The National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOŚIGW) plans to allocate PLN 1 billion to support the expansion of the distribution network for charging stations, said Artur Lorkowski, vice-president of the NFOŚIGW, during the session of the parliamentary subcommittee on electromobility. The funds will come from the Modernization Fund, and their pool will be launched in agreement with the European Investment Bank in 2021. According to Lorkowski, this amount should allow the construction of 4,000 km of power lines and 800 transformer stations.
He also announced that the European Commission should issue a decision in October on support for the hydrogen charging and refueling station program.
"I hope that in November we will be able to announce recruitments to support the hydrogen charging and refueling infrastructure," Lorkowski stated.
He added that the Fund intends to allocate PLN 670 million for subsidies to hydrogen stations, and their beneficiaries may be local government units, entrepreneurs, cooperatives, housing communities, and farmers.
