Alternative third-party ownership business models on photovoltaic market in Poland

Title variants
Languages of publication
The production of electricity from renewable energy sources is currently experiencing a boom in the world. This also applies to Poland, which despite the small volumes of RES installations is significantly accelerating the development of this segment. The aim of the article is to discuss the current situation of photovoltaics in the world and in Poland. The analysis of current models of financing photovoltaic in Poland in comparison with global trends already existing in America, Western Europe or China allows to draw conclusions on the development of alternative models of financing photovoltaic investments.
