  1. The Regulation of the Minister of Climate on the reference price of electricity from renewable energy sources (“RES”) in 2020 and the periods for producers that won auctions in 2020 (“Regulation”) was published was published on 4 May 2020. It shall enter into force on 19 May 2020.
  2. The Regulation sets a maximum price per 1 MWh (in PLN) that may be sold by energy producers in an RES auction. The Regulation also specifies the period of support of the RES projects. As in previous years, the term of support shall be 15 years.
  3. This regulation is necessary for the purpose of conducting RES auctions in 2020. The budgets of the 2020 RES auctions have been set already (you can read more here). Now, the President of Energy Regulatory Office should announce the schedule of the RES auctions in 2020, and later announce each auction (each such announcement needs to be made 30 days before the given auction). Currently, a tender was also launched for updating the Internet Auction Portal, the President of the Energy Regulatory Office set the deadline to submit bids for 1 June 2020.
  4. Compared to previous years, the reference prices are falling, both for installations with a total capacity of less than 1 MW (“Small installation”) and with a total capacity above 1 MW (“Large installation”). The reference price for onshore wind and PV installations in the years 2016-2020 are presented below in Table 1.1. and Table 1.2. A table with all reference prices for 2020 is attached to this newsletter.
