uYilo To Scale E-Mobility Projects Across Africa After EU Funding Deal

By Sibahle Malinga

The uYilo eMobility Programme has received multimillion-rand funding from the European Union, which it says will be used to enable and mobilise electric mobility across Africa.

The uYilo Electric Mobility Programme was established in 2013 as a multi-stakeholder collaboration focused on enabling, facilitating and mobilising electric mobility in SA.

It is an initiative of the Technology Innovation Agency, a public entity of the Department of Science and Innovation.

According to uYilo, the new funding falls within the Smart Energy Solutions for Africa (SESA) project that forms part of the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for “Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future: Research and innovation”, established in support of the European Green Deal.
