Poland is dedicated to creating a greener world combating global climate change for decades and this year is crucial for solar in Poland. In 2016, the polish government introduced solutions to facilitate the development of photovoltaic micro-solar installations, thanks to which this market started to develop dynamically in Poland. Last week in April, the polish Energy Ministry announced to roll out the ‘eco-loans’ which will offer up to PLN50,000 (over US$13,000) to support domestic PV installations. These ‘eco-loans’ will contribute to further expedite projects especially for small-scale PV projects in Poland.
GoodWe has been and will be active in this emerging market for many years now and our on-grid inverter series are well recognized. We can say with confidence that our residential products are considered as Top-Tier quality in the small-scale PV industry in Europe. All whilst making a breakthrough in medium and large-scale commercial and industrial sector in the past years.
After a successful and productive participation on the GreenPower Exhibition taking place this week, GoodWe has gotten one step closer to the Polish market. We brought a selection of products quite representative of the expanding GoodWe offer and very suitable to meet the expectation of the Polish market. We presented our most popular products in Poland such as GoodWe’s Smart DT series which is specially designed for three-phase solar systems. Our team also introduced the SMT series which is ideal for medium and large-scale commercial rooftop and the second generation of MT series with huge power capabilities.
Alongside all that, we also brought our brand new energy storage inverter ET as part of our exhibition showcase. Covering a power range of 5kW, 8kW and 10kW, this three-phase high voltage hybrid inverter allows up to 100% overloading and features our UPS function to inductive loads with an automatic switchover time of less than 10 milliseconds. We are convinced that the future of energy storage segment in Poland is very promising and we are confident that our brand will keep growing in this market.
As of December 2018, according to IRENA, Poland was home to 487MW of grid-connected PV across all classifications of inverters. This year, the country is set to tender a further 750MW of PV as part of plans to boost installed capacity between 2020 (900MW), 2030 (10.2GW) and 2040 (20.2GW). Poland is a country full of potential and we are ready for the challenge, are you?
