Changhua County to introduce driverless buses powered by green energy
Taiwan Trade Center, Bucharest




Changhua County, located in Central Taiwan, is planning to introduce driverless buses running to and from the local high speed rail station and the Changhua Xizhou Park in 2018.

The system will be powered exclusively by wind and solar energy, said Changhua County Magistrate Wei Ming-ku.

A 9-kilometer dedicated bus lane will connect the station to the park, where the county's annual flower festival is held, to accommodate the buses which will carry 12 passengers per trip, Wei said.

"Changhua is home to world-class green energy and this project will perfectly demonstrate the integration of green energy and smart vehicles," Wei said.

The idea is to use off-shore wind and solar energy to power the fleet made up of 20 buses, which can travel at speeds of up to 40 kilometers per hour, Wei explained.

The system will be operated under a vehicle-to-grid (V2G) approach, which means electricity flows between car batteries and the electricity distribution network, depending on supply and demand.
