Almost half of CO2 emissions are now caused by road transport. And that should be much less soon. The Dutch government and the European Commission will push the industry with stricter rules, zero-emission zones and other objectives.
In cities around the world, mobility is undergoing a major transformation.
With growing concerns about the impact on the environment, traffic congestion and residents’ quality of life, sustainable solutions are becoming increasingly important. One of the main trends in urban change is the shift to electric vehicles and machines.
At HOMELAND there are various providers with different electric vehicles that are active in the city center. From shared bicycles and cargo bikes to buses and trucks. Incidentally, these vehicles can often be tested. In addition, visitors can attend all kinds of seminars and lectures on this theme. If you are active in this industry, it is a must to visit World of eMobility.
Electric vans (LEVs), trucks, but also electric cargo bikes and scooters are increasingly used for goods delivery and last mile delivery in urban areas. These vehicles do not produce exhaust fumes, reduce noise pollution and contribute to improving air quality.
With the continuous development of battery technologies and the expansion of the charging network, it is becoming more and more practical to implement a fully electric fleet.
Waste and cleaning vehicles such as garbage trucks and sweepers also offer environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions for waste management and keeping the city center clean. They can take different forms depending on the specific tasks and needs.
Electric garbage trucks and sweepers are becoming increasingly popular due to their zero emissions, low noise levels and are ideal for improving the air quality in the inner city.
Electric public transport in cities is also a growing trend around the world. In addition to the train and tram, the electric bus is also on the rise. These buses are quieter and emit no harmful substances, making them ideal for use in urban areas. These forms of electric public transport are efficient and can transport large numbers of passengers.
Shared vehicles such as shared electric bicycles, scooters and cars are also used in many cities. These vehicles are often available for rent through mobile apps and offer a convenient and environmentally friendly way to get around the city. Many cities around the world have taken initiatives to promote electric shared transport.
