Electric mobility protects the climate, environment and resources, promotes technological innovations and enables new business models. It is a task that encompasses all sections of society and covers a great deal more than just electric vehicles. Numerous components – from drive technologies to charging infrastructure – come together to form the electric mobility system. At the heart of this are the users. To ensure that they can choose from a range of offerings and that only the best technologies and services win through, the German National Platform for Electric Mobility (NPE) pursues an approach that is market-orientated and open to different technologies.
People want to achieve their goals in a fast, reliable, cost-effective and environmentally friendly process. The NPE thus views electric mobility from the users’ point of view – as an integrated offering ranging from fast charging and driving fun with attractive vehicles and tailor-made mobility services with electricity from renewable energies. Electric mobility is thus more than just vehicles. It is a system – vehicles, energy supply and transport infrastructure are interlinked and form a sustainable mobility system that transcends the boundaries of traditional industrial sectors. At the heart of this system are the users.
