Dear CEO of ENEL, Mobility is a fundamental human need and a key enabler of economic and social prosperity. How people move affects productivity, security, health and global warming.
The mobility revolution is lead by electric cars with benefits in terms of energy efficiency, safety and environmental sustainability, but are cities ready for them?
In the future, transport options will be increasingly dependent on a city's specific characteristics, including its level of car ownership, urban density, income per capita and infrastructures such as road and rail networks.
As global demand for electric mobility continues to grow, innovative public-private partnerships offer unique opportunities to overcome the persistent challenges in transportation, such as greenhouse gas emissions, congestion and security.
Collaboration between governments, businesses, civil society and academia is crucial to provide improve better access to transport without compromising the quality of life in towns and cities.
