Sustainable mobility: 3 steps to scaling up renewables in transport 2.5.2016 Green on
"The Week that Electric Vehicles Went Mainstream" was the headline of a recent blog posted by Tesla Motors. Just one week before, the company began taking reservations for its long-awaited consumer-priced sedan, which will begin production in 2017. The response was unprecedented. According to Tesla, they received 325,000 reservations in one week, which corresponds to about $14 billion in implied future sales - the biggest one-week launch of any product ever. Commentators were quick to point out that electric vehicles (EVs) still only represent a fraction of a percent of total vehicles on the road; only 500,000 of the 66 million cars sold worldwide in 2015 were electric. In truth, while the transition to a renewables-based electricity system is well underway, moving to a renewables-based transportation system is more challenging. The transportation sector has the lowest share of renewable energy use compared with every other sector of the economy, and shares are not expected to increase dramatically based ...
