The Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (iCSC) – Ejeepneys

iCSC works on sustainable energy solutions and fair climate policy. The ejeepney conversion programme shall transform the diesel-fed traditional jeepneys – the Philippines’ most popular means of public transport - into battery-powered electric vehicles. This substantially reduces local air pollution and carbon emissions. Multicabs from Tacloban whose engines were damaged by typhoon Haiyan will be fitted with electric motors, rendering the vehicles as useful public transport vehicles once again.
