Poland is ranked 10th in Europe in terms of the conditions for wind power energy, according to a report by advisory Ernst & Young, cited by business portal However, the country fails to make use of 90% of energy that could potentially be generated by wind farms here. According to the report, this loss of power may be estimated at PLN 5.9bn (EUR 1.4bn) annually. Meanwhile, Poland's installed wind farm capacity is below 2,000 MW, according to the data of the Polish Wind Energy Association (PSEW), cited by the portal. This is ten times less than in Spain, whose wind farms - in good weather conditions - could cover for 53% of that country's electrical power needs.
