Poland to Amend Renewables Bill Amid Wind-Farm Investor Concern

Poland, which boosted wind-power capacity 37 percent last year, will amend a proposed renewable-energy law after investors said a December draft would hamper development of new ventures and erode wind-project finances.

The December plans, aimed at saving the government as much as 1 billion zloty ($313 million), would reduce support for onshore wind farms, boost subsidies for costlier technologies and scrap an obligation for utilities to buy fixed-rate power from renewable sources.
