The power line will connect Pomerania with Silesia. A revolutionary plan to expand the national network

The urgent need to expand national power lines has long been discussed. Their inefficiency is evidenced by the mass refusal to connect additional wind or solar farms to the network. Rapidly expanding renewable energy sources, the construction of large-scale offshore wind farms and nuclear power plants in the north of the country, as well as the projected increase in electricity demand, forced Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne to present a new development plan for the next decade. . The operator proposed revolutionary solutions, including the construction of a special transmission corridor connecting the northern and southern parts of Poland..

– In the next decade, it is planned to decommission a significant part of coal-fired power plants, including power plants in the center and south of the country, as well as to launch large sources in the north. This will result in an unprecedented flow of energy from the north to the south of the country and increase the load on the transmission network.. Our proposal is to build a direct transmission line from Pomerania to Silesia, which will allow us to control the flow of energy regardless of the flow of energy in the national network, explains Maciej Przybylski, Director of System Development at PSE.
