mobility – Climate protection on the road

Approximately one fifth of greenhouse gas emissions in Germany is caused by transportation – reason enough to warrant a closer look. Not only does electric mobility represent a particularly energy-efficient way of getting about, but with electricity produced from renewable energies, it enables mobility with almost zero CO2 emissions.

Battery-powered electric mobility – a joyride for passenger transport

Battery-powered electric mobility is particularly well suited for passenger transport. Vehicles fully recharge their batteries at private or public charging points and hit the road. And driving does not need to be any less enjoyable – electric engines are particularly attractive when it comes to getting started, and can deliver horsepower to the road very quickly. Unlike conventional combustion engines, they can do so very quietly.

By now there is a broad selection of battery-powered electric vehicles: from scooters to bicycles all the way to cars, the right vehicle for every use is available.

A major sticking point when it comes to the breakthrough of electric mobility is having a comprehensive charging infrastructure. EWE is making its contribution here by installing hundreds of charging points in the northwest. Over the next few months, new locations will continually be added throughout the country; EWE Go is cooperating with McDonald’s Germany to install and operate charging points at more than 1,000 restaurants by 2025.

 

Hydrogen-powered mobility for heavy-duty transport

Hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles offer advantages when travelling long distances or transporting large loads. Since electricity is used to produce hydrogen, it also counts as electric mobility. What’s important for the climate here is that the electricity used is also generated from renewable sources.
