What is Electric mobility?

What is Electric mobility?
« on: 07 September , 2019, 02:50:04 am »
This concept arises from the concern of the environmental health of the planet, the sustainability and habitability of our cities, issues that increasingly concern us and that electric mobility can be a solution that contributes positively to all three.

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!  :)

Hi everyone,

I hope it is not too late for reminding (if it has not been already said) that a good introduction to the theory of Electric Mobility is the Expert Guide, which can be found at http://iysc.org/index.php?topic=4635.0. And, as Diana has pointed, although the electric mobility could be literally translated as "powering transport through electricity", it involves a lot of socioeconomic, politic and environmental consequences (so as any improvement in technology, but taking into account the importance of transport and its impact in greenhouse effect gives it an enormous relevance).

And of course, as Eider has said too, powering vehicles through electricity can integrate through into more powerful systems like Smart Grids, Smart Cities, Distributed Generation, etc. However, although its possibilities are almost unlimited, the focus of the essays should not be forgotten. Without discouraging you to explore other topics, I advice you to make sure what you are writing has to do with electric mobility. We all have ever talked so much about something to a point where we have forgot what we were really discussing. Anyway, I suppose that will be a useless advice, but I would have liked to be reminded that a couple of times in my life, so I do it this time  :).
