During the COP24 climate summit in Katowice (Poland), Polish Alternative Fuels Association (PSPA) and the PwC advisory firm have recapitulated the results of their Polish e-mobility market survey and rewarded six companies most involved in the development of zero- and low-emission transport. The leaders of electromobility in Poland are: BMW Group Polska, Ekoenergetyka-Polska, GARO Polska, GreenWay Polska, Magenta Grupa TAURON and Nissan Sales CEE.
Six titles of ‘Electromobility Leader 2018’ were awarded in the ranking. The winners received their statuettes and diplomas on the Polish pavilion at the COP24. The event was attended by Jadwiga Emilewicz, Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology, and Krzysztof Tchórzewski, Minister of Energy.
Poland has great potential in terms of electromobility, but it has to be stated clearly: we are just at the beginning of this road. The “2018 Electromobility Leader” survey is to recognise companies that cross the routes, companies most involved in the development of sustainable transport, companies who will make Polish economy innovative and provide competitive growth in the world.
Overcoming further barriers in terms of coverage, infrastructural availability, or the constantly increasing prices of electric vehicles will make electromobility popular. That moment is close at hand and even today, this means changes for many industries, services, and even society.
Ranking for Innovators
The ‘Electromobility Leader 2018’ ranking was prepared on the basis of a survey conducted by the Polish Alternative Fuels Association and PwC from September to November 2018. This is the first edition of the initiative showing the condition of the Polish electromobility market and indicating the entities most involved in its development. The survey involved 116 companies and institutions.
Each of the survey questionnaires contained over 160 questions on such issues as electric vehicles used, plans to purchase them, expected financial outlays on infrastructure, current offer of e-mobility products and services, etc. Companies represented nearly the entire electromobility value chain, including manufacturers of vehicles, charging infrastructure, components, as well as financial institutions, fleet users, and even technology recipients have participated in our survey.
Vehicle manufacturers included in the survey assume 100% (year to year) sales growth, both in 2019 and in 2020. The increase in the number of chargers sold by infrastructure manufacturers is expected to be of 98% in 2019 and of 162% in 2020. Among the observable trends, we should also emphasise the following: including sustainable transport in the corporate mission, creating corporate positions dedicated to electromobility, as well as educational and marketing activities in this area.
The title of ‘Electromobility Leader 2018’ was awarded to:

In terms of technology being understood as the development of climate-friendly modern solutions, special emphasis is to be placed on electromobility.
