Now we have to take action and expand the charging infrastructure!
Expanding charging infrastructure is important for several reasons. Firstly, it helps to increase the convenience and accessibility of electric vehicles (EVs) for consumers, making them a more viable option for everyday use. This in turn can increase the adoption rate of EVs, which can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality. Additionally, a robust charging infrastructure can also help to support the growth of the EV industry, creating jobs and economic opportunities.
Finally, expanding charging infrastructure can also help to support the integration of renewable energy sources into the electrical grid, since many EV charging stations are powered by renewable energy.
eRoaming can play a significant role in the green transition by making EV charging more convenient for drivers, which can increase the adoption rate of EVs. This in turn can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality, as well as support the growth of the EV industry and the integration of renewable energy sources into the electrical grid. With eRoaming, EV drivers will no longer have to worry about being restricted to charging at a specific network, therefore they can roam across different countries and cities without worrying about where to charge their EV.
