Pedelecs: climate targets

10 reasons why the pedelec will catch on as a form of transport.

10. Climate targets

The more people ride pedelecs the easier it will be to achieve CO2 reduction targets, especially because pedelecs increasingly repla- ce car journeys. However also very significant for the CO2 footprint of a pedelec is what you feed yourself ! The pedelec is a hybrid vehicle combining electric motor and internal combustion engine (and in this case the rider is the IC engine, converting biomass - our food - internally into the form of work moving the pedals). Given this, just as with electrical energy, it is only via decentralised production and decentralised consumption of this food that the highest overall efficiency can be achieved.

1. Space-efficient to park

2. More mobility in less space

3. Comfortable, cheap and faster

4. Emissions saving

5. Safe

6. Mobility enhancing

7. Health enhancing

8. Energy efficient

9. Sustainable

These reasons have been compiled together among the Go Pedelec! consortium and are listed in order of importance from a municipal point of view. Within the Go Pedelec! consortium the municipalities or organizations of the following cities are represented: Naples (IT), Graz (AT), Miskolc (HU), Stuttgart (de) and Utrecht (NL).
