New Study on Public Policies for Electromobility in Urban Fleets in Brazil
In December 2018, the study International Evaluation of Public Policies for Electromobility in Urban Fleets has been released. It contextualizes international experiences in public policies for electromobility in urban fleets in Brazil. It is available in both English and Portuguese.
According to the evaluation, powering urban buses with electricity is adequate to Brazil because it combines the benefits of electrification with investments in urban mobility. Additionally, promoting urban mobility by incentives to mass transit instead of individual cars results in greater environmental benefits, such as reduced greenhouse gas emissions in urban areas.
The publication was developed by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), by demand of German-Brazilian project promoting electromobility (PROMOB-e), a cooperation between the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Brazilian Ministry for Industry, Foreign Trade and Services (MDIC).
