The means of transport today represent a large part of the world's pollution . This is why it is necessary to act quickly to protect the planet and make our economy sustainable, in particular through green mobility. We will see here that there are already suppliers who have anticipated the trend with suitable offers.
What is green mobility?
The basic principle of green mobility is to travel while limiting the harmful effects on the environment . It is not necessarily a question of choosing 100% ecological means of transport, but above all of having an eco-responsible approach as often as possible. Thus, it can for example be a question of favoring public transport rather than the personal car, going to work by bike if the place is not too far from your home or even using electric vehicles . Carpooling is also an increasingly developed trend thanks to the many dedicated smartphone applications. The important thing is to always ask yourself if a more ecological alternative would not be possible during your travels. Moreover, it is also an easy way to save money.
Towards less polluting means of transport
We have been able to witness in recent years a rise in power of electric vehicles , whether in France or in the world. Cars, scooters , bicycles or even scooters , it is now more and more common to see this kind of electric vehicle circulating. This trend is therefore fully in line with green mobility. Although they are still quite polluting today, especially in terms of manufacturing and battery charging, these 2.0 means of transport represent a great step forward towards the energy transition. The advantage is that we already know how to produce electricity from renewable sources such as the sun, water or wind. We can therefore hope that in a few years, most vehicles will be able to run on electricity and that the latter will be produced mainly through renewable energy sources.
Energy suppliers and their green offers
100% green energy offers
To adapt to the ecological trend and current environmental issues, a large number of suppliers today offer offers intended to support renewable energies . These are often referred to as 100% green energy offers. It is not a question here of consuming green energy at home, but rather of participating in the development of renewable energies in general. Indeed, the principle is that the money collected for each kWh of energy consumed via your subscription will then be donated to the production of renewable energies . It is therefore a good way to do something for the environment, especially since there are now many green electricity suppliers with very attractive offers.
Offers specialized in green mobility
In addition to supporting green energy generation, some providers have also taken a step ahead of their competitors by offering green mobility-friendly deals. The latter are intended to be more interesting for those who have an electric vehicle and wish to recharge it at home . To do this, the offers operate with a Peak Hours / Off-Peak Hours system comprising rates that are even lower than normal during Off-Peak Hours. Thus, the subscriber can recharge his electric vehicle during these periods and save money. Among them, there is notably the Vert Electrique Auto formula from EDF as well as the Elec'Car offer from Engie, both offering prices up to 50% lower during off-peak hours .
How to subscribe to a green energy offer?
The subscription process with a supplier, whether for a green offer or a classic offer, is very simple. It will suffice to fill in some information such as your meter number, your contact details, your postal address as well as a meter reading. You can do this by phone or online depending on your preference . In the case of the offers dedicated to green mobility that we mentioned earlier, you will also have to present proof that you are the owner of an electric vehicle. If you change provider, be aware that the new one will take care of the termination of your old contract entirely for you. Energy contracts are non-binding and therefore cancellable at any time without proof .
