Electrification of transport will bring a broad range of benefits. Cleaner air (especially in densely populated areas), better urban transport, safer and quieter vehicles and lower oil imports. That is why the Polish power sector supports electrification of the sector.
PKEE’s recommendation is that the average emissions of the EU fleet of new cars and vans in 2030 will have to be at least 30% lower than in 2021.
According to the proposal by the European Commission, average emissions of the EU fleet of new cars and vans in 2030 will have to be 30% lower than in 2021. While the EU Council is preparing its position, we would recommend taking into account the European Parliament’s position in the final outcome of the negotiations.
Electrification of transport is important to the electricity sector, just like balancing the energy consumption and generation at different times of day and night, and also building new power capacities using cleaner energy sources.
Poland – already being a frontrunner in the electric buses sector and with a large supply chain for the automotive sector – believes that the electromobility revolution will benefit the whole EU economy.
Poland is in the 3rd place in Europe with regards to currently operating and contracted electric bus fleet.
We encourage the EU to recognise the good low-emission transport practices on the national and local levels.
