The “Study on Technical System of the Life Cycle of Battery Electric Buses” follows the life cycle stations of battery electric buses, from its procurement, charging, operation, maintenance, to the decommissioning of batteries. It provides a technical guide for stakeholders in each of the procedures to achieve safety, efficiency, and sustainability. As part of the study, eight case cities covering various geographic area and social-economic level were identified: Zhengzhou, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Jinan, Guangzhou, Shenyang, Yinchuan, and Xi’an. Through surveys and interviews, the study collected first-hand data on the challenges, solutions, and best practices in these cities. Based on literature review, comparative analyses, field study, and expert consultations, the study then provides recommendations for all relevant stakeholders.
On October 29 2021, the National Determined Contribution Transport Initiative For Asia (NDC-TIA) project, together with the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC) jointly held the workshop “Climate Targets and Impacts in the Transport Sector in China”. The workshop aimed to facilitate international experience sharing on climate strategies, targets and policy making in the transport sector and to provide a platform for relevant stakeholders to discuss the pathway towards achieving the climate targets in the transport sector, with a focus on four key areas (energy, road freight, aviation and shipping)
