Always on the look out for what’s moving the world of sustainability, one topic in particular has caught our eye and our imagination in recent months: e-mobility. Electric vehicles – and the associated infrastructure – are developing fast, with ever more projects looking to make them cleaner, smarter, and more accessible. 

We’re rolling out a RESET Special on e-mobility over the next two weeks, taking a closer look at electric vehicles’ green credentials, weighing up the problems and available solutions around charging, and giving you practical tips on how you too can join the electric revolution. We’ll also be looking at the most interesting, innovative and downright awesome projects in the field: analysing the key to success in the world’s “electric car capital”, looking at how e-bikes could offer a genuine alternative to buying a car, and presenting you with the world’s first 3D-printed electric bus.

How many electric cars are there on our roads? How sustainable are they really? What does e-mobility mean for the future of transport in our cities? If you want to brush up on the basics and get the lowdown on the key facts and figures, developments and debates, then get started now and check out our brand new Knowledge article: E-Mobility: Where Is It Taking Us?

We’ll be publishing an article each day over the next two weeks, so check back regularly for the latest updates.

The future looks bright for e-mobility. Want to find out which countries are leading the way, how electric vehicles are now holding their own against the rest of the market, and what innovative startups are doing to keep e-mobility moving forward?

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. Not just because our stocks of fossil fuels are dwindling, but most importantly because burning them emits huge amounts of greenhouse gases.
