The Polish Senate has passed the nation's eagerly-awaited offshore wind act, completing a lengthy legislative process that paves the way for 5.9GW of wind at sea to be built by 2030 and almost 11GW by 2040.

"The regulations contained in the Offshore Wind Act, laying a foundation for development of wind farms in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea, will support Poland’s transition towards a low-carbon economy over the coming decades," said Kamila Tarnacka, vice-president of the Polish Wind Energy Association (PWEA).
