In order to ensure the take-up of electric mobility users need to be helped but not only financially. Some suggestions: 1) All new buildings/ apartment blocks and office should be obliged by law to have a number of charging posts in their respective garage or pay a hefty fine that will go towards charging stations in the locality. 2) Office blocks should be obliged to provide showers and secure parking spaces for bikes. 3) Long term and open ended/ongoing grants should be made available for the purchase of electric bikes. 4) Bus lanes need to be introduced without delay. 5) Siemens have teamed up with Ubitricity to provide charging points on street lamp posts. This technology is available. Malta needs thousands of such charging stations/points and not a trickle a year. 6) Electric scooters need dedicated parking spaces across every locality as has been done in London. Photo attached.
