In this way, Maciej Mazur, the Managing Director of the Polish Alternative Fuels Association (PSPA – Polskie Stowarzyszenie Paliw Alternatywnych), was appointed as the president of the association.
Regarding this appointment, Mazur declares, “As the first leader of this organization from Poland and Central and Eastern Europe, I wish to bring a new quality to AVERE, including our ambition and strong determination to drive electric mobility dynamically and with dedication.”

To achieve this, the association will seek to promote innovation, develop competencies to shape future electromobility technologies, and ensure that the regulatory ecosystem is prepared for its dynamic deployment.
