The average price of 2.2GW in capacity tendered off in Poland’s latest onshore wind auction fell below the wholesale electricity price in the Eastern European country that still has a power mix dominated by coal.

The Energy Regulatory Office selected 101 out of 164 bids submitted in December, with an average winning bid coming in at 208 Polish zloty ($54.31) per megawatt hour, less than the PLN220/MWh in the wholesale electricity market (TGE Base).
