Uganda National Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Alliance

E-Mobility Startup Energy Webinar

E-mobility is a global trend that could revolutionize the way people get around the world. But mobility in Africa is at a very different stage of development than in other parts of the world. Consequently, e-mobility in Africa must also offer specific and adapted solutions to be efficient.

These solutions are being developed by very creative and innovative African start-ups. These companies do not simply copy a model from abroad, but have developed solutions based on practical knowledge of the market and the needs of users. After all, who else but people who experience the challenges of African mobility on a daily basis can develop the right solutions for the continent?

In this web seminar we will, among other things:

  • discuss how electric motorcycles powered by community-based, off-grid energy supply can incentivize increased economic activity, create new local markets, and improve rural livelihoods in Zimbabwe.
  • discuss the acceleration of a sustainable transition to renewable energy technologies and products in Uganda.
  • Present the development of a system to collect and transmit performance data for solar powered light electric vehicles in Kenya.

Participation is free of charge, registration is required. To the registration.
