Nowadays, electric bicycles have become a common mode of transportation, cheap, easy to dock and fast, making it a good partner for more and more commuters and cycling enthusiasts.
And, as a low-carbon and environmentally friendly way to travel, many governments have introduced many policies to encourage people to use bicycles.
As the best environmentally friendly option for everyday transport, e-bikes are becoming increasingly popular worldwide, but what is their carbon footprint and how do they compare to fossil-fueled cars?
A recent study conducted by CREDS researchers at the University of Leeds revealed the following findings.
– Electric-assisted bicycles (e-bikes), when used to replace car travel, have the ability to reduce automotive carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by up to 50% in England (around 30 million tonnes per year).
– The greatest opportunity is in rural and suburban areas: urban dwellers already have many low-carbon travel options, so the greatest impact would be to encourage their use outside urban areas.
– E-bikes have the potential to help those most affected by rising transportation costs.
Against the backdrop of increased global climate deterioration, it has become a world consensus to promote low-carbon concepts and develop a low-carbon economy. China, as a responsible country in the world, has clearly put forward the goal of “carbon peaking and carbon neutral” and formulated a clear strategy for this purpose, namely the “Double Carbon Strategy”.
Recently, SGS, an internationally recognized inspection, accreditation, testing and certification body, attended the anniversary ceremony of the R&D Center & Laboratory of Huizhou Ruijinxing Technology Co. During the ceremony, Chen Jianan, Head of SGS Light Industry Product Service South China, awarded ADO a QTL (Qualified Testing Lab) laboratory qualification plaque and signed a strategic
cooperation framework agreement for future cooperation on “low-carbon mobility”.
This is the first QTL laboratory accreditation certificate granted by SGS in the electric mobility industry, and the first low-carbon project agreement signed in the industry. The QTL laboratory qualification not only marks the recognition and affirmation of ADO by international authoritative third-party institutions, but also witnesses another achievement of ADO in the field of bicycles and electric power-assisted vehicles, and highlights its rapid development status in the industry.
SGS, as an internationally recognized inspection, accreditation, testing and certification body, is the greenhouse gas verification body and the first batch of energy management system certification bodies recorded by the domestic commission, and has been committed to the field of energy conservation and emission reduction, providing low-carbon integrated solutions for many well-known customers. sgs professional team can provide efficient and perfect service sgs light industrial product service professional team can use their rich experience to provide enterprises with The SGS Light Industrial Services team can provide professional and pragmatic services for companies to act in a carbon neutral manner.
SGS and ADO signed the “low carbon travel” carbon cooperation strategic cooperation, the two sides will continue to maintain close communication, give full play to the advantages of their respective fields, more in-depth and extensive cooperation to help accelerate the low-carbon transformation of the bicycle and electric bicycle industry, and jointly promote the green low-carbon high-quality development of both sides, and make a greater contribution to the green development of the industry. greater contribution to the industry’s green.
