Project Summary

This project proposes a model for the residential emergency power supply of E-scooters with ESS (Energy Storage System) in APEC economies.

The innovative techniques can: (1) assist cities in gaining access to modern and clean energy; (2) optimize the utilization of clean energy in the area; (3) enhance residential power reliability; (4) minimize fuel cost. This project will implement a report, workshop, Hybrid 2-day seminar, online training course and an innovative site visit to present the outcomes.

These activities will invite experts from APEC EWG/EGNRET delegates and private sectors. The R&D of Energy Storage System integrate the E-scooters  will be executed in March 2022– June 2023. A one day online training will be held in August 2022 and a two-day Hybrid seminar (joint IEEE vehicular, power and energy conference, IEEE VPEC) will be held in Febuary 2023 in Taichung City, Chinese Taipei. A research report on ESS collaborative innovation will be presented on EWG in June 2023.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: This project is to share the innovation research of energy storage systems (ESS) in E-scooters with varying technical specifications across the APEC economies. The project’s outcome can benefit E-scooter users, living in the APEC region, and provide EV innovative models for economies without such programs. The ESS will raise awareness, expand the understanding of the opportunities of electric vehicles (EVs) within the APEC economies, improve the circularity of green energy, and meet APEC’s green city goals.

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: According to the Energy Efficiency and Low Carbon Measures Sub-Fund guidelines, this project meets the majority of the criteria, especially in: (1) promoting clean energy practices; (2) advancing the applications of energy-efficient technologies; (3) improving capacity-building and knowledge (through our workshop and case study) in technical, politic, and operational energy-efficiency practices.

Relevance – Capacity Building: This project will host a site-visit that will display ESS in E-scooters development and will contribute to the enhancement of APEC member economics’ capacities within areas of efficient,  sustainable energy, and share-transport solutions. It will encourage APEC economies to participate in the regional economy through (1) solution-oriented knowledge enhancing and training of ministerial- and local-level government officials; (2) increasing process-oriented knowledge on multi-level government integration concerning policy and project implementation; (3) enhancing capacities within the participating economies and encourage replication in other economies by knowledge sharing; (4) ensure effective succession planning and skills and knowledge transfer processes; (5) capitalize on opportunities for resource/cost sharing, learning, collaboration whether bilaterally or multi-laterally e.g. secondment of experts or frequent exchange of personnel. This will also mitigate risks of duplication with other efforts in building capacities funded by external donors or multilateral agencies.

The project will build the capacity of several stakeholders, including (i) Policy-makers (economies’ representatives in the EELCER) through active engagement in the preparation of policy recommendations: consultation workshop, one-on-one interviews, etc.; (ii) Utilities of APEC economies: will gain a better understanding of the impacts of integrating E-scooters and ESS, and also  PVs in distribution networks and benefit from technical recommendations; (iii) Manufacturers of EVs and E-scooters: they will benefit from and contribute to the formulation of technical recommendations for improving the reliability and stability of their products, as well as their lifetime. While women are not a specific target group of the project, the PO will endeavor to maximize their participation and to give opportunities for their expression (cross-cutting all above categories of stakeholders) throughout the project duration.

Objectives

Our objectives aim to share the residential emergency power supply of E-scooters with ESS (Energy Storage System) new technical model of ESS in E-scooters and build the capacity of project participants through workshops and researches to better support the APEC-wide issue of developing green cities as mentioned in the 2016 APEC High-Level Urbanization Forum. Meanwhile, it will promote the transition of cities towards green, environment-friendly, dynamic, resilient, and sustainable communities by encouraging city developments for new energy, new energy-smart technologies, or industries, and building energy-efficient low-carbon cities or towns. Additionally, it will help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) taking advantage of green growth opportunities.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC:  This project is based on the  understanding  the importance  in the following declarations:

(1) The  “APEC Growth Strategy” adopted by APEC Leaders in 2010 to achieve growth that is balanced, inclusive, sustainable, innovative, and secure. The goals for sustainable growth, include, “enhance energy security and promote energy-efficiency and low-carbon policies” and “promoting private investment in green industries and production processes”.

