Looking for greener ways to get from A to B? Then it’s about time you welcomed e-mobility into your life. We’ve taken a look at the best ways you can get involved, and the apps and technologies that are there to help.

Each and every one of us has a whole host of options when it comes to living more sustainable lives – making decisions that limit CO2 emissions and create minimum pollution. When it comes to transportation, there’s huge power in our decisions. Whether it’s cutting down on car journeys and choosing to use a bicycle or public transport instead, or making sure to carpool, so that the car is used to its maximum efficiency. Or even choosing to holiday closer to home, so we can travel by train or bus instead of plane.

Advances in e-mobility have only expanded the options on offer – and they go far beyond simply investing in an electric car. Why not sign up to a car (or moped) sharing scheme, make your own bicycle into an e-bike, or use an electric cargo bike to make deliveries? And if you already own an EV – or are thinking of buying one – there are lots of apps out there to help you optimise your experience.

Here’s our pick of the simplest and most effective ways that we’ve found for getting you on the road with e-mobility: Act Now: Join The E-Mobility Revolution.

The future looks bright for e-mobility.

E-Mobility: Where Is It Taking Us?

Climate change, particulate pollution, C02 emissions: If we're to make a switch from fossil fuels to clean energy, the transport sector needs to find new concepts, alternative energy sources, and innovative solutions.

PlugSurfing: Why Driving an Electric Car Is Already Paying Off

Electromobility is catching on, but progress is slow - many potential new users are still put off by the charging process, and afraid of getting stuck in the middle of nowhere with an empty battery.
