Beijing Converting 70,000 Taxis to Electric Vehicles


http://www.futureofeverything.io/201...tric-vehicles/


Electric vehicles (EVs) are expanding in availability and efficiency all over the world. Phasing out fossil fuelled powered transport is a long complex process. In Beijing, a city with world-beating smog problems, the 70,000 strong fleet of taxis are going electric. All newly registered or replaced vehicles within Beijing have to be electric taxis. The cost of the program will be around $1.3 billion, a drop in the ocean relatively speaking. An electric taxi costs around $20,000 in China and they’re immensely popular.

Great. For a country that is projected by the EIA to still generate over 50% of its electricity using coal by 2040...

Then again, the IEA has constantly underestimated the growth of solar power for the last decade or so. They're a little too conservative with their estimates.

Also, 50 % coal means 50 % not-coal, which is a huge leap forward from today. Either way, a coal power plant has much higher efficiency than an internal combustion engine, and it's easier to filter the emissions of one power plant than a million tailpipes...

Electric cars: China’s highly charged power play




The government reinforced its position in September when it announced a system of steadily increasing quotas that will reward carmakers for producing ever more battery-powered vehicles starting in 2019, while forcing them to buy EV “credits” from other producers for every conventional car they make.

For a country that produces more than half of its power from coal (that's likely to continue until 2040, even with the robust renewable power growth recently that will continue), it is more about self-sufficiency than it is about the environment.

Shell opens its first UK electric vehicle charging points

Royal Dutch Shell has opened its first charging points for electric vehicles at UK filling stations in a further sign of the Anglo-Dutch group’s diversification beyond fossil fuels.

Drivers will be able to recharge EVs at 10 locations, mostly in London and south-east England, by the end of the year.

Guangzhou new energy buses 7777 (including pure electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, non-plug-in hybrids and LNG) , accounting for 54.06% of the city's total number of buses.

In order to speed up the upgrade of pure electric buses, Guangzhou Municipal Development and Reform Commission in the "Guangzhou new energy vehicle development program (2017 - 2020)" indicated that Guangzhou will reach 100% use of pure electric buses by the end of 2020.
