Polish Post and Energa are developing electromobility


Polish Post is preparing to introduce electric cars. Energa is to help. Both companies have signed a letter of intent - they will jointly develop transport based on this type of vehicle.

Polish Post has been conducting activities for the development of electromobility since 2018, testing various types of electric vehicles and charging stations. The company has a fleet of over 5,000 cars and is preparing to gradually replace them with electric cars. Already this autumn, the first postal electrics will join the fleet of vehicles.

Energa is to help Post in providing infrastructure for electric cars along with the necessary devices for charging them and the management system. The energy company is systematically expanding its charging network for this type of vehicles. By the end of 2019, the Energa Group will have a total of 54 stations, and by 2022 at least 100. They will be located, among others along the main communication routes and in most major cities within the Group's operations. Some of them will be fast charging stations - enabling the vehicle to be charged to 80%. within 30 min

The companies are preparing for the "Electromobility Development Plan in Poland" launched by the Ministry of Energy, implementing the "Plan for responsible development".

Last year, Post carried out the largest tests in Poland of electric vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes with a load capacity of up to 800 kg. It was a "testing ground" for drivers and maintenance staff as well as manufacturers. Nine car brands and five types of charging stations were tested. Electric vehicles with a payload above 800 kg are currently being tested. Cars of five manufacturers are used in everyday work by postal workers in Warsaw, Poznań, Lublin, Łódź, Zabrze, Kraków and Pruszcz Gdański. At the same time, charging stations from 4 companies are being tested.
