On May 20, 2016, the Sejm (lower chamber of the Polish Parliament) adopted an Act on wind turbine investments (the “Act”).
From the very beginning of the legislative process, i.e., from the moment when the bill of Act was submitted to the Sejm as the initiative of MPs in mid-February, it was evoking much controversy and, at the same time, it faced a definite opposition on the part of the wind farm industry. According to the opinion voiced by the industry, the Act, if adopted in its originally proposed form, would put to a halt the development of the wind power sector and, additionally, it would have an adverse impact on the projects that are already in operation. Finally, a certain part of the postulates made by the representatives of the wind power sector was embedded in the wording of the Act that was adopted by the Sejm. However, a considerable part of the regulations that were perceived as disadvantageous by wind power investors, was finally included in the Act.
Below, we present the salient points introduced by the Act regarding the location, construction and operation of wind turbine investments:
The Act adopted by the Sejm on Friday includes a number of watering down amendments compared to the initial bill; for example, the chapter on penal measures has been deleted as well as a number of provisions regarding competences of the Technical Supervision Authority (including the provision requiring a decision allowing for the operation of a wind turbine to be obtained).
The Act has now been passed to the Senate.
The final wording of the Act will depend on the results of the Senate’s works. The Senate may adopt the Act without amendments (then the Act will be passed to the President for signing) or it may reject the Act or introduce amendments (if so, the Act will be returned to the Sejm for review).
The Sejm is also working on an amendment bill regarding the Act on renewable energy sources (“OZE Act”). The first reading of the bill was on Friday and on 24 May 2016 a vast number of amendments was proposed during the session of the Energy and State Treasury Committee. These will require a separate analysis and discussion.
