Poland formally adopted its first Electro-Mobility Act on Monday (5 February), a document branded as a new “constitution” for the development of electric cars and buses in the coal-dependent country.
Speaking to EURACTIV, Marta Gajęcka cautioned however that it would be “a completely utopic vision” to have electric cars based solely on renewable energy in Poland where coal remains the “pillar of energy security”.
Marta Gajęcka is Vice President of PGE Renewable Energy S.A., Vice President of the Polish Electricity Association (PKEE) and Director of International Energy at Eurelectric, the European trade association. She is also head of energy advisors at the Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland.
She spoke to EURACTIV’s energy and environment editor, Frédéric Simon. (...)
