Electromobility and energy transition

Published by on 10.21.2020 - 3 min

At a time when the effects of climate change are increasingly apparent and harmful, how can we imagine the future of mobility? Can electric vehicles play a role in energy transition?

Cutting greenhouse gas emissions to limit global warming is a challenge facing all industries today. At the center of this quandary is the issue of fossil fuels and the impact of burning them to produce energy, get around, etc. To address it, energy transition is aimed at switching out this setup in favor of one that’s all about renewable energy and decarbonized energy sources (solar, wind and hydraulic power, etc.). It also promotes a reduction in overall energy consumption via a simpler lifestyle that does not waste resources.

That being the case, what does the future of combustion-engine vehicles look like? How can electromobility help towards this transition? How can the electric vehicle go beyond zero emissions* performance and play a role in energy transition by becoming a source of electricity itself?
At the end of the day, if sustainable mobility is going to develop, it has to be attractive to users and accessible to the masses. What strategies has the automotive industry put in place to promote that?
