25.3 percent of Poland's exports are sent to Germany, according to the Central Statistical Office.

RWE, one of Europe's largest energy concerns, is planning to generate 200 MW of power in Poland by building wind farms through RWE Innogy, a subsidiary set up in February this year and charged with renewable energy projects. All up, RWE will be generating 280 MW in Poland once its Suwałki and Tychów (West Pomerania province) projects, announced in 2007, are included.

The company expects approval for the new wind farms, to be located in Mazuria and Pomerania, by the end of the year. The first wind power stations are expected to be added to the electricity grid in 2010.

Filip Thon, head of RWE in Poland says the company is planning to invest heavily in renewable energy as per its earlier announcements and will almost triple renewable energy production to 4,500 MW over the next 10 years. This will make RWE one of Europe's leading renewable energy producers. The company is planning to invest 1 billion euros in renewable energy projects between now and 2012.

Demand for renewable energy in Poland is expected to reach 13.4 TWh in 2010 compared with 5.8 TWh in 2007. This corresponds to an increase in energy sold to end users from 5.1 percent to 10.4 percent. Poland currently uses about 300 MW of wind energy according to industry sources.
