can speed up the decarbonization process and curb the impacts of climate change. It is a way to remove greenhouse gas emissions from energy consumption in many sectors, including in transportation
. Electric cars will run on energy that is entirely produced from renewables and completely free from CO2 emissions. This translates into cleaner air, reduced impact on health, and lower medical costs. As well, electric cars are quiet: by cutting noise pollution, they improve quality of life. Currently in Italy, 33% of the power supply comes from renewables. This means that the estimated “well to wheel” emissions of an electric car
are about 70% lower than those of a gas vehicle and about half those of a methane vehicle. As well, electrification is an opportunity for businesses and cities
to become more efficient, productive, resilient, and sustainable. It is a key part of the energy transition to a net zero world.
