NEDO and the Malaysian city of Putrajaya, the new center of Malaysian's politics and government, have agreed to collaborate on a project to demonstrate and expand a smart community based on EV (electric vehicle) buses, and have concluded a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
The project is intended to carry out the introduction and demonstration of EV buses utilizing Japanese energy storage and charging technologies in Putrajaya for two years starting in FY2015. Through this project, NEDO will work towards upgrading Putrajaya’s urban transportation into an intelligent system while aiming for the wide-area deployment of urban transportation package projects.
