Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

The use of electric vehicles (EVs) will be promoted in Luang Prabang, one of the World Heritage towns.
The GHG emission reductions are achieved by replacing automobiles and motorcycles equipped with internal combustion engines (ICEs) with EVs, since the EVs are fueled by Lao electricity grid mainly composed of hydropower.
After the Luang Prabang EV promotion project, further EV use will be promoted nation-wide in the future.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

180 tCO2/yr (for the introduction of 100 EVs)
→ When all of public transport vehicles and other vehicles in the protected area of Luang Prabang are replaced by EVs, expected GHG emission reductions are 3,771tCO2/yr.
