Germany is trying in every way to accelerate this process, so as to be able to respect more and more stringent regulations on the reduction of CO2 emissions in Europe. To do so, it wants to take advantage of the market trend that sees a sharp increase in registrations of electric and plug-in hybrid cars. “This is certainly excellent news for climate protection and for the decarbonisation of mobility – Altmaier explained to some journalists in Berlin – Such a forecast is also destined to have a strong impact on electricity consumption ”. The German government in fact foresees that the increase in registrations of electric vehicles it will increase the demand for electricity to around 655 TWh by 2030.
