In a world where energy security is of paramount importance, the emergence of electric vehicles and alternative fuels is playing a huge role.
The electric vehicle (EV) and alternative fuels market is gathering pace, and EVs are an increasingly viable option for individuals and business fleets. While there remain some barriers to full implementation of EV use, such as lack of charging infrastructure and its interoperability, the market continues to grow every year.
