Latest Updates And Structural Trends
? After a significant downgrade in Q116, this quarter we have maintained our forecasts for Poland's nonhydro
renewables sector. We expect both non-hydro renewables capacity and generation to average 3.4%

? In May 2016, Israel-based Energix Renewable Energies obtained more than PLN250mn (USD64mn) of
financing for the 56MW Phase II of its Banie wind project in north west Poland. The wind farm has a
total capacity of 192MW.
