Sector supported by the Government’s strategic policies

Electromobility is one of the most important elements of the Polish Government’s Strategy for Responsible Development. The project assumes that by 2025, there will be a million electric vehicles travelling on Polish roads. Public transport is also going to undergo electrification. Both these projects play key role in the innovation process of the Polish economy.
