Africa: What Are the Opportunities in the Polish Electro Mobility Market?

press release

Warsaw — Frost & Sullivan and DLA Piper host exclusive E-Mobility breakfast briefing

The electro mobility sector in Poland has become one of the crucial pillars in the Polish Sustainable Development Plan. The ambitious goal calls for 1 million electric vehicles (EVs) on the roads by 2025. Will it be possible? What is the current governmental position on this issue? These and other questions were raised during an E-Mobility breakfast briefing co-hosted by Frost & Sullivan and DLA Piper on April 11, in Warsaw, Poland.

This invite-only event kicked off with the presentation, Global Overview of the EV Market by Anjan Hemanth Kumar, Programme Manager, Powertrain & EV, Frost & Sullivan, and was followed by lawyers from DLA Piper Poland discussing legal aspects. In the final part of the event, all attendees participated in a panel discussion - Opportunities in the Polish Electro Mobility Market - moderated by John Raspin, Director, Energy & Environment, Frost & Sullivan. They discussed infrastructure concerns and what is needed to speed up the process.

As discussed during the event, from 2011 to 2016, the average EV penetration of new personal vehicle registrations was only 0.13 percent. New government regulations will play an important role in solidifying Poland's position as one of the region's strongest supply chain players in the EV market.

Norway has the highest EV adoption among all European countries; however, with an average of $8,250, it also has the highest incentive. While Poland is launching its electro mobility plan later than the rest of the EU states, it can use this to its advantage.

"Poland has a tremendous opportunity to analyze the models implemented in other countries and cherry-pick the best policies in order to drive its domestic E-Mobility industry," said Mubarak Moosa, Director, Central and Eastern Europe, Frost & Sullivan.

The event featured high-profile speakers from industry players and government representatives, including from the Ministry of Energy, Greenway Infrastructure Poland, and Impact Clean Power Technology. This breakfast briefing further established Frost & Sullivan's and DLA Piper's pioneering role in thought leadership with respect to the future development within the Polish electro mobility market.
