Going electric for your car is a great start to become more sustainable but is it really much cleaner than the fossil-fuel powered alternative? It depends on where exactly you are charging your electric vehicle!
According to the international energy agency and a recent Bloomberg study, everything depends on how you produce your electricity. In the world, if an electric car is recharged on the grid, it is producing, on average, 90 gr of CO2 per km. For some other countries, it is even more because the power generation comes from fuel combustion. Thus an electric car can produce the same amount of GES as a small diesel at the end.
Those analyses on the electric mix are critical while we are promoting and developing electric solutions recharged everywhere across the world. The different motor shows in the world and most particularly the last one in Paris, show that the demand is going to take off in the next few years. And all the car manufacturers are definitely betting on it for the future. The electric car growth will increase the power need on the grid. Understanding global warming pollution, in both power generation and transport, is key to make sure we are truly sustainable for the planet and changing for an electric transport is really making a difference.
The origin of the power is essential for the future electric mobility. Therefore, countries with high fossil-fueled power need to develop solutions to create a clean electricity and provide it directly to the vehicle. Therefore, they will make sure the mobility is 100% green for the planet.
The DRIVECO Parasol® is the smart and solar solution to these challenges the world is facing: With 88 solar panels on its roof, the Parasol® is producing its own electricity and provide it directly to the vehicle. Thanks to its storage capacity, it is possible to charge 24/7 and even share with the grid the power surplus. With a dedicated and innovative smart grid, the Parasol® is able to guarantee the balance between production and consumption in real time. Moreover, it is functioning as a charging station isolated, off grid, and inside of a station grid located in different points in the same state. Indeed, currently it is installed in Corsica in 2 different cities separated by 150 km. Driveco is recharging all the electric vehicles only with solar energy any time of the day thanks to the Parasols® and its smart grid. With this innovation, it is now possible to insure 100% green power in real time for electrical vehicles. And even more it benefits to the citizen by sharing the surplus in a micro grid or to the national grid.
By bringing the production of the electricity on site, the Parasol® brings a green and sustainable solution to power generation for transport and insures that you are driving electric without GES across the world.
