Poland is finally ready to become the next big European offshore wind market.

The country has for a while looked like it was about to seriously start developing its offshore wind potential, but only now are all the key ingredients nearly in place. One is having strong foreign partners.

Danish offshore wind champion Orsted has just said it will enter talks to buy half of the 2.5GW Elektrownia Wiatrowa Baltica 2&3 arrays from state-owned utility Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE) that are among the furthest developed in Poland.
