The Results Report Meeting for the New Public Transportation System Demonstration Project with Electric Tricycles in the Philippines Was Convened

November 9, 2018

NEDO has completed a new public transportation system demonstration project combining electric tricycles and an electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem held in Intramuros in the Philippines together with the Department of Trade and Industry in the Philippines, the Intramuros Administration and SoftBank Corp. On October 30, a results report meeting and EV test drive event was convened with the presence of stakeholders from Japanese and Philippine government agencies.

This demonstration used an EV ecosystem to achieve punctual operation of scheduled services, management of the on-time dispatch rate, management of EV charging and standardization of the system technology. NEDO demonstrated that it is possible to reduce energy consumption by more than 85% compared to the introduction of conventional gasoline tricycles as a public transportation system. SoftBank Corp. has been continuing operations at this demonstration project site. The results of this will be utilized to introduce and popularize new public transportation systems in the Philippines and Asia.