(2) The APEC Energy Ministers on Energy Ministerial Meeting in 2010 is addressing Renewable energy technologies, including solar, wind, geothermal, and bioenergy for electricity and biofuels for transport, are declining in cost and diversifying the energy supply mix. The advanced technologies of electric vehicles (EVs) can greatly reduce both oil consumption and carbon emissions.

(3) The APEC Regulatory Cooperation Advancement Mechanism on Trade-Related Standards and Technical Regulations (ARCAM) is addressing Smart Grid interoperability standards in 2011 and is encouraging the development of plug-and-play technologies, such as EV infrastructure, integration of renewable energy sources, and distributed generation and storage devices.

(4) The First APEC High-level Urbanization forum goal in 2016 to develop green cities in Ningbo, to meet the APEC EWG’s goal to advance clean energy, to promote clean and efficient energy sources in support of energy-smart and low carbon communities, and to incorporate low-emissions development strategies into APEC’s economic growth plan towards progressing cleaner energy sources for sustainable development.

(5) This project also aligns with APEC’s goal to double the use of renewable energy sources by 2030, and meets the APEC green growth goal in support of energy-smart low-carbon communities, and to incorporate low-emissions development strategies into APEC’s economic growth plans towards progressing cleaner energy sources for sustainable development.

(6) The APEC Ministerial Meeting in 2017 Viet Nam is underlining the significance of developing a safe, secure, resilient, efficient, and sustainable transport system. Therefore, the meeting is noted that welcome initiatives to adopt new technologies in the transport sector and the development of a transport connectivity map to emphasize the building capacity in this regard.

(7) This project is aligned with EWG's 2019-2023 strategic plan on Promote Energy Efficiency and Low-carbon Communities to develop to strengthen domestic and regional energy security and lower the carbon intensity of energy supply and use across the region, facilitated by information and data exchanges, joint research and development, and open trade and investment. 

Eventually, The project achieves this mission through  workshops, seminars, exchanging views, demonstrations, peer reviews, research, data collection and analysis, and dissemination of information. This project will also build the capacity of APEC members in peer-learning with professionals, private sectors, APEC economies representatives, and private sector participants from APEC member economies to join the seminar. The seminar gives opportunities to interact and build bilateral in APEC Region to meet capacity-building that needs for APEC developing economies. This project improves their analytical, technical, operational, and policy capacity in energy efficiency and overall energy literacy and learning the model of  innovative technology deployment of clean and efficient energy source and usage.

Alignment – Forum: This project aims to involve several APEC groups that have direct mandates in one or more areas by facilitating the generation of knowledge products and capacity building that address sustainable and energy-efficient challenges in APEC cities. According to APEC EWG’s Proposed Work Plan for 2020, this project aligns with EWG’s goal to accelerate efforts on green energy applied to the transportation sector. In addition, the project’s objectives also meet the goal in the recent EWG Five-Year Strategic Plan to develop effective policy recommendations for facilitating the exchange of energy-smart and low carbon policies, to devise practices, and tools among APEC member economies to promote the development of energy-smart and low carbon communities across the region, and to progress towards reducing APEC’s 2005 aggregate energy intensity by 45 percent by the year 2035. These tools can assist APEC Member Economies to promote long-term economic innovation, growth, and resiliency and build sustainable cities/communities. They include AD, TPTWG, EWG, ENGRET, PPWE, LSIF, PPSTI. Given that this project enables all of these groups to progress their mandated agendas, this project t is in close alignment with APEC’s priorities.

3.  Output 3: Project Report

The final report will be included with the results of the researches, outcomes and recommendations from the seminar. Besides, it will highlight the application of ESS best practice, disseminating this innovative technique among APEC communities in attempt to developing an alternative clean energy model to those who needed technical support. The table contents of the report will contain abstract, introduction, activity record, benefit assessment ,and discussion and future suggestions. The length of the final project report will be about 15 pages, and the report will be published in accordance with APEC Publication Guidelines and circulated to stakeholders.

