New Polish Act on Electromobility and Alternative Fuels

The Act provides for a system of incentives in Poland, including abolition of excise tax on electric cars and plug-in hybrids (PHEV), exemption from parking fees, larger depreciation write-offs for companies. It also includes building a base infrastructure network for alternative fuels in agglomerations, densely populated areas, and along trans-European road transport corridors, which will allow free movement of vehicles powered by these fuels. It is planned that by the end of 2020, there will be created 6,000 electricity charging points with normal power and 400 high power charging points as well as 70 CNG refuelling points in Poland.

The Act is intended to improve Poland’s energy security, while the choice of electromobility is a strategic choice that will reduce dependence on oil imports.
