- Germany has a catch plan in terms of e-buses
According to a report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), electric cusses 2019 will be amazing 270.000 barrel saving diesel requirement – every day. The vast majority of electric buses is located in China, where most major cities approach the 100% electrically operated public transport.
China currently operates 99 percent of all e-buses worldwide
Buses play a central role in public transport around the world. Displacement due to their size and constant use 1.000 electric buses after calculations of the BNEF daily 500 barrel diesel needs. For comparison: 1.000 electro cars displace 15 barrel oil requirements per day. It is about that today almost 400.000 electric breads are in operation, 99 percent of them in China.
Shenzhen, a fast-growing big city with 12 million inhabitants, is pioneer in Puncto electric breads, with a fleet of 16.000. More than 30 Chinese cities have plans to reach 100 percent of public transport by 2020.
E-Buses: curse or blessing?
Looking at the calculation of SingularityHub.Com shows that e-buses are at first glance a true blessing. Based on the year 2019, E-Buses will have saved 98.55 million barrels diesel (270.000 barrel per day x 365 days a year.)
Converted in US gallons, this will be about 4.139 billion gallons diesel a year. According to EPA, each gallon emits diesel fuel 10.180 grams (just over 10 kilograms) CO2. This means that this corresponds to a saving of more than 42 million tonnes of CO2.
Now to the curse: the electricity. This is usually made of coal-fired power plants in China, while the production costs of electric vehicles are both economical and energetically tend to be higher, partly due to their battery systems. The subsequent recycling of the batteries should not be ignored.
In short, how much more environmentally friendly an electric vehicle is compared to a diesel-powered, depends on a variety of factors. Although it is difficult to generalize, numbers from Germany show that a medium-sized electric car at average useful life of 13 years, much CO2 is friendlier than a corresponding combustion.
In addition to the CO2 saving by electrically powered vehicles you especially benefit from the lower volume in everyday cities. This should be included in the circumferential consideration as well.
E-Buses contribute to the expansion of renewable energies
Furthermore, it is so that the use of E vehicles also contributes to the development of renewable energies. China is a good example, as it invests heavily in wind energy. In addition, it is so that E-Buses can contribute to stabilizing the energy network.
They could also provide a cost-effective way to seriously increase the energy storage capacity when using them in the well-known Vehicle-2 grid approach.
Germany has a catch plan in terms of e-buses
Especially in terms of electric cusses, Germany has recently established, such as Federal Minister of Transport Andreas Scheuer (CSU) last stated: too many electro cusses of German manufacturers are “still in the study phase, which is unfortunately a bit late”. The manufacturers would have to be faster. “We have no time – and we have to use.”The necessary funding programs already give it. Up to 80 percent of additional costs compared to a conventional diesel can be covered.
