Recent years have seen tremendous technological progress in the wind energy industry. Bigger wind turbine rotor surfaces and greater heights at which they are installed made it possible to use sites that have until recently been considered unprofitable to now construct wind power stations on them.
At the best of locations it is possible today to achieve a capacity factor far exceeding 40%, while for the majority of others it is 25%, which is considered to be the break-even threshold.
The system currently in operation in Polish wind energy industry allows a well-prepared scheme to achieve very good economic parameters for the investment. A correctly diagnosed level of wind energy resources is a guarantee for a sound and secure venture.
Wind power stations are the strongest pillar of Polish renewable energy. Wind power stations no longer remain on the fringe of the world’s energy industry, they have now taken a rightful position at its core.
