A case study on the role of local governments in stimulating the transition towards more sustainable mobility
Within the transport sector, society is confronted with several sustainability challenges, including the need to reduce CO2 emissions and improve local air quality. Electric transportation has been introduced as a solution to these challenges as it solves some of the negative externalities, such as emissions and noise production, and at the same time retains the current social and economic benefits of the car. However, due to the fact that several aspects, such as infrastructure, are currently aligned to and revolve around the dominant technology of fossil-fuel based cars (Geels, Kemp, Dudley & Lyons, 2012: 3), electric vehicles face difficulties in their upscaling.
