At the moment, we are facing great difficulties in reducing greenhouse gases and creating a more environmentally friendly transport infrastructure. Several famous people have assessed our current status in terms of electric personal transport and results in the industrial sector as well as in the business districts.
The European Union aims to reduce emissions by 78 percent by 2035. There are attempts to accelerate the electric revolution, and there are some positive results, as the percentage of people who are switching to electric transport is growing.
