Poland to develop electrochemical energy storage

On Monday (29 May), Polish energy and critical raw materials companies and selected universities signed a letter of intent to cooperate in the development of electrochemical energy storage, accompanied by Piotr Dziadzio, Chief National Geologist and Government Plenipotentiary for Raw Materials Policy.

The letter sets out the aim to develop an ion cell factory that can be used in the Polish energy storage system, both in prosumer and larger scale facilities.

“The key area of ​​energy storage is the storage of energy available to all of us – the citizen,” Deputy Minister Dziadzio.

The letter was signed by representatives of the Orlen Group, Grupa Azoty, KGHM Polska Miedź, PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna, AGH University of Science and Technology Stanisław Staszic, Warsaw University of Technology, Jagiellonian University and the University of Warsaw.

The ability to store energy will significantly contribute to greater and more effective use of renewable energy sources based on solar and wind, Poland’s Climate and the Environment Ministry said.

“Our goal is to use the available domestic raw material potential for the construction of cells and energy storage facilities. Thus, we carry out the tasks resulting from the State Energy Policy and the State Raw Materials Policy. The development of energy storage technology is a necessity for the efficient functioning of the power system in Poland and the further dynamic development of prosumer energy,” the Chief National Geologist said.

The development of the country’s energy storage sector may create over 26,000 jobs across Poland, the Climate and the Environment Ministry said.
