Poland Surpasses Original Green Power Output Target

Poland has more to be proud of than vodka and pierogi these days, as green power output has surpassed original estimates. With an abundance of renewable power on their hands (especially from wind farms that have been making the news recently) officials have signed a decree that forces utilities to increase the share of green energy sold to customers by 1 percent every year, according to Renewable Energy World.

Electricity from renewable sources is expected to be about 11 percent this year, slightly higher than the 10.4 percent requirement established in 2008. Along with wind farms, the green power increase is attributed to biomass power generation, which is undergoing its own change-up in Poland. The grade of wood used as biomass has been lowered, putting an end to the mandatory usage of high-quality wood. Requiring high quality wood for biomass power generation caused wood prices to spike in other industries.
