Renewable Developer BeGreen strengthen its developing activities in Poland

18 December, 2023

After many years of development activities in renewable energy projects in Poland, Danish solar developer, BeGreen, is now ready to establish a permanent presence in the Polish energy market.

In a strategic move to fortify its position in the renewable energy sector, BeGreen, a 6 GW solar developer and subsidiary of Norwegian energy major Equinor, is set to invest further in renewable pipeline development in the Polish energy market. Renewables industry leader, Robert Trzaskowski is poised to lead the charge as Managing Director for BeGreen in Poland.

With a rich legacy rooted in Danish and Polish agriculture and a considerable pipeline of solar projects in Poland already, BeGreen is well-positioned to make a significant contribution to the Polish energy landscape.

“BeGreen has a unique perspective on the development of renewable energy projects, with a 360-degree sustainability concept at the core of their business, and I am excited to help develop BeGreen’s presence in the Polish market,” says Robert Trzaskowski.

Robert Trzaskowski’s passion for solar and wind energy aligns seamlessly with BeGreen’s commitment and ambition in the renewables industry, making the collaboration a perfect match. Anders Dolmer, CEO of BeGreen, is thrilled to welcome Robert Trzaskowski to the team:

“To have Robert join our company as our Managing Director in Poland is a gift. He has a lot of experience from the renewable industry in Poland, and we are very privileged to be able to draw on his extensive experience and knowledge.”

BeGreen’s expansion in Poland is a pivotal step in its overarching business strategy. Robert Trzaskowski will spearhead the establishment of a new developing team in Poland, beginning with the opening of an office in Warsaw by January 1st, 2024.

Equinor, BeGreen’s parent company since January 2023, sees this move as an important contribution to strengthening its renewables position in Northern Europe.

Equinor’s Country Manager in Poland, Michal Jerzy Kolodziejczyk states:

“We welcome BeGreen’s plans to expand their development activities in Poland which is an important market for Equinor. This will further extend our broad energy offering in Poland, which includes gas supplies through the Baltic Pipe, large scale offshore wind projects, and onshore renewables projects carried out by our subsidiary Wento.”
