The circulation of electric vehicles contributes to the conservation of the environment through the use of clean energy in public transport.
The minister of the Environment, Elsa Galarza, participated in the presentation of the first electric bus for public transport in Peru, which does not generate pollutants during circulation, will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 40%, and will produce minimal noise, said El Comercio today.
According to the minister, this electric bus will provide environmental benefits by not emitting particulate materials, thus improving the air quality. It will also reduce noise pollution since it doesn’t produce the engine noise traditional buses generate.
“In addition, it uses 100% recyclable batteries, and consumes less energy per kilometer traveled than vehicles that use fuel”, Galarza explained. She also added that “From the Ministry of the Environment we are working in coordination with the private sector and other entities of the public sector to implement mitigation actions to climate change”.
The circulation of the electric bus in Peru shows that it is possible to perform daily actions related to transportation, contributing to the conservation of the environment through the use of clean energy in public transport.
The use of clean technologies, such as these electric transport vehicles, is one of the measures that have been identified in the Multisectorial Working Group for Nationally Determined Contributions with the objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the energy and transport sectors, explained El Comercio.
