Iberdrola encourages consumers to make a rational use of transports and a more efficient use of energy in order to reduce the environmental damage. Two of the main company's goals are to reduce emissions and to promote energy efficiency.
The future of decarbonisation depends on effective energy storage, among other factors, whether on a small scale in, for example, an electric car, or on a large scale in the distribution network. This is where lithium-ion batteries, currently the most competitive, come into play. Here, we take a look at their components, how they work, their advantages and their role in a sustainable future.
Approximately 10% of the world's population, namely around 650 million people, suffer from some form of disability (UN). This figure will only increase due to demographic growth and the ageing population. The transport industry is working hard to ensure their mobility is not a further limitation.
Iberdrola plans to install electric vehicle charging stations in the main motorways and traffic corridors of Spain, as well as in the public access spaces of the main cities. The plan, which includes the start-up of at least one rapid recharge station every 50 km, will allow travel throughout the country with autonomy.
Would you go to the theatre in a driverless taxi? Would you share your car or travel to work on someone else's car? The new urban mobility environment is going to change everything... starting with the way we think.
The transition to sustainable mobility and transport electrification are crucial to halting climate change and saving the planet. In the medium term, electric vehicles will replace those with combustion engines, a change that requires research and development of more durable, efficient electric batteries — the core of these vehicles — which must also be kinder to the environment.