Outcomes: The following outcomes are expected:

(1) Relevant APEC economy agencies who are unfamiliar with E-scooters  technology will gain access to the knowledge needed to consider deployment in their energy planning. It will encourage APEC economies to participate in the regional economy through i) solution-oriented knowledge enhancing and training of ministerial- and local-level government officials; ii) encourage replication in other economies This may be measured by: i) a follow up survey of workshop participants, and ii) download the technical information for key reports used in the workshop;

(2) A number of APEC economies will be able to introduce energy storage system (ESS) technology in their public policies and development plans for increased renewable energy, and energy storage. It will be able to enhance capacity building and gain economic benefit through knowledge transfer process by reducing external cost. This may be measured in energy agency policy documents;

(3) This innovative research results  will be discussed among developers and civil society organizations, furthermore raising awareness of the opportunities of E-scooters within the APEC economies since ESS has lower social and environmental impacts. In this regard, it is expected to see energy transition policy supported by civil society stakeholders and public opinions in a move toward a sustainable energy future. This may be measured through reports of positive dialogue among developers and civil society organizations.

(4) This project will contribute to the enhancement of APEC member economics’ capacities within areas of efficient,  sustainable energy, and share-transport solutions. It will encourage APEC economies to participate in the regional economy through (1) solution-oriented knowledge enhancing and training of ministerial- and local-level government officials; (2) increasing process-oriented knowledge on multi-level government integration concerning policy and project implementation; (3) enhancing capacities within the participating economies and encourage replication in other economies by knowledge sharing; (4) ensure effective succession planning and skills and knowledge transfer processes; (5) capitalize on opportunities for resource/cost sharing, learning, collaboration whether bilaterally or multi-laterally e.g. secondment of experts or frequent exchange of personnel. This will also mitigate risks of duplication with other efforts in building capacities funded by external donors or multilateral agencies.

Beneficiaries: The primary beneficiaries of this project are mainly from those who would be participate in the capacity building event, such as seminar and site-visit. The key beneficiaries we can determine are as follows:

(1) Utilities:  They will benefit from the technical recommendations on how to integrate PV and  EVs into their networks;

(2) Industry Representatives: including EVs manufacturers as well as regional or economy industry association representatives. They will benefit from increased business opportunities related to the future replacement of utilities’ assets base;

(3) Policymakers: agencies responsible for the promotion of both renewable energy and energy efficiency will be engaged. These policy-makers will receive direct guidelines for the development of policies supporting the integration of EV and rooftop solar installations into the power networks;

(4) While women are not a specific target group of the project, the PO will endeavor to maximize their participation and to give opportunities for their expression (cross-cutting all above categories of stakeholders) throughout the project duration.

This project aims to demonstrate the best practical model for developing the e-scooter on ESS  with the small-scale standalone distributed green energy in the APEC Region. A successful ESS in E-scooter demonstration can assist the APEC stakeholders in making new energy policy, and also assist the private sector (product and service providers) in developing appropriate green energy products and business models for applying the new model mentioned above.

Secondary beneficiaries will be energy, electrical engineering, environmental researches backgrounds respectively. The individual beneficiaries can exchange insights through the seminar event. By doing so knowledge-sharing can be easily transmitted through all the participant in the platform.  With the application of ESS technique installed in the scooter, it could be an alternative power option for residents in  APEC economies, moreover, the region will also benefit from the reduction of fossil fuel-related environmental emissions and their related impact on human health and welfare.

Dissemination

The post-event evaluation of seminar, and the Project Report along with the Technical and policy report, will be announced on APEC, EWG, EGNRET, and association-related EV websites, and by targeting stakeholders in all APEC economies. The outputs will also be delivered directly to international energy-related partners. Both soft and hard copies of the workshop presentations and final technical and policy recommendations report will be prepared and circulated via electronic and digital publishing to each APEC economy and interested stakeholders such as utilities, EVs manufacturers, regulators, and energy policy agencies. The project overseer will also encourage the project consultant to publish the results in an appropriate technical journal and/or present the results at international meetings. There is no intention to sell the outputs coming from this project.

