Signing of the agreement with the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management

On 27 July, 2017, in Warsaw, in the presence of Mr. Paweł Sałek – the Deputy Minister of Environment and the government commissioner for climate policy, there was signed the agreement on the implementation of the project “Energy efficiency by the development of electromobility in Poland” between the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management and the Institute of Environmental Protection – National Research Institute.

The aims of the project include, among others, promotion of electromobility concepts, preparation of methodologies that support the development of electromobility in Poland, as well as the analysis of the potential impacts of the introduced fleet of electric vehicles on the electricity systems and the environment. There also will be carried out the analysis concerning the effects of electromobility development of on human health.

“The world is betting on electromobility. Combining renewable energy sources and transport is a solution that by definition eliminates low emissions and comprises all the components of the sustainable development strategy that the Ministry of Environment considers a priority” – said Mr. Paweł Sałek, the Deputy Minister of Environment and the government commissioner for climate policy.

In Poland, the interest in electromobility has been increasingly growing, however, a considerable distance separates us from the leading European countries, such as Germany, England, France, the Netherlands and Norway. In each of these, there have been already installed several thousand charging stations, and the numbers of electric vehicles range from 80 thousand to 150 thousand. In Poland, charging stations add up to around 150, and the number of electric vehicles comes down to less than two thousand.

The Institute of Environmental Protection – National Research Institute, as the first among Poland’s research units, will carry out the relevant and comprehensive analysis and will issue implementation recommendations for the development of electromobility in Poland. “Such a methodical approach is necessary to ensure the continued dynamic development of innovative transport technologies” – said Dr. Eng. Krystian Szczepański, the Director of the Institute.

The project will be implemented by the Institute of Environmental Protection – National Research Institute, in cooperation with: the Institute of Power Engineering, the Institute of Applied Research, Warsaw University of Technology and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Częstochowa University of Technology as well as the Norwegian Partner – Green Business Norway – a professional organization acting in the Environmental Energy & Technology sector.
