    Charging Ahead: Accelerating E-Mobility in Africa

    Join us to hear insights from our latest report Charging Ahead – Accelerating e-mobility in Africa, which explores the e-mobility opportunity and gathers valuable learnings from three PREO-supported companies operating across sub-Saharan Africa.

    Motorcycles, whether electric or powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE) are popular across sub-Saharan Africa as a mode of transport and a means of employment. From motorcycles to tuk-tuks, buses, boats and agricultural vehicles, early-stage businesses are expanding the sub-Saharan Africa electric mobility market. It is projected that by 2050, 80% of all global motorcycle sales will be electric motorcycles.

    During the event, we will bring together a range of experts and innovators to share views on the e-mobility opportunity. The event will feature the following:

    • Perspectives from keynote speaker Victoria Sabula, CEO of AECF (Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund) a leading non-profit development organisation.
    • The official launch of Charging Ahead: Accelerating e-mobility in Africa by the Carbon Trust and Energy 4 Impact
    • Panel discussion between the three e-mobility companies featured in the report; Mobile Power, Zembo and Roam joined by the Principal of Investments and Venture Building at African VC, Persistent Capital.
    • Open Capital will provide pre-launch information on a new e-mobility initiative.

    The event is relevant for a range of funders and donors, impact investors, project developers, and potential partners in the energy access space with a strategic interest in e-mobility.

    Please register and join us at this exciting launch event.

    This event is being hosted by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Powering Renewable Energy Opportunities Programme (PREO). PREO is funded by the Ikea Foundation and UK aid via the Transforming Energy Access platform and delivered by the Carbon Trust and Energy 4 Impact. By registering for this event you are agreeing for your data to be shared with the programme partners for future communication relating to PREO and related initiatives.

    Time: 08:00 – 09:00 EDT
