In perspective of greenhouse gases or air pollutants, LNG vehicles are not a realistic method for reducing emissions. The Netherlands led the way with 81 percent electric buses, but efforts to decarbonize and reduce air pollution is too slow across the continent.
It demonstrates that, regardless of where you are, green action is feasible with political will at the city level. Too many towns and countries, however, are not doing enough. Spain, Belgium, and Austria are lagging behind with fewer than 5% zero-emission bus purchases, while Ireland and Greece acquired none at all.
The need to minimise urban pollution and reliance on fossil fuels, as well as expanding national government initiatives toward sustainable public transportation as a major element driving the growth of the Netherlands electric bus market is the increased adoption of electric cars in the country as a result of rising awareness of the green movement and cohesive government agreements.
In the Netherlands, for example, the transport authorities signed an administrative agreement on zero-emission public transportation in 2016, stating that by 2025, all new buses will be ZE ‘at the exhaust’.
BYD is a leading mobiliser of the various explorer oriented electric vehicle manufacturer requirements in the market. The BYD J6 electric bus has a seating capacity of 29 people and can be charged in three hours for a range of up to 90 miles.
In the event of a power outage, these electric buses may also serve as backup generators. On Kyoto’s famous sightseeing bus line, Keihan Bus and Kansai Electric Power plan to execute a five-year trial operation with the first batch of four BYD J6 buses. The company is in charge of optimising electric bus operating as well as energy charging and discharging management.
