Today, 100% electric vehicles represent only a small part of the world's car fleet, yet they are destined to replace all diesel and petrol vehicles in the coming years. Less pollution, less noisy and (soon) cheaper, these vehicles are starting to see their market take off.
We are talking about electric vehicles for a long time even though their market has only partially developed. In Italy in 2017 there was a + 71% of hybrid cars and a + 38.6% of electric cars.
If the market started to take off, it was thanks to the combination of technological advances in energy storage, the reduction in the purchase price, the increase in supply diversity and the political will to encourage green mobility (ecological bonus, obligation of electrical equipment for some fleets, etc.).
ENGIE uses an ecological mobility offer
As a pioneer of the energy revolution, ENGIE considers transport - responsible for 23% of CO2 eq emissions. in the world - an important axis of development. Mobility is a central issue for our cities, which in 2050 will bring together 67% of the world's population. In ENGIE we are helping to create a new cleaner and cheaper mobility in cities and territories around the world.
In March 2017, ENGIE had already installed over 5,000 charging points for electric vehicles in Europe. Its network of charging stations expands with the acquisition in March of EV-Box, European leader in EV charging solutions.
The Dutch company has 40,000 operating charging stations in 20 countries and markets software and tariff management services for companies, the public sector and private customers.
A major advantage: the EV-Box charging solutions are universal and can be used by any type of electric vehicle.
