Two companies, namely Solaris Bus & Coach S.A. and PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna S.A. (PGE S.A.), representing different industries, intend to work together in order to use common battery packs both in automotive and stationary applications.

Solaris is a leading European manufacturer of innovative buses as well as urban rail vehicles and has supplied over 15 000 buses to customers in 32 countries. In 2011, Urbino electric – the first Polish battery bus was officially presented. Since that time, Solaris has produced over 100 battery electric buses (in total over 1600 buses, including hybrids and trolleybuses) and carried out standardization of batteries used in buses.

PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna S.A. is a parent company of PGE Capital Group, and it is the largest vertically integrated company in energy sector in Poland in terms of revenues, installed capacity and electricity produced. Thanks to the combination of its own fuel resources, power generation and distribution networks, PGE guarantees safe and reliable electricity supplies to over 5 million households, businesses and

The strategy objectives of Solaris and PGE S.A. include maintaining a position of a reliable and active supplier of goods and services, as well as development in the area of new technologies, new business models and new business segments.

This paper will present an overview on possible usage of the same lithium ion batteries both in automotive and stationary storage applications, which may have an impact on reducing component price and emissions in our country.
