The partners of this year's competition are the Berlin Agency for Electromobility eMO and the Museum STORY OF BERLIN.
By 1912, there were far more ELECTROMOBILES than vehicles with internal combustion engines. Electric cars were popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century, until advances in internal combustion engine technology and mass production of cheaper gasoline vehicles led to a decline in the use of electric drive vehicles. A renaissance in electric vehicle manufacturing has occurred due to the decline of global oil reserves. The European Union will announce plans to ban all fossil fuel-powered cars in Europe by 2050. Yet limited crude oil resources and the climate change are forcing a change in thinking.
The 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall will come on 9 November 2014. After several weeks of civil unrest, the East German government announced that all GDR citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin. The anniversary is an occasion to offer this historical event as a special theme for the contest. The peaceful revolution went down in history and current events show that the human desire for freedom is endless.
