At the end of March 2022 in Poland we had less than 43.5 thousand electric cars. Is this result which is satisfying for us?
The topic is very hot and we can argue about it endlessly. One thing is certain - the number of electric cars will be growing and in the same time on the market will appear parts that can be reused - all for the benefit of the environment.
We are pleased to announce that our company Rare Metals Sp. z o.o. - Recycling for Elektromobilności and Automotive today signed a decision on support with the Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone "INVEST-PARK". We are starting the construction of a modern lithium-ion (li-ion) battery processing plant, components for their production, and comprehensive service for this segment.
A revolution in the battery sector in the European Union!
On July 12 this year, a groundbreaking step was taken in the field of sustainability - the European Parliament and the Council adopted legislation that includes regulations for the entire life cycle of batteries: from their design to end of life.
The result is a closed-loop economy (GOZ) for the EU's battery sector, a major step toward a sustainable future.
The new regulation aims to establish uniform rules in the EU market and reduce the environmental and social impact of batteries at every stage of their life.
Electric cars: are they green?
In Poland, more and more people are opting for electric cars - more than 80,000 vehicles are already on our roads powered by electricity or as plug-in hybrids. However, myths and stereotypes still surround them. Are electric cars really green and are they worth buying?
More CO2 is indeed generated in the production process of e-autos than in the creation of combustion cars, mainly due to EV batteries. However, in the use of electric cars, "electrics" have the advantage, becoming greener over the years. After driving tens of thousands of kilometers, the balance of CO2 emissions is more favorable for "electrics," especially when using energy from RES.
Is it worth investing in an electric car?
You need to consider the price of the vehicle, which can be slightly more expensive than internal combustion cars, but government subsidies help make up the difference. The cost of using an e-car depends on the electricity rate. Charging at home is cheaper than at public stations.
In addition, electric cars require fewer repairs and have lower service costs, resulting in higher profitability. There are also numerous benefits for e-car owners, such as exemption from parking fees and bus pass entitlement.
Thus, there are financial and environmental benefits to choosing an electric car, which makes this eco-friendly future decision well worth it!
Electric revolution on Polish roads! As of the end of June 2023, there were 45,214 electric vehicles in Poland, of which 11,489 were registered in the first half of this year - an increase of 72% compared to 2022. The fleet of electric cars continues to grow: we already have 80,232 electric passenger cars. This is just the beginning, the number of electric vehicles continues to grow, and the charging infrastructure is developing along with them.
Shifting to electric vehicles is a step towards a green future!
