Electrification of vehicles is the key to moving towards net zero emissions and improving air pollution. Delta Electronics foundation is in partnership with ZEV, an electric vehicle sharing services provider, to promote a mobile pollution source monitoring network that will install fine particulate PM2.5 and carbon monoxide sensors on electric taxis, turning real-time data into user-friendly maps of air pollution in urban streets. It is hoped that this project will help roll out a larger air quality maintenance zone to expedite the availability of zero-polluting electric vehicles on the road and cut down on a quarter of the sources of air pollution in the city, thereby maintaining the health of the public's respiratory system.

The foundation also worked with Minghu Elementary School in Neihu to build an air quality monitoring map by installing sensors on campus traffic cones and using second-hand iPhone reports to investigate the correlation between air quality and transportation vehicles around the campus during the peak times when students are entering and leaving school. The project allows students to participate in setting up the monitors and analyzing the data, thereby encouraging the use of low-carbon vehicles and promoting no idling in campus drop-off and pick-up areas. Moreover, the foundation also organizes energy volunteer training sessions to turn the data collected into low-carbon transport teaching materials, using scientific experiments to make it easier for volunteers to understand the vicious cycle of air pollution and how electric vehicles can help lower traffic pollution.
