How to support the transition to sustainable mobility?
The climate emergency we are experiencing requires us to accelerate the transition to clean mobility. While environmentally friendly solutions are multiplying, governmental authorities are propelling laws and regulations that aim to accelerate this change. Stations-e, as an actor of decarbonated mobility, explains how to accompany this transition.
A context that invites a rapid transition
A context that calls for a rapid transition Therefore, we are forced to review our lifestyles and consumption patterns, including mobility.
In addition, the decision-makers, by wishing to propel the transition, are creating a regulatory context that is increasingly complex to follow and anticipate, which impacts manufacturers, mobility players and individuals. Indeed, rules are multiplying at different levels (global, European, national, regional) and the scope of applications can be confusing. It is important to help consumers understand these directives in order to encourage them to act in favor of the development of low-carbon solutions.
Finally, the number of actors acting for a sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is increasing. Strategies, innovations and ideas are varied and can be complementary. In order to make a smooth transition, consumers need to be accompanied and made aware of the realities of tomorrow.
Types of actors working for the transition
In order to better understand the challenges of this transition, it is important to be aware of all the stakeholders involved. Indeed, the actors of clean mobility are plural and can be separated into two categories: private and public actors.
In the front line, we can identify car manufacturers. In order to accompany the transition to low-carbon mobility, they must offer products that are in line with this objective. However, not all of them have yet undertaken the production of electric vehicles and if they do, the prices proposed are too high to be able to carry out a massive transition.
Thus, the questions that arise are:
How to produce clean and affordable vehicles? How to lead the transition to clean vehicles to replace thermal vehicles that will soon be banned from circulation in certain areas?
Energy producers and suppliers:
Then we can identify energy producers and suppliers. Without clean energy, clean mobility cannot develop. Indeed, in countries where the production of electricity has a heavy carbon footprint, the production of electric vehicles is also heavy, mitigating the cleanliness of this mobility.
On the other hand, the transition to low-carbon mobility is possible if consumers see their purchasing power protected in the long term. This is why the price of clean energy must be more accessible than carbon energy.
Public transport operators:
There are many forms of mobility, which is why, in addition to developing clean individual mobility, it is also imperative to develop low-carbon public transport. Thus, accompanying consumers towards the decarbonization of their travel also means offering them clean public transport solutions that correspond to their needs and anticipate those of tomorrow.
Insurance and financing organizations:
Many of the players in the clean mobility sector are start-ups that require financing and insurance. In order to develop their offers and concepts, they need to be supported in their projects by insurance and financing organizations. In addition, these organizations have a second role to play in the transition: to encourage the choice of low-carbon solutions among individuals by offering them financing and insurance rates that are more advantageous than those for thermal vehicles.
Mobility-related service providers:
Because we live in an increasingly connected, fast-paced and demanding world, so are the needs of consumers. Therefore, in order to accompany and encourage the transition towards decarbonization of mobility, service providers must meet the current needs of consumers and anticipate those of tomorrow. It is with this in mind that at Stations-e, we offer multi-service and connected car charging stations.
We cannot forget the consumers in the list of actors of the transition to clean mobility. Indeed, they participate by creating the demand. Moreover, consumers can be classified in 2 categories: private companies and individuals. While private companies have to offer environmentally friendly mobility solutions to their employees or customers, private individuals need to understand and demand this mobility in order for it to develop.
The State and all its constituent parts (ministries, regions, cities and local authorities) must be involved in the transition to the transport modes of tomorrow. The challenges are varied.
On the one hand, there is the imperative of respecting the commitments made in the Paris agreements to limit global warming. On the other hand, there is a need to develop clean mobility solutions in order to accompany the French in the transition. Finally, the state must respond to the issues of purchasing power, accessibility and reliability of these new mobilities. These problems cannot be solved without a concerted action between all the actors of clean mobility.
The measures taken
The questions and issues of the various players in clean mobility complement and respond to each other. This is why it is important that all the players work together to make this transition a success.
To do this, various actions must be taken. First of all, it is important to identify low-carbon solutions. In this way, it is possible to develop those that have the most potential and to support the others so that they become part of and fully meet the needs of tomorrow.
Beyond identifying solutions, we must facilitate the creation of synergies between actors. In this way, the transition and development of low-carbon mobility will be accelerated. By proposing offers that are as close as possible to users’ expectations and needs, it will be easier to support the transition to low-carbon mobility.
For the first time, the Drive To Zero exhibition will bring together all the players in the field of low-carbon mobility in order to promote their actions, create new synergies, and allow them to help each other in the promotion of new mobilities. The Stations-e teams will be there from April 5 to 7, 2023 to promote our connected car recharging solutions, respectful of the purchasing power of the French.
