Electromobility continues to experience massive growth. Sales of electric cars are increasing and the expansion of charging infrastructure is also progressing. But what role does electromobility play in concrete terms and what action plans are there at all to pave the way to climate neutrality? What solutions are there for using renewable energies throughout the supply chain? And what is the Status Quo? We talk about this with Dr. Sandra Wappelhorst, Senior Researcher at the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and Lisa Bolin, Climate Lead at Polestar.
