Energy efficiency through electro-mobility development in Poland
The electro-mobility development may be seen as an apparent trend in the highly developed countries, especially in Western Europe. This is driven by both the wealth of the inhabitants as well as by the increased ecological awareness of the society. At present, Poland cannot boast of success in this field. There are about several thousand charging stations installed in Germany, England, France, the Netherlands and Norway, while in Poland there are only 150 of them, and from about 80 to 150 thousand electric vehicles are in use in those countries as opposed to only less than two thousand in Poland. Therefore, rapid and decisive action is needed in Poland to promote the development of electro-mobility, in particular by creating appropriate incentives, preparing infrastructure as well as informing the public. Poland is among the five countries in the European Union where no action has so far been undertaken to support the development of electro-mobility.
