During the last year’s UN climate summit, the Presidency of COP24 presented the “Driving Change Together – Katowice Partnership for Electromobility” declaration, which was adopted by more than 2,500 entities – dozens of countries, regions, cities and international organisations, ultimately covering more than half of the world’s population. The Forum is part of this partnership and was announced by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki at COP24.
The Forum will be a high-level event, attended by representatives of governments, regions and cities, international organisations and companies that have an impact on the shape and pace of development of the global electromobility market.
Electromobility requires promotion in the world, which is why we will invite all the signatories of the ‘Driving Change Together’ declaration to take part in the Forum, alongside new entities, in the hope that this idea will gain global momentum - said Michał Kurtyka, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Environment, during today’s briefing.
The Forum will take the form of a round table meeting, featuring workshops and working group meetings, largely devoted to practices that were effectively conducive to the development of electromobility in various markets. Poland has a lot of things to show in this respect, including comprehensive legal regulations dedicated to electromobility.
We are a leader in manufacturing and putting electric buses on the roads among European countries, we have some of the largest electric car-sharing systems in Europe. Poland manufactures cells, lithium-ion batteries, battery components and charging infrastructure - said Michał Kurtyka.
The Forum will also feature a demonstration zone – an accessible area for visitors, showcasing the latest solutions in the field of electromobility.
The Forum is organised with the participation of national and international partners, including, among others, the Polish Alternative Fuels Association.
