You could perhaps use an electric bicycle, electric moped, or a 1+1 two-seater like a Renault Twizy:
All cheaper options than a full sized electric car and still pretty practical to get around in.
2nd best option IMO would be hemp oil diesel. While not the best on emissions the fuel would offset carbon during production.
Neither option will be able to defeat the oil industry
Battery storage is too inefficient to do at scale but a battery in every home with solar panel roofs and intelligent grids would do quite a bit to offset issues.
Again the companies would fight and prevent this... in fact they are fighting solar successfully even in states like AZ
