West Pomerania’s economy depends on its location - direct access to the Baltic Sea (through the port of Szczecin), and proximity to Germany and the Scandinavian countries. Distance between Szczecin - European seaport and the capital of the province, and Berlin is only 130 km. The region, primarily associated with the shipbuilding industry and agriculture, today develops various sectors of the economy, especially those related to advanced technologies. Region as more and more uses renewable energy sources, which can be observed by increasing the number of wind turbines and thermal power plants.
