According to the United Nations (UN), although cities occupy only 3% of the earth’s surface, they host more than half of the world’s population and are consequently responsible for 70% of energy consumption and 75% of carbon emissions.

To achieve this, electric mobility could help reduce polluting emissions on the road. An article in the energies magazine reports the strategies that six European smart cities have implemented to accelerate this transition and the policies implemented in the field of electric mobility have been evaluated. The analysis of these policies has shown positive results by inducing a significant reduction in pollution.
