Li-ion Battery Powered Buses Will Serve Olympic Beijing

english.Chinabuses.com 2008-6-03

About 50 buses powered by Li-ion battery will be put into service for the Beijing Olympics this year, running a total distance of 10.4 kilometers for athletes and officials, according to a Beijing official.

All the 50 buses are solely powered by a kind of Li-ion battery which is different from various of existing hybrid electric vehicles, according to Sun Fengchun, an electric car expert with Beijing Institute of Technology. The institute launched the designing and research work of the electric bus in 2000 and so far a manufacturing plant of Beijing Public Transports has assembled seven model buses which have passed tests. The 50 electric buses in Beijing Olympics would be the largest number of its kind in the games, Sun said. The Beijing Organizing Committee has allocated an area of 5,000 square meters of recharge station for the buses and a parking area in southwest Beijing, he added. The Li-ion power battery is used in vehicles with a higher energy density, comparatively smaller cubage and longer span for repetitive use. Moreover, its high efficiency and zero emission have made itself a major subject of battery research and development at home and abroad. Since 2001, two electric buses have been used in 121 route of Beijing bus for test operation.

During the games, 50 lithium battery-powered buses will shuttle athletes and officials between the Dreamworld and competition venues. The zero emission, low noise and environmentally friendly bus matches well the theme of a Green Olympics. [Xinhua]

Hundreds of alternative-fuel vehicles go Olympic

About 500 vehicles that run on a range of alternative fuels were handed over to the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the 29th Olympiad on Friday. They'll provide what's been billed as zero-emission transportation during the Games.

According to Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang, the vehicles include 53 electric buses, 25 hybrid buses, 75 hybrid taxis, 20 fuel-cell cars and more than 320 other electric vehicles.

The eco-friendly traffic plan for the Beijing Games is said to feature the largest range of models and most advanced technology in the event's history. Many renowned auto research organizations, universities and companies are involved in this project, including Tsinghua and Tongji universities, Chery Automobile, Chang'an Motors and others.

Wan said, "As for the development of science and technology, it is not just an exhibit during the Olympics, it is also the start of an industry."

Among the vehicles, six car models from six companies are waiting for approval to start manufacturing.

Wan said if the vehicles worked well during the Games, their success would take China's alternative-fuel vehicle industry to a higher level and make the vehicle industry more internationally competitive.

The vehicles will remain in service after the Games, Wan said.
