We are at a time where many of the models created years ago need profound changes in order to adapt to the reality of the world today, and to the new paradigm of Sustainable Development. More specifically, one of the aspects that appears to have reached its turning point is transportation and the mobility sector.
There are two essential reasons why the transport sector needs to undergo important changes: increase its energy efficiency, reduce its dependence on petroleum and diminish its environmental impact. Our planet's energy needs are steadily growing, while the main energy sources used (fossil fuels and uranium) are limited.
It is essential to convert modern energy systems into more efficient ones, and the most important challenge in this respect is the transport sector, which is highly energy inefficient. The emission of large quantities of a huge number of contaminants (CO, CO2, CH4, NOx, etc), the high noise levels in our cities and the expected impact of climate change caused by the greenhouse gases emitted by our vehicles, have led to the adoption of strict measures to reduce contamination levels and better protect our health and the environment.
In our society, transport makes up almost 40% of primary energy consumption, and so it is no exaggeration to say that the electric car is the car of the future because it offers substantial benefits for the challenges and problems of our times.
How, When and Where to charge the batteries of the electric car?
There are several models of Electric Vehicle on sale and on the streets of our cities, while a considerable increase is forecast in their number and variety over the next few years. The basic component of the EV is the new lithium ion battery, which has to be regularly charged.
For the new Electric Vehicle mobility model to develop effectively, it is essential to make great efforts to install adequate charging infrastructure.
