In a bid offer a cleaner last mile solution, Gogoro, the global battery swapping specialist has saved 287 million litres of fuel and 603 million kilogram of Co2 in the last one decade as more and more users in Taiwan and other parts of the world adopted the Gogoro's last mile solution.

With over 2 million users and 400 million battery swaps till date, Gogoro has been gradually expanding its footprint with an open 360˚ ecosystem approach, that is AI-powered and cloud-connected, to deliver the most accessible urban energy solution, claims the company.

The system is constantly learning, adjusting, and optimizing the smart batteries and swapping stations to enable a variety of smart city solutions.

The details were shared in Gogoro's "Impact Report" which highlighted Gogoro’s progress in sustainability and ESG.

“What a difference a decade makes. Ten years ago, few were contemplating the urban energy and transportation transformation or addressing the plight that cities were facing because of air pollution and other negative effects of climate change. We started Gogoro to address these challenges and fundamentally change urban transportation for the better, and we are making progress. Today, we are introducing our first Gogoro Impact Report to highlight this progress we’ve made in our ESG initiatives and outline our future intentions,” said Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro.

Luke says the report summarized Gogoro's commitment and progress in four key strategic areas: cleaner planet, safety & resilience, responsible business and social impact.

"We believe these four areas are key to our success in achieving smarter, cleaner, and safer cities,” he added.

Gogoro, which is currently piloting a study in India in partnership with Zypp, has an ambition of establishing a presence in the Indian market. Gogoro has already partnered Badve Engineerings' arm Belrise to invest $2.5 billion in the Maharashtra state.

Gogoro’s research clearly indicated that adoption of two-wheel EVs is already making a meaningful difference, said the company.

The two and three wheelers are widely used for daily commutes in most megacities, especially in Asia and Africa. The adoption of two- and three-wheel EVs is already making meaningful progress as the oil displacement from two- and three-wheel EVs is approximately five times that of four-wheel passenger EVs.

The company expects the adoptions of two and three wheel EVs will accelerate due to a combination of policy support, growing customer acceptance, improvement in battery technology and new compelling models from vehicle makers.

The key takeaways from Gogoro’s research comparing two- and three-wheel electric vehicles versus four-wheel electric cars clearly indicates the impact that Gogoro can have.  

Its Swap & Go model is essential for urban centers: as it can provide up to 67% lower GHG emissions per passenger kilometer. It saves time: the swap & go is up to 93X faster to refuel and it saves upto 5.1 times of space.

Gogoro plugs into Smart Grid Technologies

Gogoro’s battery swapping system not only allows users to refuel their electric scooters quickly and easily, but it also has the potential to integrate renewable power into electricity grids through Virtual Power Plants and demand response programs, claims the company.

The Taiwanese two wheeler major has partnered with Enel X, the world's leading virtual power plant (VPP), and state-run Taipower Co. to establish the world's first bidirectional charging system via Gogoro's existing battery swapping stations.

Gogoro Adopts Renewable Energy

In 2022, Gogoro began purchasing renewable energy in Taiwan to further reduce the amount of scope 2 emissions caused by its manufacturing, retail operations and battery swapping service. With a long-term goal of achieving 100% renewable energy, in 2022, it achieved 40% renewable energy in its factory operations and at two retail stores.