The technical and policy report will be developed as an APEC publication. For both this publication as well as for the workshop materials, copyright will be under APEC. The PO will therefore make sure that APEC Secretariat’s permission is obtained before any of these materials is released on any other platforms.

Gender

Currently around half of Representatives at APEC EGNRET are females, so both male and female Representatives will help guide and implement the project, and also participate in the Workshop alongside the EGNRET 54 meeting. Female experts from private sectors, research institutions, universities, and government entities will be invited as the Workshop speakers. Women from APEC economies will be assigned as workshop participants and presenters.

a) It is expected that the project output would benefit all members of the private and public sectors involved, regardless of gender.

b) A 50% balance between males and females is indeed unrealistic in this industry, and such a perspective has not been identified in the proposal. It is predicted that 40% of the participants in the workshop will be female.

c) The project shall contribute to supporting pillar #3 of women’s economic empowerment on “Skills, capacity building, and health”. In that regard, the project will help develop the knowledge and capacity of participating policymakers and utilities.

d) The project will also support pillar #4 on “Leadership, voice, and agency”, as 4 female speakers (40%) are expected to join the workshop. It could improve information on female consumerism who use EVs and establishing a transportation system that integrates female perspectives while providing feedbacks for transportation safety.

e) The project will  support pillar #5 on “Innovative and Technology”, which could build the residential emergency power supply of E-scooters with ESS (Energy Storage System) in APEC economies.

Risks

The risk of this project is relatively low. The significant risks such as travel restriction, are foreseen to be uncertainty  in regard to sufficient number of participants and quality speakers to the seminar, particularly amid COVID-19.

To ensure that there will be an adequate number of participants to the seminar, the PO will liaise with EWG and its Sub-fora, particularly EGEEC, and co-sponsoring economies to nominate speakers and participants by email 4 months in advance. Amid COVID-19 pandemic, the seminar will be held in virtual, in order to allow the government officers, policymakers, and experts to attend the seminar by remote participation.

Besides, the PO will make the first announcement, invitation and circulate the information circular around 4 months by email before the seminar such that member economies will have sufficient time to nominate appropriate participants to the seminar. To invite quality speakers to attend the seminar, the PO will proactively report the project progress at EWG and EGEEC meetings and make sure member economies understand the details of this project.

The PO will seek APEC member economies assistance, particularly the co-sponsoring economies, EWG and its Sub-fora, and international organizations to identify and nominate appropriate speakers for the seminar. Nevertheless, the PO will make early contact with the potential speakers to increase the chance for them to attend the seminar.

Monitoring and Evaluation

We also intend to implement surveys beyond the time frame of this project (via mail) at the a-and 2-year mark after the completion of the workshop, to assess long-term impacts and the generation of new city-level initiatives resulting from the capacity building from the workshop. This project will collect information from participating members of the in-person workshop through participant sign-in sheets and participant surveys.

Linkages

As previously mentioned, the project aims to involve a number of APEC groups that have direct mandates in one or more areas that this project may influence. They include TPTWG, EWG, ENGRET, and EELCER. Given that this project enables all of these groups to progress their mandated agendas, this project is in close alignment with APEC’s priorities. Additionally, the project will also draw on the information to be represented in the proposed EV conference to be held in Chinese Taipei in 2022. The conference will present a key opportunity to gather information for this project as it is likely to attract EV experts from many APEC economies.

The successful completion of our most recent APEC project in July 2018, EWG13 2016 A, which was titled “Supporting the development and Implementation of Low-Emission Development Strategies (LEDs) in the Transport Sector, focused on energy-efficient strategies for the Transport Sector only, In a subsequent project (EWG 10 2018A), we built upon this expertise and proposed to engage with the Energy sectors as well, to build a roadmap that will lead to a more integrated and comprehensive sustainable solution to the transport sector and green energy sector, however with a focus on APEC island economies. In this current project proposal, we aim to engage with APEC cities to generate ways to make design sustainable mobility solutions.

Cross-collaboration and coordination with other projects are central to this current proposed work. This project aims to seek ways to accelerate and complement work done by ministries /municipalities in APEC economies by coordinating our work with other International partners.

