Mateusz Morawiecki wrote on Twitter: "Over the next 10 years, we intend to allocate at least EUR 3 billion for this purpose, to develop research projects that will translate into increased innovation and air quality."
The Polish government aims to have 1 million electric vehicles on the country’s roads by 2025, state news agency PAP reported.
Morawiecki’s announcement came as environment ministers from around the world were scheduled to discuss climate change during the second week of a UN conference in Katowice, southern Poland.
The 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also known as COP24, officially opened in Katowice last week. It runs until December 14.
Speaking at the official opening of the summit, Polish President Andrzej Duda said his country was "ready to take its share of responsibility for international security," including in terms of climate policy.
Morawiecki, meanwhile, told international leaders on Tuesday, the second day of the conference, that his country was among nations leading the way in efforts to stop global warming.
