are looking for additional projects to buy."
Mr. Kastner continued, "Projects are developed by a
dedicated team of specialists in the Warsaw

connection with the projects that we won in the 2019 auction. Meanwhile, we are
looking to purchase more projects. Specifically, we are interested in
installations with the support granted in the 2019 auction, as well as projects
that will be ready to start in the 2020 auction."
