Innovation will fuel e-mobility adoption
Growing consumer demand is also helping e-mobility gain mainstream traction. In fact, automotive consulting firm AutoPacific reports that consumer demand in the US has grown to 5.6% of total light vehicle sales in 2022. The figure was 3.3% in 2021. One reason for this increase is that consumers are looking for eco-friendly alternatives to traditional means of transport, which contribute about a quarter of total carbon dioxide related emissions. to the energy entering the atmosphere.
These changes in policy and consumer sentiment not only herald a new era for e-mobility, but also underscore the need for continued technological advancement. “Scale for effective e-mobility technologies,” said Jeff Harris, vice president of enterprise and portfolio marketing at Keysight Technologies, a US-based simulation and design provider. More efficiency is crucial to accelerating widespread adoption of electric vehicles and reducing carbon emissions globally. , and test equipment for electronics. He continued, “There are immediate opportunities for innovation in the e-mobility ecosystem that will help make electric vehicles more affordable, convenient and appealing to consumers.”
As organizations rise to this challenge, innovations are emerging, from new battery designs to EV charging and supply equipment (EVSE) or charging infrastructure that, together, promise to accelerate adoption Use electric vehicles and contribute to a cleaner planet.
