Electric mobility / Re: Electric Automobiles Safety
« Last post by VET-ES-JoseJavier on 07 September , 2019, 20:34:39 pm »
Hi Pablo,

Firstly, I would like to congratulate you for coming up with this new topic. I think few people, and I must exclude myself of them, do actually think as security as a main aspect to take into account when choosing a vehicle. However, it is true that it ought to be the most (or one of the most important) features in a vehicle.

However, one must remember a concept of Economy called "opportunity cost": that means, each time we take a decision, we have to "pay" with the opportunity of choosing another one and its benefits. For instance, electric vehicles create another problem, since not only are safer, but more silent, because they do not burn fuel . And although less noise is supposed to be less polluting and more benefitial, it is also dangerous since pedestrians have more difficulties to realize when an electric vehicle is coming, increasing the probability of accidents happening. This is why European Union has made compulsory for electric vehicles to emit sound (with a system called AVAS), but this is still not compulsory worldwide. Moreover, there are some critics to this system, since they are thing it has the "opportunity cost" of reducing acustic pollution, which is becoming a great problem.


So, what decision should be taken for electric vehicles to be "safer"?

Electric mobility / Re: What is Electric mobility?

Hi all,

We have discussed a lot about Electric Mobility, but we haven't talked much about what it actually is. That's why I'm going to talk about this from my point of view and from what I have learned investigating about it.

The transport sector is very polluting and harmful to the environment. To solve this problem, Electric Mobility appeared. This a term that refers to the development of electric drive systems which allows EVs to move. This means that vehicles that produce greenhouse gases and use fossil fuels are not included in the Electric Mobility term. In conclusion, Electric Mobility consists of clean, efficient and environmentally-friendly electric vehicles, meaning, fully electric vehicles, hybrids, and even those that use hydrogen fuel. However, E-Mobility is not only this. Some experts relate it with "Smart Grids". Here I leave you a link to a website which explains Smart Grids very well: https://www.livescience.com/41920-smart-grid.html

I also recommend you to watch these videos about Smart Grids:



Have a nice day!  :)

Electric mobility / Number of endothermic and electric vehicles today in Europe
« Last post by VET-MEX-Diana on 07 September , 2019, 03:08:44 am »

36 million endothermic vehicles
763,475 electric and hybrid vehicles *
There are 36 million endothermic vehicles currently circulating, which will soon be exchanged for electric or hybrid vehicles.

There are 763,475 electric vehicles already circulating in our cities that generate less polluting emissions and zero noise.

Electric mobility / Impact on the electro-energy system

To boost the growth of demand for electric vehicles, it is necessary to create the infrastructure to support it through electric charging stations instead of fossil fuel distributors.
Electric mobility / Electric recharge technologies
« Last post by VET-MEX-Diana on 07 September , 2019, 03:06:06 am »

Electric vehicles have a motor that uses the energy stored in a "tank" consisting of rechargeable batteries. Electric propulsion provides excellent vehicle performance, and as it is not polluting, it protects the environment and promotes circular economy and an alternative form of eco-sustainability.

The Electric Mobility revolution has already begun: the European Directive 2014/94 / EU on the alternative fuels initiative (DAFI) states that, as of 2019, every new house built or renovated in Europe will have to be equipped with at least one charging point for electric cars.

Our vision is to be your reference partner and the leading company in the provision of electric vehicle charging services as well as an active promoter in the use of electric mobility and renewable energy and green vehicles through the dissemination of information, education and tools to activate change at the social level.

The consumption of fossil fuels is the main cause of the increasing pollution that, especially in urban areas, is causing local authorities to implement vehicle traffic restriction plans.

The automotive industry and energy suppliers are moving towards alternative mobility systems to reduce pollutant emissions, while allowing savings in fuel costs. The alternative is to develop a network of charging points for public use, in order to encourage the use of electric vehicles, effectively reducing polluting emissions and promoting a green circular economy.
Electric mobility / What is electric mobility based on?
« Last post by VET-MEX-Diana on 07 September , 2019, 03:02:11 am »
It is based on the integration of mobility elements with the optimization of all products and services that can affect the city. The objective is to make the city more sustainable, thus creating a circular economy.

Knowing the position of a charging station, knowing if it is available, booking a recharge, organizing a long trip that provides adequate stops according to the autonomy of your electric vehicle, charging your vehicle, managing the charging stations are essential elements for the promotion of a sustainable electric mobility and are services we provide.

Mobility is one of the cornerstones of the smart city, in fact, it is one of the six essential factors for a city to be defined as "smart" and green. The other elements to consider are the economy, the environment, people, purchasing power and governance. Smart mobility is an expanding area for research and planning of urban and non-urban spaces, and with everything related to the transport of goods, people, information, resources and energy.
Electric mobility / What do you need to charge the electric car?
« Last post by VET-MEX-Diana on 07 September , 2019, 02:56:04 am »
All you need to charge the electric car is to connect it to the power grid. This connection can be made both through a conventional plug and through a specific charging point for electric cars. While with the former we will be limited to a charging power of 2.3kW, the specific charging points for vehicles allow us to charge at powers of up to 50kW, which will allow us to have our vehicle fully charged in just a few minutes.

There are different types of specific charging points for electric vehicles. Depending on their power, classify them as follows:

Conventional charging charger (3.3kW-7.5kW)
Semi-fast charging charger (7.5 kW-22kW)
Quick Charger (50kW)
Electric mobility / Is it worth investing in an electric vehicle?
« Last post by VET-MEX-Diana on 07 September , 2019, 02:54:57 am »
The electric car is a safe bet, its use represents a very significant saving compared to conventional vehicles. With the electric vehicle we not only save up to 75% in fuel costs, we also save on vehicle maintenance, because electric motors have 90% less parts than combustion engines and no oils or filters or oils are necessary.

In addition, you can listen to your favorite song without the soundtrack of your background vehicle, since, being silent, they do not generate any kind of sound pollution.

During these last years, the government has played a very important role in the promotion and development of the electric vehicle, thanks to the approval of tax incentives and subsidies for the purchase of these types of vehicles, as well as measures against air pollution, which they suppose certain restrictions for the most polluting cars. In addition, from 2040 the sale of gasoline, diesel, natural gas and even hybrid cars will be prohibited, as it seeks to ensure that all vehicles are electric in 2050.