Additionally, we will capitalize on seed projects of the Low Emissions Development Strategic Partnership and Asia Regional Platforms, which also participate and support the implementation of the capacity-building workshop. Connecting APEC economies in the region more closely through our regional Communities of Practice will lead to the development of more sustained long-term solutions for participants.

APEC’s commitment to the development of “safe, secure, resilient, efficient and sustainable transport systems, and to promote innovations in the transport sector”. Makes it the most attractive funding source in the region. Furthermore, our capacity-building efforts proposed in this project will challenges and solutions for the transition to sustainable, energy-efficient public transport systems in APEC economies.

Progress of outcomes and long-term impacts will be assessed via information surveys after the seminar, which may be implemented 6 or 12 months after project completion. The goal of surveys is to gather information on any learnings from the capacity building workshop that may have generated a new outcome, initiative, pilot project or discuss for new coordination across sectors that previously did not exist.

All participants of this project will be invited to join our regional organization in Asia. The organization is focused on Clean Mobility and Electric Mobility.  The activities within our organization are member-driven, and our peer-learning platforms cater to priorities decided by members. The current memberships include some participants from APEC members. As such, the APEC members that join have the ability to learn from their peers as well as to play a leadership role on regional progress in select topics. As states earlier, one of the objectives of this project is to provide a long-term, sustainable dialogue, which will be achieved through these mechanisms. The beneficiaries of this project will be further supported within these communities, and members are also will utilized when appropriate as a knowledge-sharing mechanism.

The next steps and building off of these projects can be tracked by our future APEC concept notes. We are currently assessing future regional needs and further concept notes are in design stages. We will use the learnings from the project to generate ideas for more regional work in APEC economies in Asia.

For a long-term pathway for continued dialogue, we will incorporate new members into our existing communities of Practice in Asia. Knowledge sharing and peer-learning with the APEC economies by encouraging new APEC members into our regional Community of Practices, and promoting regional economic integration complementing the efforts.

The project will deliver remarkable and long-term impacts on APEC economies. The seminar, Workshop Summary, demo station video, and project Final Report will publish on the APEC website to enhance APEC economies’ capacity with a view to improving energy efficiency and operational performance in the Transport sector, reducing energy intensity, exploring energy retrofits, and adopting innovation and technology applications through. Furthermore, the project provides a sharing platform for policy-makers, experts, academia, professionals, practitioners, international organizations, and APEC economies to map out strategies for developing and implementing, preparing guidelines, and creating project opportunities in the energy industry. The diversified background of speakers and participants will form a cooperative network for information exchange. The Project Final Report will publish on the APEC website to allow speakers, participants, EWG, and the general public to appreciate the energy efficiency improvement. Eventually, we are looking foreword to seeing greater investment in ESS developments in APEC economies.

Project Overseers

The project will be overseered by Professor Ching-Ming Lai, an associate professor in Department of Electrical Engineering at Chung Hsing University, Chinese Taipei. Dr. Lai is also as a director of Intelligent Electric Vehicle and Green Energy Technologies Center, and director of  Intelligent Transportation Development Center at Chung Hsing University, Chinese Taipei. Besides, he is the Fellow of the Australian Institute of Energy (AIE), the Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). Also, he is the editor of IEEE Trans. Vehicular Technology.

All of the project will be implemented and coordinated and peer-learning activities across the Asia and Chinese Taipei regional platforms by Dr, Lai and he will be the main point of contact responsible for this project.

Leading Researchers

Technical support:

(1)     Review of secondary information for case study selection. (note: This integration technique requires previous studies to help us apply to e-scooters. Previous studies and cases focus on how to build a low-carbon cars by  electric vehicle. In this project, the developmet of ESS on e-scooters can not only reduce greenhouse emission but utilize the power while in emergency situation, that’s why we need to review related previous researches datas. e.g. ESS on electric vehicle.)

(3)  ESS system with e-scooter. (note: We intend to integrate existing inverter and ESS techniques into independent power system, which will be applied to e-scooters. In this case, there will be not financially benefit from the project. Furthermore this approach will be circulated through APEC economies as knowledge-sharing.
