Tianjin... The world’s leading power management provider Eaton recently attended Higer Intelligence Energy-saving Technology Forum held in Tianjin Airport Economic Area. The company’s executives delivered speech in the event as representative of outstanding parts manufacturers.

As China’s industrialization and urbanization moves forward, how to realize sustainable development in urban transportation is catching more and more attention. As a big component of this system, road bus is facing multiple challenges, including reducing fuel consumption and exhaust, energy consumption and atmosphere pollution; ensuring stability, efficiency (driving performance, reliability, safety and attendance) and safe operation; cutting more cost in the maintenance of service life. These have become urgent problems that China’s public transportation should tackle immediately.

Mrs. Ma Kefei, China’s Truck Product Planning Manager with Eaton Automobile Group introduced AMT (automatic mechanical transmission) and hybrid power solutions in her speech titled “New Energy-saving Technology for Public Transportation Equipment”. She said Eaton’s mature and reliable AMT can help solve various challenges of energy-saving and emission reduction for public vehicles, and its excellent performance can ensure vehicles’ reliable and safety operation, save oil, improve efficiency, reduce maintenance cost and driver training cost, and reducing the total cost for life cycle. As for alternative energy of commercial vehicles, the world’s leading Eaton hybrid power system also performs very well. The vehicles equipped with hybrid power system have the same performance as ones impelled by traditional powers. However with less dependency on traditional powers, it's more environment-friendly. The combination of mature vehicle clean energy technology (hybrid power) and abundant market experience guarantees Eaton's ability to help local customers realize their long-run target of energy saving, emission reduction and efficiency improvement.

The theme for this year's Higer Intelligence Energy-saving Technology Forum was "Smart Public Transportation and Awareness of Energy-saving" with aims of encouraging public awareness for green city and green transportation.
