Green Investment Group enters Polish onshore wind market

17 Feb 2021

Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG) has announced the acquisition of the 42MW Kisielice onshore wind farm from Impax New Energy Holdings Cooperatief WA.

Located in Warmiab, Masurian Voivodeship, it is GIG’s first investment in Poland. The project has been fully operational since 2014 and consists of 21 Enercon E82 turbines generating enough renewable electricity to power 45,590 homes per year.

Poland now plans to ensure that 21% of gross final energy consumed comes from renewable energy sources by 2030. Alongside offshore wind and solar, this is creating attractive opportunities for both new and existing onshore wind developments.

With its first investment in Poland, GIG continues to expand its footprint across Europe. GIG recently acquired the Hornamossen onshore wind farm in Sweden and also announced plans to acquire a 40% stake in East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm on the UK coast. GIG is now active in 11 countries across Europe, and 15 countries globally.
