Electromobility to reduce EU emissions


If theEuropean Union wants to achieve its goals reduction of harmful emissions, must engage more in the transport sector by promoting a electric mobility. This is stated in the latest study drawn up by Ricardo-AEA, the result is clear: if Europe wants to cut its CO2 emissions by 2025, it will have to commit to bringing more to the streets electric cars and hybrids.

The study conducted by Ricardo-AEA, was commissioned by Greenpeace and groups that deal with Transport and Environment. The report examined various scenarios for 2025, the targets for the reduction of harmful emissions produced by Europe, could be respected by acting solely on the transport sector.

It is not a surprise for theEuropean Unionin fact, just a few months ago, the European parliament was putting in place different strategies to promote one sustainable mobility. The strategies included funding for projects related toelectromobility, moregreen cars, more security, more alternative fuels, less harmful emissions etax incentives for smart mobility. The solution, for the European Commission, lies in research and competition so as to make the electric cars more accessible to the public.

The four pillars examined by the European Union are:
- hitech technologies, research and innovation
-Stronger market and smart regulation
- international harmonization of vehicle regulations
- anticipating adaptation and cushioning social impacts

The commission, to obtain a rapid reduction of the effectiveharmful emissions, intends to define complementary measures for thecontrol of polluting emissions from vehicles in circulation.

Why the electric mobility struggling to take off?
The higher cost of aelectric car it is recovered in a short time thanks to the substantial savings on fuel expense: the estimates see an amortization of the additional expenses in less than three years. So why the electric cars struggle to spread?

Anyone who has left Italy knows well that in many other countries the electric mobility is already normality. Holland is an example of this, or even more so, Norway. Giant steps have also been taken by France, also thanks to the commitment of car manufacturers such as Renault. The lack of infrastructure - recharging columns and ad hoc refueling stations - is penalizing for our country. Another crucial factor are the slowdowns in the incentive plans for the purchase of electric cars.
