of services on foreign markets.
  • Polish offshore wind market may be very attractive for foreign suppliers who will try to enter it through cooperation with Polish companies.
  • Polish investors will need experienced partners during development of offshore wind farms.
  • In Poland there are no companies with experience in construction management, service or specialized environmental modelling.
  • Drawing on foreign experience and Polish potential will ensure cost optimization and will accelerate the development of offshore wind energy.
  • Foreign investments in the Polish offshore industry can increase the potential of the Polish supply chain.
