DOES THE IMPACT OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES EXTEND BEYOND THE TRANSPORT SECTOR?reon
According to a European Union report, “The transport sector causes 28% of the total CO2 emissions, wherein the road transport contributes a huge percentage of over 70% of these emissions”. This translates into global warming, disastrous climate change, and destruction on all scales of existence in the long run. The challenge is to keep the roads running while eliminating the CO2 emissions from the scenario. This is exactly where the latest innovation in the go-green culture comes into play, Electric Vehicles (EVs).
The electrification of electric vehicles in a lower Green House Gas scenario (where the carbon costs are also high to support the shift) can result in a 77% reduction of emissions by 2050, in comparison to 2015 levels . Such spectacular outcomes of zero-emission EVs can play a huge part in promoting efficient movability and a sustainable transport model.

In addition to this, Electric Vehicles have a simple framework with a compact engine and are cost-effective in terms of maintenance as compared to traditional combustion vehicles. EVs can be charged at home or even at parking spots with charging stations. They are user-friendly requiring no switching of gears, zero vibration, and no sense of fuel smell.
Considering this ground-breaking innovation, Reon Energy has decided to tap into this segment and play its part to protect the environment against all odds. Reon Energy has joined hands with Redco International in Qatar to create the first, one-of-its-kind, solar bus charging depot in the Middle East. It is a 5.3 MW solar power project based in Lusail, Qatar. The strategic objective of the project is integration with the public transportation sector to clean energy, reduce carbon emissions and improve the climate situation in Qatar. Furthermore, the project would enable the facilitation of 23700 football fans across 241 buses during the FIFA World Cup 2022 and envisions extending beyond it.
Remarkably, this mega-scale project has broken all records and has been established as the largest bus charging station in the Guinness Book of World Records. This milestone is indeed impressive for Reon Energy, and there are many more to come. As we, at Reon, solely believe in going above and beyond across the universe of solar-generated energy to achieve the vision of a carbon-free atmosphere
