China’s continuously growing traffic volume, especially in individual transport, not only causes environmental concerns, it also puts pressure on China to address its strong dependence on oil imports. The Chinese government promotes the development of electro-mobility and alternative fuels as a means to decrease this dependency and increase energy efficiency in the transport sector. With zero tailpipe emissions electric vehicles also have strong potential to improve urban air quality.
To be sustainable electro-mobility needs to be both environmentally friendly and safe. This is not only about electric vehicles (EVs). It also means fostering renewable energies in the national grid and designing integrated strategies for charging and maintaining electric vehicles. Innovative recycling plans and new mobility concepts can enhance the environmental impact of electric vehicles over their life cycle.
We offer technical expertise and support on:
• Scenario development for environmental and climate accounting
• Strategies to integrate EVs into sustainable urban transport systems
• Integration of EVs into fuel economy standards
• Concepts for battery recycling
