For e-mobility to grow, everyone must have the possibility to recharge their EV easily, no matter where they live and work or where they are going
This year is widely regarded as a tipping point for the electric vehicle (EV) market in Europe(i) . According to some predictions, there will be 33 million EVs on the road by 2030 based on the current European policy scenario, and as many as 44 million EVs in the case of a climate-neutral policy(ii) . Demand for charging solutions will grow exponentially to support all these extra EVs.
Therefore, it is essential to ensure that the charging infrastructure is aligned with the flourishing e-mobility market. European policymakers are currently shaping national policy frameworks to support the development of the alternative fuel market and the associated infrastructure. Financial support is expected to be complemented by a push from governments and corporates on climate and air-quality agendas, such as governmental bans on the sale of vehicles with internal combustion engines (ICEs) and corporate initiatives such as the EV100 Climate Group, in which LeasePlan is involved. In this blog, we dive deeper into how government incentives and local measures aimed at boosting the EV charging infrastructure are stimulating the successful implementation of zero-emission mobility.
