Living an environmentally friendly lifestyle
The development of green energy mass transit tools is the most direct way for the general public to participate in carbon reduction activities. We can embody the goal of peaceful coexistence with nature by changing the way we "move" in life.
According to statistics, nearly 50% of the world's population lives in cities, and these people make up 75% of the total energy consumption and contribute up to 80% of carbon emissions. Since 2011, the government has invested NTD18.46 billion over four consecutive years to implement urban renewal plans to better respond to environmental protection needs, and encourage the development of a smart green energy industry. The green energy industry covers a wide range of sources, including construction, water resources, solar energy, wind power, electric energy, etc., and the one that is most relevant to the general public is electric energy.
Taiwan's power coverage rate is close to 99%. Because of its convenience, the concept of "energy saving" has not yet formed for the general public. In recent years, due to the gradual depletion of global energy and the continuous increase in oil and gas prices, "energy saving and carbon footprint reduction" has become a global movement, and the "electric" industry has also flourished.
The development of electric energy mass transit vehicles is the most direct way for the general public to participate in energy conservation and carbon footprint reduction. We can embody the goal of peaceful coexistence with nature by changing the way we "move " in life. For example, the large EV bus launched by RAC consumes about 1.3 kwh of electricity per kilometer of travel, and the current electricity price is about 2.02 NTD per kilowatt hour (90% off peak +10% high peak), and the cost per kilometer is 2.62 NTD; diesel-powered vehicles can travel about 2.4 kilometers per liter of oil, and the current oil price is 32 NTD / liter, which means the cost per kilometer is 13.33 yuan.
That is, the EV bus produced by RAC can save about 6 times on fuel consumption. This is the core reason why RAC is actively investing in green energy vehicles.
