Tajikistan uses hydropower to generate more than 95% of its electricity, and there is significant room to increase output. However, the nation is heavily reliant on imported fuel due to a paucity of fossil fuel supplies. These elements make switching from fossil fuels to electricity in the transportation sector particularly alluring.
Tajikistan can save money by switching to electric vehicles, but doing so will require specific policies due to greater upfront costs, a lack of infrastructure (such as electricity charging facilities), and a lack of knowledge about electric vehicles.
The Tajikistan Electric Vehicle Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
During the course of a vehicle’s lifespan, expensive batteries may need to be replaced in electric vehicles, which has a greater initial investment cost. But while battery quality is improving in terms of deterioration rates and power storage, costs are only falling by less than 10% annually. These elements lessen the capital cost disparity between fossil fuel and electric automobiles.
Because they are more energy efficient and require less maintenance, electric vehicles are less expensive to operate. With reduced vibration and moving parts, they also last longer.
The category of the car and the quantity of operated electric vehicles will determine the actual cost, though. Due to lengthy waiting periods for replacement parts, small vehicle fleets pay greater maintenance and stoppage expenses.
When compared to the diesel Euro V buses the city just purchased, hybrid trolleybuses and battery-powered e-buses with quick charging technologies have lower total expenses than diesel vehicles (slow-charging battery e-buses have slightly higher costs). For some routes, hybrid trolleybuses and battery-powered e-buses are appropriate alternatives.
