– Poland has a comprehensive and ambitious policy of responsible development, an integral part of which is supporting electromobility – said the Prime Minister. – In the coming years we will allocate nearly USD 4 billion for this purpose. The Electromobility Development Plan in Poland is a document setting out the areas of action, and its operationalisation is the Act on Electromobility and Alternative Fuels. Therefore, we have created the architecture of the clean transport market in Poland. In order to ensure the completeness of the system, we have also decided to prepare a financial instrument to support the implementation of the planned measures – the Low Emission Transport Fund, which will be operational at the beginning of 2019.
