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.
The NPE’s vision for 2020 is an electric mobility system widely accepted by society that reliably meets individual mobility needs. Electric vehicles are a natural part of road traffic. Their users are seen as progressive and environmentally aware. Companies have used information and communication technologies in particular to position innovative business models and high-tech, user-friendly products on the market. On a dynamic market, users select mobility offerings that suit their particular needs. Comprehensive education and training offerings ensure high standards among experts and secure Germany’s leading supplier status.
