Electric Transport: The Power Of The Letter e

Technology is advancing, and sustainability with its green alternatives is definitely the trend. In this article, we look at technology in the world of electric transportation.

The Extra e-Push

We have been riding bikes for a very long time, but the e-bike seems to be the hype these days. But did you know that the e-bike has been around for almost a century? The craze around the electric bike has increased as travelers want safe and sustainable ways to commute.

It was displayed for the first time at the Stanley Show in 1897, and it was put to use in 1899. During the 1899 Bol d’Or (a bike race that took place in Paris and lasted 24 hours), the electric tandem was used to set the cyclists' pace riding on regular bicycles.

You still have to show effort because cycling with an e-bike doesn't happen by itself. The assistive speed is useful when riding on hills or cycling long routes. In the UK, e-bikes reach an average speed of 15.5 miles per hour. This is then also the legal limit. Commuters can cut their travel time in half.

Why are e-bikes even more popular? Because they also encourage less active people to exercise. Even a little pedaling has health benefits. An e-bike encourages the less energetic to continue this movement overtime on a regular bike. Who knows, maybe this makes the e-bike an opening for more exercise and a healthier lifestyle.

Towards An e-Green Future

e-Green alternatives are not just for commuters. There is also a lot of talk about them in motorsports. In fact, people are looking at new technological possibilities in the future: Formula E. This is a motorsports championship that has one seat and only uses electric cars. Its popularity is increasing a lot. Google also shows that many people are searching for this new technology between 2011 (the beginning) and August 2020.

Traditional motor racing devours fuel like crazy, but this new technology is being praised. MEP and then future president of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, advocated this sport. This is because he believes that this electric way helps to reduce CO2 emissions. Besides, this is an excellent introduction to electric and hybrid systems.

The FIA, the sport's governing body, decided in December 2019 that Formula E could compete for the world championship in 2020-2021. This was a momentous move by the organization, especially since the sport is so young.

The decision turned Formula E into the first single-seat racing series other than Formula 1 to be granted world championship status. Electric sports have not existed that long, and their popularity is immense. This also shows the public and fans that they are behind green innovations and like this new sport. 

There Is Not A Driver On The e-Bus

The wheels on the e-bus go round and round.

This children's song may have to be adapted if you look at the future of public transport because bus transportation is also becoming greener and smarter, with electric and autonomous vehicles. In 2019, Volvo was the first in the world to launch a full-size autonomous, electric bus. At Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, Volvo would launch two vehicles. A smart campus will track the use of these buses.

Electric buses are not entirely new and are used in public transport all over the world. Look at London, which currently has 51 electric buses. But many innovations are going on. The Stagecoach Group said they are running autonomous buses in a depot in Manchester. The Society of Automotive Engineers says they define five levels of autonomy. Stage five means fully independent. Stagecoach Group indicates that their vehicles are at level four. That means the buses are fully self-driving; the driver does not need to take over the wheel with certain maneuvers. But it has to meet certain conditions to go into full autonomy.

In e-Conclusion

Technology shows us that we can be enthusiastic about the future. Whether we want to travel longer distances by bicycle, e-bike, or enjoy sustainable sports, everyone can have their part in creating a healthy and environmentally friendly living environment. A small investment in these exceptional innovations can make all the difference in creating a more sustainable world, whether commuting to work or enjoying it with your friends or family.
