Traditional mobility mostly relies on fossil fuels (e.g. the oil), but they will run out. Before the arrival of the depletion, we must get rid of our mobility dependence on the oil and prepare ourselves well for the advent of that day. Globally under urgent environmental protection mission and further tension between energy supply and demand, the transition of vehicular powertrains combined with the change or yet the revolution in mobility pattern is the trend of the times. Some thoughts and prospect are given here about the mobility pattern and its promotion. Similar to the Internet, a kind of Enternet (energy exchange network) could be constructed for the grid power to be shared and selected by energy users, in which distributed renewable power plants play a role as a "network terminal", and large-scale power plants (e.g. nuclear power plant, large-scale hydropower) as a "network server". It is here proposed to promote and introduce electric mobility in the near of renewable network terminals.
