    On the eve of the COP24 climate conference in Katowice the Embassy of Poland in Copenhagen in cooperation with Danish partners organized a seminar on electromobility and Polish-Danish cooperation for green transport. The participants included Undersecretary of State at the Polish Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology Marcin Ociepa, Director General at the Danish Ministry of Energy and Climate Dorte Nøhr Andersen, as well as a numerous business companies, including Polish stakeholders Solaris, Ekoenergetyka and Asseco.

    Electromobility strategies in Denmark and Poland were discussed at a conference launched on 29 November 2018 by the Embassy of Poland in Copenhagen in cooperation with the Danish Chamber of Commerce (Dansk Erhverv) and Dansk Energi. Both, the governmental and regional perspectives were highlighted in the debates. Director of the road traffic department at the City Hall of Copenhagen, Mr Steffen Rasmussen along with Ms. Jolanta Kielmas of the Marshal's Office of West Pomerania in Szczecin focused on policies targeting a green transformation of the transport sector. Both presentations were followed by comments from business representatives, including well-known Polish and Danish brands such as Solaris, Ekoenergetyka or Green Mobility.

     

    Inaugurating the event, Ambassador Henryka Mościcka-Dendys underlined: “Climate change and the need of transition to a low-emission economy is one of the biggest challenges of today. We are working intensively for the development of the electromobility sector in Poland, which is also one of the main topics of the upcoming COP24 conference in Katowice. I am very pleased to open the Polish-Danish seminar on e-transport, since I am counting on intensive cooperation between companies and research institutions from both countries within this field.” The development of the electromobility sector will have a positive impact not only on the automotive sector, but also on the energy sector and the entire Polish economy. In Denmark, the new climate strategy presented by the government in October this year implies a reduction of CO2 emissions by 50% before 2030, and one of the means for achieving this goal is to remove vehicles with gasoline or diesel engines (including buses and taxis) from the road traffic (by 2035, also hybrid vehicles should be removed), as well as designation of environmental zones in cities, where particularly stringent emission requirements will apply.

     

    The seminar attracted about 60 participants. On its margins, the Embassy organized a network meeting and a study visit by a delegation of Polish companies to the Danish green energy cluster CLEAN
