Wroclaw is a strategic point on the map of European electromobility development. All components of batteries for electric cars up to the product ready for installation in the car are produced in LG Energy Solution Wrocław in Biskupice Podgórne. During his visit to the factory, European Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius had the opportunity to see how EV batteries are made. He also talked about perspectives of electromobility development in Europe.

LG Energy Solution Wroclaw is the largest among the factories producing batteries for electric cars in Europe: the successive increase in production capacity distances it from its competitors by more than 50% in terms of the number of all EV batteries produced on the Old Continent. LG Energy Solution Wrocław, with a capacity of 86 GWh, currently supplies about 700,000 EV batteries per year. In the near term, once the company reaches its target of 115 GWh, it will be able to supply one million batteries for electric cars.

LG Energy Solution's investment in Lower Silesia has resulted in the introduction of cutting-edge technology to Poland, as well as making our country the European leader in this industry: the country is currently No. 1 in Europe, and globally ranks 2nd, after China, in terms of lithium-ion cell production. The value of Polish exports of batteries for electric cars last year amounted to $8.7 billion, which was more than 2% of the value of all Polish exports.
