Poland to increase connection capacity for EV charging stations

On 1 June, Poland’s National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management and Polish power company, Energa Operator signed an agreement to increase the connection capacity of the main supply points for the development of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at passenger service points along the country’s A1 and A2 motorways.

The signing ceremony was attended by Ireneusz Zyska, Polish Deputy Minister of Climate and Environment, Government Plenipotentiary for Renewable Energy Sources (RES).

“Distribution Network Operators are an inseparable element of the development of renewable energy sources, because RES and the roll-out of electromobility in Poland require, among other things, increasing the possibility of connecting new capacities and developing energy storage. Increasing the connection potential and rebuilding the main power supply points is support in meeting the requirements of the AFIR Regulation by our country. The agreement signed today is another step towards Poland’s energy transformation,” said Deputy Minister Zyska during the ceremony.  

On the basis of the contract, the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOŚiGW) will provide the beneficiary (Energa Operator) with almost 20 million złotych (4.5 million euros) in funding for the modernisation of power supply points for electric chargers.

In total, five main power supply points are set to be modernised, which would connect fast charging points in 16 passenger service areas (located on the A1 and A2 motorways) to the distribution grid.
