Workshop on New Energy Vehicles and Autonomous Technologies


The workshop titled “New Energy Vehicle Policies, Practices, and Autonomous Vehicles” was held in Beijing from January 30 to 31, 2018.

The workshop was jointly organized by the World Bank, China Transport News, Energy Foundation, GIZ and World Resources Institute. It is part of the Bank’s project titled Reducing Large-City Congestion Carbon under the initiative of Global Environment Facility (GEF).

Sixteen distinguished experts, from the World Bank, World Resources Institute, Society of Automotive Engineers of China, AnKai Bus and other organizations, shared their insights and exchanged ideas on the promotion of new energy vehicles and the future of self-piloting technologies. More than 100 representatives from transport administrative agencies, research institutions, and the private sector attended this event and joined the discussions on reforms and innovations in the new energy vehicle industry.

According to the director at the Transport Service Department of the Ministry of Transport, the promotion and application of new energy vehicles is key to China’s strategies of developing green transportation, building a powerful transportation country and a smart society. By the end of 2017, there were over 300,000 new energy vehicles nationwide, and the number is estimated to double by 2020.

Cui Hongyang, a researcher at the International Council on Clean Transportation, suggested that various economic incentives with “visible” benefits to customers are critical for the further promotion of new energy vehicles. Zhang Haitao, from the Shenzhen Urban Transport Planning and Design Institute, presented his study on five cities including Beijing and Shenzhen and concluded pure electric buses substantially saved energy and reduced emissions. According to data he gathered in 2016, the energy consumption of a pure electric bus is from 80.8 kWh to 124.2 kWh per100 kilometer, a reduction of 65 % to 80 % compared to traditional vehicles.

Nupur Gupta, the Indian GEF project manager, introduced measures adopted by the Indian government to accelerate the application and production of electric vehicles. He also mentioned India is setting up more charging piles by integrating cutting-edge technologies. Marcus Wagner, the project manager at the GIZ, said Germany is conducting researches on autonomous driving and connected vehicles, but remained cautious of a large-scale application of driverless cars.
