Polish Electromobility Plan’s requirement for zero-emission cars in municipal fleets [Poland]

The plan underscores the role the public sector can play in promoting electromobility. It includes requirements for public institutions to purchase electric vehicles. The various institutions covered by the targets have not been very active in implementing the measure, partly due to financial constraints. 

Recommendations

  • A detailed and integrated financial plan earmarking funds up until 2030 should be added to ensure this policy can reach its full potential.
  • National institutions should cooperate and coordinate their purchasing strategies.
  • Local authorities need a robust, clear and uniform methodology to assess the cost/benefit of zero-emission buses in public transportation with an independent review of their impact assessments.
  • The environmental benefits of this measure should be quantified to promote buy-in from stakeholders.
  • Fossil fuel transportation should be explicitly excluded from this scheme.
