Vortex Energy

Supporting the energy transition in Poland

Vortex Energy is a leading renewable energy developer in Poland and Vitol’s first major investment in renewable power in Europe. Founded in 2004 in Germany, the company entered the Polish market in 2006, delivering over 400 MW of operational renewable generation capacity in wind and solar. Playing an active role in Europe’s decarbonisation strategy, Vortex has a development pipeline of over 3 GW, which Vitol acquired in January 2023.

A pioneer in the renewables sector in Poland, the company is driven by a diverse team of experts offering a full suite of services through the lifecycle of the asset. This includes developing greenfield wind and solar projects through to providing construction and operational management services.

Our intention is to initiate the construction of over 120 MW of PV solar and onshore wind projects over the next 12 months. Poland is amongst the biggest emitters of carbon dioxide in Europe, the planned investments will help the county to cut its emissions and its reliance on coal. Vortex will ultimately enable the sustainable, continued delivery of affordable electricity to Polish counterparties, as well as the Central and Eastern Europe region.
