Abstract

This paper presents SWOT analyses of renewable energy in Wielkopolskie region, Poland. The current state, energypotential and future prospects for the development of renewable energy in the region are presented. The SWOT analysisled to the conclusion that the pace of development of the renewable energy sector in Poland depends largely on: theproposed legislation on renewable energy sources being adopted, legal regulations being made simpler, increased subsidiesfor development of the sector, introduction of guaranteed certificate prices, and educating the public, investors,developers and decision-makers.
