Electric Cars vs Bikes: What Are the Key Areas to Look at When it Comes To Sustainability?

If you’re looking for a new vehicle, it might be time to consider an electric model. These are environmentally responsible alternatives to cars that use fossil fuels and represent a significant step forwards in protecting the world around us. However, choosing between an electric car and a bike is a difficult process in itself. In this article, we compare the two, discovering the key areas that can help you to choose the most suitable option for you.

Vertical Solar Systems Reduce the Need for Electricity Storage

Solar energy is not subject to supply bottlenecks, is cheap and CO₂-neutral. In order to achieve a maximum energy yield, solar systems are usually installed facing south with an angle of inclination of 20 to 35 degrees. As a result, a lot of electricity is generated primarily in summer and at noon. In the future, renewable energies are to completely replace fossil fuels – a major challenge.
