Our cities are growing rapidly and so are the challenges to make them liveable. Most of the cities have already started facing challenges in meeting the needs of their growing urban populations, including for housing, transportation, energy systems, and other infrastructure. Urbanization causes increasing problems with traffic congestion leading to reduced mobility and rising CO2 emissions from road traffic.
In crowded emerging Asian market like India, Public transport like Autos and Taxis have got a bad reputation with governments & Environmental Activists fretting about congestion, smog & Pollution. Although these primitive vehicles often provide jobs for the poor and it’s a cheap form of transport for small businesses; however, pollution from these Autos is becoming increasingly problematic.
These Autos are can never be green, because such transport often which burn oil, lacks catalytic converters and is poorly maintained, lightweight two-stroke gasoline-powered three Wheeler’s cough up roughly 13 times more lung-damaging polluting than low-emission engines like four-stroke and compressed natural gas (CNG) models, However the result on the carbon footprint of newer CNG models may not be much better than the gasoline models. Such dust kills —both ending and shortening the lives of poor people who are most exposed to smoke, Fortunately, there are even cleaner options than CNG or four-stroke upgrades and that is.
Electric rickshaws, solar E-Rickshaws & Electric Auto or Electric 3 Wheeler
Electric rickshaws (also called “E-rickshaws”) are becoming more popular for cost effective & green public transport and goods carriage. They are slowly but strongly becoming an integral role in the transportation systems of emerging economies as clean energy creating a lasting and harmonious environment. There is hope that a green rickshaw could actual change people’s opinions.
