EON inaugurated on Thursday a 52.5 MW wind farm located in Poznan, Poland. The wind plant is worth approximately 100 million euros and is part of the company’s program that is meant to deliver more renewable energy to the grid.
The company aims to produce 4 gigawatts of renewable energy by the end of the year and to reach 10 gigawatts by 2015. According to an official statement,”21 turbines located at seven sites around Poznan will deliver clean wind energy to as many as 45,000 households. EON now has a market share of roughly 10 percent and ranks among the top five companies generating wind power in Poland.”
Poland stands out as one the countries with high potential in what concerns the wind power industry, due to its natural conditions. This could compensate for the fact that Poland is one of the biggest carbon dioxide emitters in the EU.
