German economy minister Peter Altmaier has said that Poland and Germany plan a cooperation on battery cell production, reports Spiegel Online. The production could be located in the eastern German lignite mining region Lusatia and western Poland, writes Spiegel. “We declare establishing a close cooperation between Polish and German consortiums dealing with battery development,” wrote Polish entrepreneurship and technology minister Jadwiga Emilewicz in a message on Twitter after a bilateral meeting with Altmaier in Warsaw.

The governments will organise a joint Polish-German business summit focusing on innovation and e-mobility in the first quarter of 2019, she wrote.
