To speak of electric mobility is no longer to speak of the future, but of the present. The energy policies in most European countries go in this direction and the Balearic Government has been one of the pioneers. The Law of Climate Change and Energy Transition promoted by the Executive of Francina Armengol, which is in parliamentary procedure, foresees that the mobile fleet of the Islands will be decarbonised by 2050. This is, within 32 years, all the vehicles that will circulate through the Islands must be electric. For its part, the central government wants to push a law that prohibits the sale of gasoline, diesel and hybrid cars from 2040.
It is not about isolated measures. In 2024 Rome and Paris will prohibit the circulation of diesel cars, and a year later Brussels will do the same. The capital of Norway was the first to ban the use of these cars during the peaks of pollution and in less than two years all diesel will disappear from Oslo. Denmark wants the entire country to be free of any fossil fuel by 2050.
